UBC Thunderbird Arena

CNJ Lighting Solutions in partnership with Pacific Audio Works has installed the Ephesus LED product into the 4th arena in BC.

The new Ephesus LED lighting system installed at UBC Thunderbird Arena, housed within the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre, at the University of British Columbia is a hybrid system comprised of 46 Ephesus Arena 600 lights plus 41 of the remaining metal halide fixtures.

“Our fans and student athletes deserve the best and, after much research, it became clear to us that the Ephesus LED lighting system is the superior arena lighting product on the market,” explained Dan Cooper, UBC Facilities Manager. “The opportunity to combine improved lighting quality with substantial energy savings made it the perfect solution for our needs.”

The Ephesus fixtures will be used to provide 100 FC of lighting for daily usage. The metal halide lights will supplement the LED lights for major events requiring up to 240 FC’s. The new system is projected to reduce power consumption by over 70% at the 7,000 seat facility.
