Cliff side infinity pool
Brookforge pool engineers recently helped complete a swimming pool plant room installation for a cliff edge pool in Salcombe.
The pool was built and tiled by a local pool company and Brookforge took over to install all the pool shell fittings and install/test/commission the highly automated pool plant room.
Working directly for the owner; our engineer worked long hours with several late nights to get this highly automated swimming pool plant room up and running within 6 working days.
A swimming pool refurbishment has successfully completed just in time for the sun coming out this weekend. The existing outdoor pool overlooks a cotswold valley and required a complete refurbishment. The pool had fallen into a sorry state after nearly 40 years of use so needed stripping out for a complete refurbishment and bringing up to date with the latest plant room equipment.
The pool had previously been covered with a bubble solar cover but as part of the refurbishment they required a new automated hidden slatted cover system.
The structure of the existing pool shell had stood up to ther test of time but new structural calcs were required to add on a new ‘letterbox style’ cover pit; which was constucted behind the existing shallow end wall.
New Build Outdoor Pool Construction
Work has begun on a new build outdoor pool in the the Chilterns near High Wycombe. The swimming pool has been designed by liaising direct with the clients and the initial pool slab has been constructed by local contractors using the drawings and structural calks provided by Brookforge.
The reinforced concrete slab had a 5 days to cure before we could start on the construction of the pool walls at the start of this week. The initial pool shape was marked and had track for the walls cut to size. The Quadlock walls are then constructed in the track and the size and feel of the pool begins to take shape. Once the first course is complete the pool position, location and proportions are double checked and squared up. Now the pool location is finalized the pool wall vertical steal are drilled and anchored into the pool slab and the next courses can fly up within the space of 2 days. Read More…
A new design outdoor pool has been completed by our in house designers.
Working directly with the customers; our project manager has finalized the designs for this unique pool.
This bespoke swimming pool is ready to go from paper drawings to being constructed onsite over the next 3 weeks.
The pool will be constructed using the Quadlock insulated concrete formwork and will be carried out by our in house team of pool builders. The initial groundworks and pool slab has been completed by the customer’s landscaper by following the installation drawings provided by our designers and structural engineer. Read More…
A 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…
