Red Bull Arena

Faced with multiple lighting challenges at new Red Bull Arena, the construction team tapped into Musco's value-added capabilities. The 25,000-seat venue's unique structural steel geometry tasked construction managers with lighting performance issues, and the catwalk system presented luminaire attachment and maintenance concerns. Musco solved both problems by designing custom-built mounting brackets that allowed the system's quadrants to be placed in optimum locations for players and TV cameras. When site constraints demanded four separate product deliveries, Musco representatives were on-site each time to instruct and support crews. The installation solutions were matched with the system's outstanding energy savings and a ten year product assurance and warranty program to provide Red Bull Arena, Inc., with an efficient system that will provide constant high-definition broadcast-quality lighting for decades to come.

Key Issues

Quality of Light

  • Achieves light level requirements for television broadcasts for the MSG, MSG Plus, Telefutura, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, Fox Sports Channel, and Fox Sports en Espanol

  • Musco designed custom-built mounting brackets to meet the venue's unique structural needs for a trouble-free installation and guaranteed performance

Life-Cycle Savings

  • 10-year projected life-cycle savings is over $217,000 through reduced energy consumption, group lamp replacements, and maintenance provided by Musco

“Building operations will be able to rely on the maintenance warranty, which will significantly reduce yearly operating costs for replacement of bulbs and capital costs on a complete bulb.”
