Recently, McPhee Electric and Daktronics Corp of Brookings, South Dakota have partnered up again to construct and install one of their state-of-the-art LED displays. Their latest ‘score’ is the Fairfield University Convocation Center’s new center-hung video display to provide game scoring and statistics for both men’s and women’s basketball. Chris Lappen, McPhee’s Project Manager says, “various McPhee teams are currently engaged in the construction and assembly of the center-hung video display, assembling and wiring the self-climbing hoist and installing/terminating wiring for electrical and signaling connections at the roof.”
The grand opening of the new 85,000 square-foot, 3,500-seat Arena is set for November of 2022. “An additional 2’ tall LED ribbon display mounted on the fascia between the concourse & club levels will encircle the entire center and provide a continuous loop of advertising, scoring and encouragement for both players and fans,“ Chris concludes. For more than 15 years, Chris’ team has installed and serviced hundreds of LED scoreboards, highway traffic signs and electronic billboards across New England for Daktronics resulting in this strong partnership and continues today.
