Brooklyn Bowling Alley Shows Leadership In Energy And Design
Brooklyn Bowl is a LEED certified, multi-purpose entertainment venue located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Brooklyn Bowl is a LEED certified, multi-purpose entertainment venue located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The space combines a 16-lane bowling alley, 600-capacity performance venue, and a restaraunt all under one roof.
Its green design includes technical achievements such as running 100% on wind power and utilizing recycled materials such as truck tires (for the stage floor), reclaimed cork (for the Bowler’s lounge), custody controlled wood, in addition to eliminating the use of bottles and/or cans, as all drinks are on tap.
To further bolster its eco credentials and dedication to the environment the venue:
- Serves Brooklyn-brewed beers only
- Provides ample space for bikes
- Houses HVAC Johnson Controls (equipped with CO2 sensors)
- Has planted just over 15 trees in the vicinity.
Another noteworthy feature are their pinspotters for recoiling pins (shown in the video below), a contraption which cuts down energy use by 75% compared to the traditional pinspotter.
More and more LEED certified buildings have emerged in New York including The Brooklyn Children’s Museum, The Cooper Union, and now we have Brooklyn Bowl. It’s always great to see New York’s businesses and institutions take initiative in becoming pioneers for a greener tomorrow.
