Ricoh Coliseum is a 7,800 seat historic ice hockey and agricultural arena at Exhibition Place in Toronto. It serves as the home arena of the Toronto Marlies, the American Hockey League affiliate team of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Smith + Andersen performed the LED lighting retrofit.
A catwalk system was added requiring lighting and power for new equipment winches for the scoreboard.
1000W metal halide system downlights were replaced with LED flood luminaires to provide higher lighting uniformity and reduced estimated energy consumption by 50%. The new lighting system targets an average of 150 fc on the playing surface, allowing the facility to have HDTV broadcasting capabilities. The lights were integrated into a Lutron dimming system for improvement of operational use and additional energy savings. The system can be dimmed from the control booth and with portable remote controls from anywhere inside the bowl.
