McKinney Independent School District (ISD) spent roughly eight years planning construction of its new $70 million project, which consists of a 12,000-seat football stadium that is home to three of the district’s high schools. High school football is a big part of the culture in Texas, and district leaders wanted to deliver an unforgettable atmosphere with exceptional visibility and minimized glare and spill at what would be among the biggest and most expensive high school stadiums in the country.
After visiting other stadiums lit by Musco, and looking into several lighting manufacturers, McKinney ISD determined Musco’s Total Light Control—TLC for LED™ system was the superior solution for their project. The system’s custom optics and factory-aiming help deliver cleaner, more uniform light to the field, creating superior visibility. And its patented visoring around the fixtures minimizes glare and spill from affecting the homes of neighbors, who had been concerned about the stadium’s lighting.
