Marquette University Shines Sternberg Green LED lighting

The pedestrian lighting that accentuates the Marquette University campus has always featured a classic look.  While the decorative fixtures enhanced the character of the university, they weren’t particularly energy efficient. However, the university has now combined traditional aesthetics with today’s cutting edge energy-saving technology.

Marquette University recently installed 59 RiponLED fixtures made by Sternberg Lighting around both the new Law School and College of Engineering.  These outdoor LED lighting fixtures have the same classic look as the other Ripon fixtures across the campus, but consume nearly 50 percent less energy than the fixtures that utilize old-school metal halide lamps.

“We kept the aesthetic because we had invested in (this look) for 15 years, and they are one of the features that helps give the campus identity,” said University Architect Tom Ganey.
