Oldcastle Precast was contracted to supply an additional turnkey submersible wastewater pump station to handle the additional wastewater capacity required for Spooky Nook Sports’ new 130-room hotel and 260-seat restaurant in East Hempfield Township, Pennsylvania.

The new Spooky Nook Sports “Warehouse Hotel”, owned by Sam Beiler, was built in the old Armstrong World Industries distribution center and houses the new rooms in what was previously a warehouse for ceiling and floor tile. The hotel takes aesthetic advantage of the building's steel beams and incorporates geothermal heating, cooling, and reuse of building materials.

Oldcastle Precast provided its OneLift RC611 pump station, with a 25-foot depth and storage capacity of 468 gallons per vertical foot, to accommodate the hotel expansion requirements of needing to maximize holding capacity in a small area of land next to the hotel portion of the complex. The small footprint provided by Oldcastle Precast’s OneLift pump station and the ability to provide the required working volume and emergency storage was just the solution in the small space available. 

The OneLift pump station was designed with an integral valve vault built into the unused top portion of the wet well, yielding a single-structure product, that solves the problems of differential settlement found with the conventional two-structure systems. In addition, the single-structure design, preassembled pump station significantly reduces the product footprint for sites such as Spooky Nook Sports with tight area restrictions.

The manufacturing schedule of the OneLift pump station was also a benefit to Ashlin Woods, the general contractor. The standard design and stock castings allowed Oldcastle Precast to deliver the pump station six weeks after release for production. 

This was the second pump station installed at Spooky Nook Sports Complex. The owner wanted consistency at the sports complex and liked the high quality and benefits of the OneLift pump station. The first was installed during the initial construction of the sports complex in 2013, to service the needs of wastewater transfer for some of the indoor complex and the outside soccer and field hockey rest rooms.
