Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center

University of Notre Dame South Bend, Indiana, USA

LED lighting solution increases performance while reducing energy consumption

Building on a relationship with Notre Dame that spans more than 20 years, Musco recently installed LED sports floodlighting for the Purcell Pavilion arena at the Joyce Centre. As part of the University's Energy Conservation Measures programme, this state-of-the-art system reduces energy consumption by 73% when operating at full capacity for event lighting. Additionally, the new floodlighting system provides an increase in performance, surpassing critical vertical illuminance requirements for NCAA broadcast.

Dimming controls allow for further energy savings and maintenance costs are nearly eliminated.

Musco is proud to continue our relationship with Notre Dame and help them reach their sustainability goals.


“The new system provides very consistent light levels across
the arena and excellent colour rendition. The basketball coaches are thrilled with the new lighting.”
