Crestron has become a lighting control vendor for Lambeau Field, the iconic home stadium of the Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, Wisc.
Crestron was selected to replace and upgrade the stadium-wide controls. The Crestron installation is a cohesive lighting automation system that allows stadium management to update lighting preferences and monitor and control energy expenditures for the facility.
In operation since 1957, Lambeau Field 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.
Lambeau Field transitioned the majority of lighting in the stadium to Crestron, which now controls concourses, suites, club seats, event spaces, parking lots and facade lighting from a single platform.
The stadium also implemented robust information security standards that Crestron built into the makeup of its solutions using Active Directory credential management, which integrates the authentication on a Crestron device with the stadium’s enterprise-wide IT infrastructure.
Inside the Lambeau Field Installation
Through Crestron monitoring, facilities personnel can keep track of their system instead of having to react to situations, ensuring they know the system will work as intended on gameday.
“We now have one vendor and one system that is easy to use and update,” said Anne Larson, facilities office coordinator for the Green Bay Packers.
Packers management is exploring the renovation of several other areas around Lambeau Field.
“As we renovate areas of the building, we’ll have the option to create unique lighting scenes that will only add to the fan experience,” said Larson. “The Green Bay Packers are confident we can provide a world-class experience for our fans for years to come.”
“We’re thrilled to partner with one of America’s most beloved stadiums to implement cutting-edge lighting solutions aimed to deliver the ultimate fan experience on gameday,” said Bill Schafer, VP of commercial lighting at Crestron.
