Bucknell University’s Gerhard Fieldhouse

SETTING

Bucknell University Gerhard Fieldhouse, Lewisburg, PA
The indoor sports complex houses Bucknell’s indoor track and field facility as well as basketball, tennis, racquetball and volleyball courts.

PROBLEM

The Gerhard Fieldhouse’s existing 112 indirect lighting fixtures that were less than ten years old and in good condition but they had an unacceptable system wattage of 1.15 kW each.

SOLUTION

For the project, Noribachi engineered 112 custom LED light retrofits using a HEX-252 light engine to replace the metal halide bulbs in the facility’s existing indirect light fixtures. The installation of the LED retrofit solution enhanced energy efficiency by reducing the 1.15 kW per fixture system wattage created by the bulbs as well as reduced material waste associated with re-lamping and cut maintenance costs.
