LOCATION: Chicago, IL
SCOPE: 175W HPS Decorative fixtures converted to Lumecon’s LED 60w LROF fixture
DESCRIPTION: One of the most prominent landmarks in the Chicagoland area, Soldier Field displays numerous events throughout the year. Most notably, this venue plays host to the National Football League’s Chicago Bears. Known as one of the greatest venues during the “Golden Age of Sports,” the stadium recently underwent a renovation to modernize the structure as well as its surrounding parkland areas. With this 20-month renovation project came a partnership with Lumecon. Working closely with engineers and architects to ensure appropriate light levels were accurately achieved throughout the site, Lumecon’s Ring of Fire decorative globe was specified as the fixture of choice.
RESULTS: Soldier Field has installed over 180 – 60W LROF Fixtures with their recent stadium renovation project. Taking the place of the pre-existing 175W HPS fixtures, Lumecon led a helping hand in Soldier Field becoming the first North American stadium to receive the LEED-EB award.
