American Airlines Center Dallas, Texas
ChallengeThe American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, decided to replace aging and substandard lighting in their parking garages. Outfitted with 150W high-pressure sodium and 175W metal halide fixtures, the garages had experienced a significant degradation in lighting performance and reliability. Leroy Juel, master electrician for the AAC, described the current lighting system as a maintenance nightmare. AAC management was looking for new lighting technology that would not only ease the maintenance workload but also provide a better aesthetic for visitors to the venue.
SolutionFSG suggested the venue should consider Cree IG-series LED Parking Structure luminaires. Following a trial installation of four luminaires, AAC management was immediately convinced. FSG got to work replacing all the other legacy lighting fixtures in the parking garage facility.
ResultThe new LED fixtures provide much more uniform light of significantly higher quality, and the particular fixtures used are designed to avoid a common "cave effect" that can occur with more traditional lighting systems. All work was completed to the customer's satisfaction.
Once the project was complete, Juel praised the new look of the garages, stating "Management loves the fact that our visitors' first impression is going to be a very positive one."
FSG projects consistently deliver excellence for our customers, for our employees, and for the communities we serve.
We see each project as an opportunity to embrace our mission and provide superior value through quality products, service, and support.
