Ephesus to install LEDs at Saskatchewan Roughriders’ new home
By Renée Francoeur
Mosaic Stadium, which is currently under construction, becomes the second new stadium construction project this year to be built with Ephesus LED lighting, and the first CFL stadium to employ LED lighting, Ephesus says.
“Sports and entertainment venue operators all across North America have come to understand that solid state LED lighting is the premier lighting solution and a great way to enhance the fan experience,” says Mike Lorenz, president of Ephesus Lighting. “We commend the stadium project team for understanding the advantages of LED and choosing our lighting solution for the benefit of their fans, players, broadcast partners and facility operations team.”
Ephesus Lighting notes it is providing a fully integrated system including factory mounted brackets and wiring for easy installation. Additionally, the system will be controlled by the Ephesus wireless control system, which will eliminate the need for thousands of ft of cable, the company says.
The stadium at Evraz Place will have a capacity of 33,000 and be expandable to 40,000 for major events, according to the project team. It is being built by PCL Construction Management and designed by HKS Architects. It is expected to be finished in August 2016, with the first Roughrider game scheduled for 2017.
