Otterbein University, The Rike Center Lighting Replacement

LocationWesterville, Ohio RoleDesign-Build Electrical Contractor Completion2022

Claypool Electric worked with Otterbein University to upgrade the lighting throughout The Rike Center. The domed-roof facility encloses an intercollegiate wood basketball floor with seating for 3,100 spectators; nets and space to segment three courts for volleyball, tennis, or basketball; and a tenth-mile oval track.


The project included the replacement of high-by lighting for the indoor game court and practice court. Claypool Electric provided in-house luminaire selection and modeling of the courts to confirm the prescribed illumination levels, including critical broadcasts minimums for the game court.

Claypool Electric also implemented new network wireless lighting controls for energy management, remote scheduling, and data tracking.
