Crestron to Upgrade Lighting Controls at Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field

May 19, 2021
Lambeau Field selected Crestron as lighting control vendor to create an advanced, cohesive system to streamline operations and reduce energy costs throughout the two million-square-foot stadium.

Crestron, Rockleigh, NJ, a commercial lighting control manufacturer, will replace and upgrade the stadium-wide controls at Lambeau Field, home of the NFL’s Green Bay Packers in Green Bay, WI.

Lambeau Field transitioned the vast majority of lighting in the stadium to Crestron, which now controls concourses, suites, club seats, event spaces, parking lots and facade lighting from a single platform. The stadium also implemented robust information security standards that Crestron built into the makeup of its solutions using Active Directory Credential Management, which integrates the authentication on a Crestron device with the stadium's enterprise-wide IT infrastructure. Through Crestron monitoring, facilities personnel can proactively keep track of their system instead of having to react to situations, ensuring that on gameday, they know the system will work as intended.

In operation since 1957, Lambeau Field is one of the most legendary and longstanding sporting venues in the United States. The stadium underwent a significant renovation in 2001 and has added several upgrades and expansions since then. As a result of these two decades of changes, there were over 12 disparate lighting control systems from different manufacturers that were not fully integrated. Lambeau Field is exploring the renovation of several other areas, and Crestron provides extensive flexibility for growth.

Anne Larson, facilities office coordinator for the Green Bay Packers, said in the press release, "It was evident that Crestron could handle every aspect of the project, including meeting required IT security standards using Active Directory. We now have one vendor and one system that is easy to use and update."

"We're thrilled to partner with one of America's most beloved stadiums to implement cutting-edge lighting solutions aimed to deliver the ultimate fan experience on gameday," said Bill Schafer, Crestron’s VP of commercial lighting, said in the press release. "When designing the new system, our focus was on creating a truly unified ecosystem and single point of lighting control that helps streamline stadium operations and reduce energy consumption. In the last year, stadium usage and capacity changed dramatically. The new Crestron system is highly scalable – it can be configured and built upon as the stadium's needs change and we look ahead to the future of live events."
