Guaranteed Rate Field
This project was unique. Along with being the sports venue of one of our favorite Chicago teams, we had to consider the multi-use space as we helped construct and renovate the field. Along with the field itself, there are restaurants, retail, and luxury entertaining spaces. Plus, there are spaces that host the players, providing spaces for them to practice and recoup. But, we also had to consider the lighting of the field for the viewers physically present and the digital viewers. To accomplish optimal lighting, along with all the build outs happening of hospitality venues within the field, we hand-focused over 600 light fixtures to make sure the field was covered from all angles. We finished the project in 18 months and it was completed in 1991.
