Case Study Dunkin Donuts Center

Dunkin Donuts Center Case Study:

Company Background

Located in the heart of Providence, The Dunkin’ Donuts Center is New England’s premier events arena managed by SMG.

Home to the AHL Providence Bruins and the Big East Providence College Friars, it is host to various sporting events, major concerts, family shows, and trade shows.

With 31,000 square feet, the floor can be set up to accommodate center stage shows, table seating, ice, dirt, basketball, and event trade show booths.


Project Details

The arena at the Dunkin Donuts center consisted of several hundred 1500W Dimmable Metal Halide fixtures suspended over 50’ above the ice.

Energy Source installed new LED fixtures that were controlled with a wireless software based control system which allows for remote dimming and light level adjustment of the system. This control system enables the Dunkin Donuts Center to schedule various light levels depending on the task in the space.

During Bruins games, the light levels are set at 100%, during practice times and other events light levels are reduced to drive more savings to the bottom line.

Because the system is PC based, it is also capable of being controlled via an Iphone or Android based mobile device. Remote monitoring and alarms are utilized as a way to ensure that the lighting system is working as designed at all times.

In addition to the rink lighting, we also installed LED exterior lights and LED common area lighting. As a result of the reduction in heat load associated with the removed MH fixtures, we were able to increase the cooling loop by 6 degrees which yielded even more savings to the customer.
