    How the modern design and sustainable qualities of the Lumec SoleCity and Leonis luminaires compliments the LEED Silver-certified Rogers Place in Edmonton

    Edmonton has become more vibrant with the addition of the new Rogers Place home of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers, just north of downtown.

    The City of Edmonton and the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers commissioned HOK, in association with ATB and DIALOG, to design a new arena and oversee the master plan of an adjacent mixed-use district and plaza.


    The $480 million arena has become a symbol of the city's renewed commitment to urbanism.


    “The LEED Silver-certified Rogers Place uses 37 percent less water and 14 percent less energy than similar venues. The arena’s facade of pliable, unpainted stainless-steel cladding, provides a polished, dynamic backdrop to the city that seems to change in appearance with each passing hour.”


    Along with the sleek modern look of the arena, LED urban luminaires that emphasize sustainability were required. The Lumec SoleCity and Leonis luminaires by Signify were selected for their unique design and sustainable qualities.


    As you approach Rogers Place on 104th Avenue and along the multi-purpose entryway that runs from the arena gates, you will see how the clean lines of the Lumec SoleCity LED contemporary luminaires add to the modern identity of the space with it’s flawless signature style. They beautifully compliment the architectural design of the building.

    The SoleCity Collection is a comprehensive line of high efficiency, outdoor LED lighting solutions. For this project, some SoleCity Floodlights, were added to illuminate the surrounding area.


    These high-performance SoleCity outdoor LED lighting solutions are now available with new optional satin lens, so you can expect visual comfort while you enjoy a nighttime walk. The optional lens helps eliminate glare to increase visual comfort for an enhanced user experience in pedestrian applications.

    To provide a safe passage from Rogers Place to the LRT station, the path and public space are illuminated with SoleCity bollards. A few Leonis luminaires are also installed along the path.

    You’ll notice how the design of the Leonis is atypical. It doesn’t look like any other luminaire out there in the industry. Its futuristic design has a sophistication about it that is quite appealing.


    It is a well-designed product that transcends fashion. Launched in May 2008 the Leonis, was an avant-garde product. This LED outdoor lighting luminaire has a long life because its form is continuously appreciated and contributes to the beautification of many surroundings.


    The Leonis luminaires also light the path to the parking lot. They are as striking in the daytime as they are at night. Often, luminaires can go unnoticed but not this one. The Leonis stands out beautifully and adds to the uniqueness of the project.

    Rogers Place Leonis designed with sustainability and durability in mind

    When Lumec by Signify created the Leonis, they not only had beauty but also sustainability and durability in mind. The Leonis truly changed the way the game was played when it came to sustainability. This luminaire offers exceptional photometric performances, while casting no light up to help preserve the Dark Sky and you get unparalleled energy savings. Furthermore, because it is made in aluminum, the luminaire is 94% recyclable.


    Completed in 2016, Sport Management Magazine named Rogers Place as one of the best NHL arenas.
