Milwaukee School of Engineering, Viets Field
Cree helps Milwaukee School of Engineering set a new standard for sustainability with the construction of Viets Field, one of the first 100 percent LED-lit competitive athletic fields in the country.
When Milwaukee School of Engineering® began designing a new home field for their men and women’s soccer teams, they were ready to push the limits on what an athletic field could be – and where it could be located. In 2013, the university cut the ribbon on a state-of-the-art athletic facility built on top of an in-ground 780-car-capacity parking deck in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. With Viets Field, MSOE® sets a new standard for sustainability on university campuses, constructing one of the first 100 percent LED-lit competitive athletic fields in the country. When selecting lighting for the facility, MSOE engineers and designers turned to Cree, the industry leader in LED lighting, to provide the crisp, clear light needed to lead the MSOE Raiders to victory.
