Works on this basement pool were started by a local swimming pool company. Brookforge were appointed to to take over the pool works.
Brookforge worked with the completed bare pool shell. We explained all the aesthetic options to the client. High spec options were chosen: Stainless steel shell fittings, a Covrex automatic slatted cover, fibre optic lighting, energy saving Pentair Intelliflo pumps, Besgo automatic backwash valves, ozone water treatment and automatic chlorine and pH dosing.
Brookforge can offer expert assistance and can take over partially completed projects where, for whatever reason a change of pool contractor is required.
A seamless design which hides the unsightly elements of a swimming pool
We have successfully completed another luxury insulated pool, with a slotted overflow channel and fibre optic water jets to name a few features. A separate spa is built in behind the pool with seating, which houses the pool’s automatic slatted cover. This contemporary design makes use of the same pattern of ceramic tile for both the pool and the surround, to give a sense of continuity. The height of the water is at floor level, removing any visual obstacles between the user and the water, this feature lends itself towards a very inviting atmosphere. Read More…
Working along side high-end developers Huntsmere Projects, Brookforge were asked to design and specify a luxury swimming pool as part of a large contemporary development in Prestbury.
Huntsmere Projects required a detailed technical specification which Brookforge engineered to the highest standard enabling Huntsmere Projects to achieve their goals.
The pool was a shuttered reinforced concrete construction, which included a cave recessed in one wall for an automatic slatted cover. Colour changing LED’s were installed to provide the customer the opportunity to adjust the lighting to suit their moods. The pool shell fittings were constructed in polished stainless steel.
Working directly with the end user and their construction team, Brookforge designed, installed and commissioned this indoor overflow pool.
The pool was constructed using our Quadlock Pool ICF shuttering system and benefitted from a very subtle slot overflow channel hidden beneath the copings and surround tile.
The QuadlockPool system enabled one wall of the pool hall to be built directly on top of the pool wall, maximising pool surround space elswhere in the swimming pool building.
The pool featured semi-circular entry steps and submerged bench seating running along the full length of the pool.
The swimming pool and its overflow channel, plus the balance tank were waterproofed with Brookforge’s unique spray applied, flexible tanking membrane.
All the pool shell fittings were made in polished stainless steel and a high flowrate counter current unit was installed in the deep end wall.
As the pool hall had large amounts of glass windows it was critical that a correctly sized, fully ducted Heatstar air handling unit was installed to ensure that the humidity, air temperature and water temperature were kept at the optimum levels.
One of the more interesting projects that Brookforge has taken on recently was a Submarine Testing Tank. The tank is over 6m deep and contains over 700 cubic metres of water.
As the tank is for testing new pieces of under water equipment, provisions had to be taken for the possibility of oil leaks within the pool. Brookforge developed a sluice system using custom made skimmers that would remove the top layer of water quickly with minimal wastage. Read More…
