The Millfield School in Somerset, England is widely recognized as an elite academic institution that also prides itself in athletic achievements. After resurfacing two field hockey pitches, Millfield decided to address concerns with its old lighting equipment: lamp failures, high maintenance and energy costs, and excessive spill light and sky glow. A long-standing partner of Musco, contractor Verde Recreo chose to install Musco’s Light-Structure Green™ LED lighting system.
Millfield wanted to maintain the aesthetics of the complex, and not impact the surrounding campus. Musco’s advanced optics precisely control and direct light onto the playing surface, maximizing energy efficiency and eliminating unwanted spill light into the environment. The lighting solution will provide a brighter and more uniform light distribution across the two field hockey pitches, while reducing energy consumption by 66 percent when compared to typical lights.
