South Bend Saves Money and Time While Equipping School Field with New Lighting System

Board members within South Bend Public Schools in Indiana determined that a new lighting system was needed at the historic School Field to go along with other recent improvements. The Board had recently directed $1.2 million in funding towards the renovations at the stadium, and was able to take advantage of a cooperative purchasing contract to save money and time on the bid process. The availability of the cooperative contract–which few lighting manufacturers offer–as well as a high level of trust from partnering on previous successful lighting projects made Musco and its TLC for LED technology the clear choice for
South Bend.

  • The cooperative purchasing contract streamlined the installation process, which had to be completed in a very tight window of time before the start of football season.
  • Glare and light spill is prevented from affecting nearby homes on Sunnymede Avenue along the north side of the field, as well as residential areas located on the heavily traveled S Eddy St.
  • School Field has state-of-the-art lighting it can rely on for trouble-free operation as a result of Musco’s complete system approach, with lighting, structural, and electrical components designed to work together.
  • South Bend Public Schools won’t pay maintenance on the lights through the year 2044 with Musco’s long-term warranty covering every part and all labor.
