American Airlines Center Dallas, Texas

Case Study
"Management loves the fact that visitors' first impression is a very positive one."


The American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, desired 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.


He was looking for a new technology that would not only ease the maintenance workload but also provide a better aesthetic.


Facility Solutions Group provided the answer with Cree IG-series LED Parking Structure luminaires. A trial installation of four luminaires was conducted first, and AAC management was immediately convinced. The new LED fixtures provide much more uniform light of significantly higher quality, and the particular fixtures used also are designed to avoid a common "cave effect" that can occur with more traditional lighting systems. Juel praised the new look of the garages
