Cupertino Electric was the design/build electrical contractor for construction of Levi's Stadium, a new 1.8 million-square-foot NFL stadium for the San Francisco 49ers working for a joint venture of Turner and Devon Construction. In addition to designing and constructing Levi's Stadium's electrical systems, Cupertino Electric also designed and built complex tele/data and Distributed Antennae Systems (DAS), and installed a 375-kilowatt (kW) solar energy system.
Cupertino's in-house engineering and BIM teams oversaw and completed the stadium’s electrical design two months ahead of schedule and within the construction budget. Cupertino Electric also designed the stadium’s sports lighting power distribution and control system. In addition to meeting a fast-track schedule, our electrical engineering team completely designed the food service, lighting, branch power, and miscellaneous support systems required for the massive facility.
Cupertino Electric also installed a 375-kilowatt (kW) solar photovoltaic (PV) system on the “green roof” and pedestrian bridges of Levi’s Stadium. Cupertino Electric worked directly for NRG Energy and Sunora Energy Solutions to help make this NFL stadium one of the most sustainable stadiums built to date. The annual production of solar energy produced by the system can power an entire season of 49ers home games.
Levi’s Stadium officially opened in July 2014 and will host the 50th Super Bowl in 2016.
