As part of the University’s Energy Conservation Measures program (ECM) the Utilities Department has undertaken a project to relight the Golden Dome and the statue of the Virgin Mother, Mary. The project improves the illumination intensity, quality, and uniformity of the Dome to better display this prominent landmark and icon of the University in the night sky. State-of-the-art LED light sources obtain optimal light efficiency and reduced energy consumption.
Having collaborated previously with Musco Lighting on numerous other well-known venues on campus including: the Word of Life mural, the Purcell Pavilion, the Compton Family Ice Arena and the Notre Dame Stadium, the Utilities Department and Musco have again partnered to light the Dome.
