Welsh-Ryan Arena Renovation

Northwestern University

Pivotal is pleased to be part of the design team for this complete gut renovation of Northwestern University’s Welsh-Ryan Arena. The renovation focuses on enhancing the fan experience with spacious and modern lobbies, concessions, and premium club dining areas. State-of-the-art offices, media suite, locker rooms, training, and hydrotherapy facilities are also included.

The lighting is designed to be fully integrated with the architecture, accentuating the clean and modern aesthetic of the spaces, while maximizing visual comfort for occupants. Pivotal worked closely with the design team to highlight branding locations, and LED sources with a custom diode mix are used to accurately and vibrantly reproduce NU’s signature purple color in high-profile public areas.

A fully addressable lighting control system allows for maximum flexibility in programming, and interfaces with the University’s existing campus system to provide remote monitoring and maintenance alerts to the facilities staff.
