Huston’s Role: Provide and install new LED light fixtures
In August, Huston Electric provided and installed new LED lighting over the competition pool and diving well in the Purdue Aquatic Center. After being awarded with the project, Huston got right to work acquiring fixtures and planning ahead. The schedule only allowed for 3 weeks with completion required by the middle of August. The first step was to demo the existing large and heavy light fixtures and frames. In their place, Huston provided and installed new Lux Dynamics Wave LED light fixtures. From demo to final clean up the project took 2.5 weeks to complete. This was thanks to a great Purdue staff, our skilled electricians, and the help of two 77’ atrium lifts. The new, LED lights should pay for themselves in a short 14 months and with the new fixtures weighing only one third of the old, Purdue has even mentioned using the roof for alternative purposes. The Purdue University staff seem very pleased with Huston’s ability to provide a high quality product within the time restraints given. David Boudia, Olympic diver and Purdue Alum was excited about the new lighting in the Aquatics Center and even took to social media to applaud Purdue on the new upgrade.
