E.B. Horsman Join Forces With Mac’s II Agencies for South Surrey Arena Transformation

January 26, 2024

In partnership with Mac’s II AgenciesO’M Engineering, Complete Power Systems and Cooper Lighting Solutions, E.B. Horsman & Son served as the distributor of products for the City of Surrey’s South Surrey Arena indoor lighting project.

Inaugurated in 1992, the South Surrey Arena stands as a cherished hub for minor hockey leagues, figure skaters, Junior A teams, and the local community. Nestled within the heart of the South Surrey Athletic Park, this arena, one of two Olympic-sized rinks in the Lower Mainland, embarked on a transformative journey. The 2023 Capital Upgrades project aims to enhance the arena’s sustainability, introducing a cutting-edge LED lighting system to illuminate its path into the future.

The E.B. Horsman & Son team collaborated closely with all parties, including Mac’s II Agencies, O’M Engineering, Complete Power Systems and Cooper Lighting Solutions to achieve an immersive lighting experience with a simple 1-to-1 swap of their existing fixtures to assemble a quality sports-grade lighting package.

Cooper Lighting Solutions: Ephesus sport lighting fixtures offer both skaters and spectators the chance to immerse themselves in an elevated game-day and events experience, turning every moment on the ice into a showstopping one.

Alongside delivering a spectacular dynamic light show, the project has also resulted in:

  • A significant reduction in the number of fixtures, dropping from 72 to a total of 42 Ephesus luminaires (a 58% reduction in fixtures).
  • Lower overall wattage consumption thanks to the adoption of upgraded energy-efficient LED lighting.
  • Reduced yearly maintenance requirements, leading to less lighting downtime and eliminating the need for lamp changeouts.

Scenes like ‘Paparazzi’ create a dazzling dance of lights, ‘Canada’ transforms the ice with Red, White, and Red hues, and ‘Score’ unleashes a cascade of colours reflecting the home team’s spirit. These carefully curated scenes set the perfect mood for any event hosted at the arena; whether it’s pre-set for convenience or manually adjusted for a personalized touch, the entire lighting system is seamlessly controlled with a digital interface, ensuring a smooth and dynamic experience at the push of a button.

This commitment to versatility and ease of use enhances the overall appeal and enjoyment for all patrons of the South Surrey Arena. The lighting upgrade at the South Surrey Arena remains a captivating investment, enthralling the City of Surrey and bringing delight to skaters, players, and spectators alike!
