UC BERKELEY – Cal Memorial Stadium & Simpson High Performance Center

Igniting gameday — the interplay of light and architecture energize the Cal Golden Bears.

Opened in September of 2012, the center saw the construction of new locker rooms, offices, meeting rooms, training and sports medicine facilities, and an academic center in the high performance center. The roof of the athletic center also acts as a pedestrian plaza.

HLB Lighting Design provided lighting services for Phase 1, new construction of the Student Athlete High Performance Center next to the west wall of the stadium renovations. Phase 2 consisted of a retrofit and renovation to the California Memorial Stadium. Phase 3 consisted of a renovation to the stadium’s east side by adding modern amenities to existing facilities. Innovative lighting levels, fixtures and lighting patterns were used for all 3 phases of the project as prospective athletes and the public are allowed to tour the facility, creating a cohesive brand for the campus.
