After a nearly seven-year approval process halted construction for Clark County’s expansive sports complex at George Rogers Clark (GRC) High School, student-athletes and community members will finally enjoy athletic facilities of their own. The project introduces new football, baseball, softball, and tennis facilities that include innovative designs and features like an artificial turf football field with a safety shock-absorbing system, making the complex one of the best of its kind in all of Kentucky. The school needed lighting for the new fields and courts and wanted an LED sports lighting solution that would provide superior light control and intuitive operational features to optimize the experience for players, fans, and staff.
School leaders determined Musco and its Total Light Control – TLC for LED™ system would best achieve the school’s lighting goals. Musco was able to provide custom-built solutions that cater to each sport’s lighting requirements, achieving desired light levels on each field of play and qualifying GRC to host state-level competitions and tournaments. The system’s factory-aiming capability and patented light control technology ensures controlled lighting is evenly applied to the playing surfaces without creating glare or spill that could affect neighboring facilities. Additionally, Musco’s Control-Link® service provides 24/7 monitoring of the system’s performance and enables simple operation via smartphone, while the parts and labor warranty eliminates maintenance costs for the system through the year 2044.
