Finished Infinity Swimming Pool

Mirrored infinity swimming poolAn infinity swimming pool in the stunning surroundings of the Chilterns, an area of natural beauty, has been completed.

This infinity swimming pool is positioned on a hillside overlooking the valley below with uninterrupted views of rolling countryside.

Brookforge worked alongside the local landscapers to construct this impressive 19m x 4.5m infinity pool which is to be used all year round. The pool benefits from an automatic thermal slatted cover which helps minimise heat loses when the pool is not in use.

Hidden overflow pool and spa in basement of new build house

Hidden overflow pool and spa with massage jetsA new build house in Hale, Greater Manchester required a luxury basement pool and spa to compliment a wellness suite. Working directly with the customer and liaising with their architect ensured Brookforge could design and build a hidden overflow pool and spa which fitted within the desired budget.

As this was a basement pool project we were onsite at the very early stage of construction when the excavations were first taking place. Detailed construction drawings were provided to ensure that the project set off on the right footing.

As this was a new build pool and spa in was important that it was highly insulated to comply with PART L guidance to ensure reasonable provisions were made to limit heat losses. An obvious choice of construction was to use an ICF system (insulated concrete formwork).

The Quadlock ICF system aloud for quick and easy construction for the swimming pool with integrated spa and a hidden overflow helped create a very tidy and contemporary finish. Read More…

New build swimming pool with metal overflow

New Build Swimming Pool With Metal Overflow Grating PoolA new build swimming pool constructed near Romsey. The overflow swimming pool was built using the quadlock ICF system. Using insulated concrete formwork (ICF) ensures that the pool is highly insulated and structurally solid.

The new build swimming pool benefited from luxury stainless steel parallel grating tiles , the grating tiles are designed to be extra wide ensure the pool surround area is kept dry. The balance tank was directly below the overflow and the water entered the tank via shoot to minimise any unwanted water noises.

To ensure the balance tank was hard wearing, easy to maintain and water tight it was fibre glassed onsite.

Swimming pool wall bracing.

Pool wall bracingThis is the third update for the underground basement swimming pool which is being constructed in Wimbledon, London. The quadlock swimming pool wall have now been finished with all the associated reinforcing steelwork secured.

Once the Quad lock ICF wall has been has been constructed, aluminum strong backs are fixed to the wall and then braced to the pool slab. This is to ensure there is no movement when the concrete is poured into the wall cavity.

All the pool shell fittings, associated pipe runs and wall conduits are also installed at this time. Skimmer boxes, low level suctions, vacuum points and underwater lights are easily mounted in the quadlock wall using a hot wire gun and core drills.

At the shallow end of the pool a shuttered cave lid is built and braced to house the automatic slatted pool cover which will be hidden behind a false wall.

Pool wall construction begins in London basement pool

Pool Hall WallWork begins for the pool wall construction on a twin depth basement swimming pool in London. The walls are being constructed using the Quadlock Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF) system and is being built on a reinforced slab installed by the existing site workers from Brookforge drawings.

The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m and the pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm freeboard to the surround floor tiles.
