Lumenpulse, a producer of superior performance, architectural LED-based lighting products for institutional, commercial and metropolitan environments has deployed its LED lights at BC Place Stadium, once a landmark but now a treasure of the Vancouver skyline.
After 25 years of featuring a series of sports, cultural, musical, community and exhibition events including a Pope John Paul II address, Michael Jackson and Madonna concerts, Winter Olympics events and ceremonies and BC Lions Canadian Football League games, the construction was recently modernized and restructured. The owners of the stadium, BC Pavilion decided to enhance considerably the experience of the guests coming to the stadium by hiring lighting consultants C.M. Kling and renowned architects, Stantec Architecture who crafted a design that will enable the stadium to be an outstanding icon of the cityscape. The Lumenfacade, Lumenpulse and Lumenbeam products were made to work synchronously with remarkable architectural aspects such as a splendid cable and a retractable roof supported by a mast with a portico made of a transparent polymer, ETFE to completely transform the look of the stadium. The restructuring project amounted to $563M and the Lumenfacade RGB fittings are installed on the steel beams holding the transparent facade material to provide a pleasant band of color surrounding the stadium, while Lumenbeam RGB luminaires are fitted on the poles to furnish the roof with colored light.
Before the sports teams actually occupy the stadium, the Lumenpulse series illuminates the stadium with each team’s signature colors, increasing team spirit inside the stadium and enabling those outside to be aware of who is going to play. Slowly moving abstract designs are exhibited on the façade with dynamic and fixed roof colors created in order to revive the crowd especially during goal scoring or while participating in a wave.
