Bank of America Stadium
Comprehensive lighting system design and installation for 74,000 seat stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, home to the Carolina Panthers.
New technology can give any facility new life. Even in multi-million dollar sports complexes like Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers and host to major professional and collegiate sporting events, strategic and well-planned improvements can really score big.
When an $87.5 million upgrade was approved, WB Moore was chosen as the design/build electrical contractor and engineer.
WB Moore implemented exterior accent lighting including installing one product on top of the stadium domes (100 feet in the air!) using color-changing, programmable LED ribs pre-fabbed on the ground and installed by a sub-contracted rigging company.
unique challenges overcome:
Non-typical surfaces, specialized applications and environments.
Exterior installations in excess of 100 feet in the air.
Short window for completion -- Project began in March and had to be completed by July.
1,500 linear feet of new light fixtures on exterior structure composed of 24,000 color-changing LED nodes.
Advanced lighting control designed for current and future lighting improvements, integrated into custom AV equipment rooms througuout the facility.
Lighting control system allows for color-changing scene selection for various events and activities shuch as a "touchdown".
The proof? A sports stadium that rivals any in the country in terms of spectator enjoyment and community pride.
