Demolition Begins At Altoona’s Mansion Park

I&Y Construction began demolition Monday morning at the Altoona Area School District’s Mansion Park.  As part of the much-anticipated upgraded sports lighting project, I&Y Construction is taking down the six existing well-worn poles.  The school district estimated the steel poles to be at least 70 years old and the light fixtures to be 30 years old.

In the coming weeks, I&Y Construction will remove the poles, drill for the new precast-bases and set in place six new 100’ sports lighting poles.

The Altoona Area School District chose Musco’s proposed six pole TLC for LED™ sports lighting design to maximize the on-field lighting while minimizing light pollution on the neighboring homes.  In addition to lighting the track and football fields, lights are also being integrated to cover the adjacent practice field.  I&Y Construction is also installing Musco’s Show-Light™ package to take the fan experience to the next level with an epic kaleidoscope of colored light shows.

Mansion Park has been a source of community pride and regularly serves as the site for a variety of events in the Altoona area.  It hosts over 60 events during a typical fall season including the district play-offs for various sports.

I&Y Construction is always honored to be a part of these projects. It is exciting to elevate our local school districts facilities to a new playing level.  The state of the art technology is not only for the benefit of the athletes, but also for the fans, the communities, and their families.

I&Y Construction has installed over 350 Sports Field Lighting projects in the Mid- Atlantic Region and has become the #1 trusted Musco lighting installer in the region.  I&Y Construction prides itself on the quality and efficiency of service, as well as our experience, reliability, and knowledge of installing sports lighting.
