Johnson Controls OpenBlue Healthy Buildings solutions are helping the Milwaukee Bucks reopen Fiserv Forum to fans for the first time in nearly a year.
System upgrades to the arena are leveraging state of the art innovations from OpenBlue Healthy Buildings solutions to allow a limited number of fans, starting with the Toronto Raptors game on Feb. 16. As a result, Fiserv Forum is better equipped to provide clean air through disinfection, improved ventilation and increased filtration.
“We are beyond excited to welcome back our great fans to Bucks games, even in a limited capacity,” said Bucks and Fiserv Forum President Peter Feigin. “Our fans have been deeply missed by the players, coaches and Bucks and arena staffs, and we are thrilled to open our doors once again. While we are still in the midst of a pandemic, and our lives are not back to normal, this is a positive step for the Bucks and the city.”
The upgrades include advanced temperature screening technology for Bucks and Fiserv Forum staff, allowing for touchless temperature checks and strict compliance management as staff enters the building.
Johnson Controls also powers advanced safety and security, critical operations and system uptime for the arena with its OpenBlue Healthy Buildings solutions.
The Milwaukee Health Department has approved Fiserv Forum hosting fans at 10 percent capacity, approximately 1,800 fans.
