The Crestron installation is a cohesive lighting automation system that allows stadium management to easily upgrade lighting preferences and closely monitor and control energy expenditures for Lambeau Field.

Lambeau Leaps for Integrated Lighting Solution

Using disparate lighting control systems, Lambeau Field sought a solution from one single lighting platform. In operation since 1957, Lambeau Field is one of the most legendary and long-standing sporting venues in the United States. The stadium underwent a significant renovation in 2001 and has added several upgrades and expansions since then. As a result of these two decades of changes, there were over 12 disparate lighting control systems from different manufacturers that were not fully integrated. This sparked the search for a single technology provider that could unify and standardize solutions into one ecosystem.

156-unit net-zero village complex, Rotterdam, N.Y.

All Go for Green

MDU development recently completed a 156-unit net-zero village complex in Rotterdam, N.Y. The complex uses submetering from Leviton, including its new Load Center, to remotely monitor energy use for each apartment. This allows staff to see comparisons in HVAC and energy usage, and detect variances, which can sometimes point to malfunctioning equipment, or units consuming excess energy. Yet it’s unobtrusive, and as project developer David Bruns points out, the load center is right in plain view. “It’s a great improvement over the stodgy load centers of the past.”
