Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California
Advanced building technology for one of the smartest sports arenas in the world
Challenge
In 2014 the National Basketball Association’s Sacramento Kings set out to design a 100 percent solar-powered, 17,500-seat venue as the world’s smartest arena, taking advantage of the latest in advanced building technology to achieve their sustainability goals.
Solution

The owners chose Johnson Controls, the most experienced building wide systems integration expert in the industry, to create a world-class entertainment and sports venue that is operationally smarter, safer and more sustainable.

Using the Metasys® building automation system, the owners were able to connect HVAC equipment as well as security and fire protection on an integrated platform. Metasys® provides essential instrumentation and control to help save energy, increase productivity and enhance occupant comfort and security.

Golden 1 Center hosts world-class concerts, family and live action shows along with NBA games and other sporting events. Arena leadership realized it was critical that the building automation system keep occupants comfortable and safe no matter how the facility was used. It also had to operate efficiently to meet the owners’ goals to remain grid-neutral. The automation of data collection through Metasys® was the solution, enabling support for the development of fan-facing dashboards and interaction used for future planning.
Results

Golden 1 Center’s design is driving toward LEED Gold certification, and the Sacramento Kings are ensuring their investment in advanced building technology pays off through a planned service agreement. Johnson Controls will maintain a service presence at the arena to help confirm the systems are optimized to meet comfort, safety and sustainability goals throughout the lifecycle of the facility.
