Spooky Nook Sports and the Warehouse Hotel are housed in a repurposed industrial warehouse. In keeping with the spirit of that restoration, we recycled and reused materials from the original warehouse throughout our facility right down to the cement in the driveway. We have incorporated state-of-the-art green practices such as geothermal heating and rainwater recycling to make the site as environmentally friendly as possible. The result is a green facility truly unlike any other you’ll visit. Image credit: Chris Kirkwood Photography
The Nook & Warehouse Hotel installed 48 geothermal wells for heating and cooling. Geothermal energy systems rely the earth’s natural energy by circulating water from a heat pump inside the building through piping to the bottom of the wells. These systems produce virtually no greenhouse gases reducing the facility’s carbon footprint that can affect our climate and wildlife.
The Nook and Warehouse Hotel collect rain water off of part of our roof. The facility collects enough water to fill 4,122 Olympic-sized swimming pools! Water conservation is important for future generations, protect our natural eco-system, saves energy, and more. Water equals life which is how we live on mother Earth.
All of the 135 guest rooms in the Warehouse Hotel have key-activated lights and heating/cooling. When guests leave their room and remove their key from the system, the lights and air instantly turn off saving energy. Not only does this save costs for our facility, but it reduces the carbon footprint of each person by .15 pounds per hour which adds up after 135 guest rooms per day!
If a Warehouse Hotel guest is staying longer than one night, we give them the option of having their bed linens laundered to conserve water. Bed linens are changed every third day if they opt out. Not only can this practice save water but, reduce the amount of detergent being used. Detergents can run off into bodies of water causing harm to aquatic life.
In the Warehouse Hotel and Forklift & Palate Restaurant, we reuse pallets from deliveries in the wall décor and bar siding, cable spools are turned into tables, and original warehouse beams in guest rooms. By recycling cable spools and pallets, it helps to reduce levels of deforestation, create a cleaner environment, and reduce in soil erosion.
With many deliveries at The Nook each day, we make a conscious effort to recycle cardboard, bottles, paper, and other recyclables among our staff and customers. By saving one ton of cardboard saves over 9 cubic yards of landfill space, 700 gallons of water, and 46 gallons of oil.
