OARDC Exterior Campus Lighting
Wooster, Ohio


The project consists of the replacement of all existing exterior pole mounted lighting on the OARDC campus.  The project also expands exterior campus lighting to areas that are currently insufficiently illuminated or not illuminated at all.  A lighting study for the campus was completed by Monks Engineers to develop a Program of Requirements which set a new standard for OARDC campus lighting and the direction of this project’s design. Considerations made during the design included aesthetics, light distribution levels, energy and operating efficiency, campus security needs, and expansion of lighting to dimly lit areas. The aesthetic element of the design was carefully considered by the entire design team to integrate modern, efficient lighting in this historical campus setting. Our services included a rendering of the selected fixtures modeled at selected site locations at their proposed mounting heights for the university’s review.
