Work 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.
New build basement swimming pool wall construction with Quadlock
When the Quadlock insulated formwork and the asociated reinforcing steelwork are ready, concrete will pe pumped down into the basement through large core rubber hoses from road level concrete pump with extendable boom. Using this method of construction will save greatly on time and also ensure a regular consistancy of the concrete which will be brought to site remixed in a mixer wagon.
As the project progresses, we will be posting regular updates so you can follow the pool build project progress by clicking the project number: 14-591.
