Sports Complex Lighting


An Illinois municipality had recently completed construction of an addition to their sports complex and needed assistance with lighting design and construction bidding. Utility Design Services was retained to design the lighting layout and power distribution for two football/soccer fields, four baseball/softball fields and the roadway and sidewalk inside the complex.

UDS provided a complete bid package for the municipal’s use in obtaining competitive bids.  UDS coordinated the extension of the utility three phase primary underground circuit (12.47kV) into the sports complex property and worked with utility representatives to develop the most economical method of providing a new service to the sports fields.  Multiple lighting system manufacturers were consulted to produce bid documents that would provide the Village with a lighting system to meet their needs, and not exceed budgets.
