Bucks name Johnson Controls ‘smart building’ partner for new arena

31 March 2017

The Milwaukee Bucks announced a partnership with Johnson Controls on Thursday, making the Milwaukee-based company the official “smart building” partner for the team’s new arena.

Dubbed a “Founding Partner,” the Bucks announced that Johnson will provide improvements to the building’s performance in an effort to lower its environmental footprint.

“Together we’re going to build an incredible arena and an incredible future for our home city,” Bucks president Peter Feigin said in a statement.

The Bucks broke ground on the $500 million facility last summer, and are set to move into their new home in time for the 2018-19 season.
