Wilmington, MA – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA announced that SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions (SLS), an OSRAM Americas company and industry leader in turnkey energy management solutions, designed and executed a comprehensive LED lighting and controls upgrade for TD Garden, home of the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics, as well as world-renowned concerts, sporting events, family shows, ice shows and other events. The full solution SLS provided included an ENCELIUM® light management system.

SLS provided a suite of services to TD Garden with a single point of contact, including an audit and survey of the existing lighting system, project management (including rebate administration), and design, installation and commissioning of the new energy-efficient lighting solution. Full interior photometric designs with 3D light rendering for TD Garden were developed out of the SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions Design Center in Middletown, New York. The SLS “one source” approach helped save time, money and energy. The whole process was streamlined, helping make complex lighting and energy solutions easier to implement at TD Garden.

“Delaware North and the Jacobs family are committed to bringing an environmentally responsible approach to all our building projects. We wanted our renovations to also incorporate the latest and greatest technology, and SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions brought that with LED and associated controls aligned perfectly with our design intent,” said Hugh Lombardi, senior vice president and general manager of TD Garden. “The new LED lighting and lighting controls help the TD Garden by providing better energy efficiency, operational cost reduction, consistent presentation and control, flexibility to address various tenant/client needs, and future opportunities to expand and evolve.”

“Companies like TD Garden turn to SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions to customize a fully integrated solution with the latest lighting and controls technologies to reduce energy consumption, increase maintenance productivity and ultimately save money,” said Todd Myers, CEO of SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “Sports and entertainment legends have performed at the Garden and they continue to amaze crowds there. In addition, the Garden holds a special place in the hearts of New Englanders, and we knew we had to deliver the best solution. The result is a new LED lighting and controls system that fully utilizes best practice and state-of-the-art technology.”

The project began in 2013 and was finished in October 2014. SYLVANIA Lighting Solutions continues to work with the Garden on additional enhancements to the facility, because like with a championship team, there is always the next victory to claim.
