Site excavation work has started on a new build basement swimming pool in London. The pool will be 20 meters in length and will have 2 depths with sloped riser between them. The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m.
The pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm freeboard to the surround floor tiles, it will also benefit from a remotely controlled hidden thermal slatted cover.
The pool hall will be built from scratch and will be located below an existing garden.
Working closely with the architects and mira construction, Brookforge will be designing, building, tanking, tiling and piping up everything pool related.
The plant room and all the associated equipment will be installed and tested by Brookforge as well as the pool hall air handling, dehumidification and ducting systems. Read More…
Hydrotherapy Spa Completion
A New Hydrotherapy Spa has been completed a school for children with disabilities and is now fully up and running.
This hydrotherapy spa was constructed using the Quadlock ICF system so the shell was highly insulated and kept heat losses are kept to a minimum.
As the Spa had a beach area with grill covered overflow, it required a balance tank which was an integral part of the shell construction.
The spas features include:
- Fully insulated spa structure.
- Four seats (for spa users and assistants when massage bed is in operation).
- A twin strip hydrotherapy air massage bed.
- Fully customisable underwater colour changing LED lights which will add to the sensory element.
- Overflow edge with associated with balance tank.
- Environmental control system with dehumidification, heat recovery, heating of both air and water.
The Hydrotherapy pool will be both stimulating and relaxing for all its users.
Edging tiles are fixed
The surround tiles have nearly been finished, with the pool tiles not far behind. Stainless steel skimmers with an automatic top-up have been installed. A chromed stainless steel faceplate will be installed after tiling is finished. To view the construction products used please follow this link.
The Quad-Lock shell of the hydrotherapy spa pool is nearly complete
The Quad-Lock shell for both spa pool and balance tank is nearly complete. A twin wall of insulation provides a substantial reduction in heat loss. The balance tank and spa shell are a homogenous structure, the union of the two elements adds rigidity and strength to both. Read More…
Mosaics are fixed to tanking
Tiling has begun at our local site, a refurbishment project to both house and modernise a dated, outdoor pool. The previous tiles have been removed, the shell has had its depth increased and has been tanked. The tile adhesive used is a rapid curing, water resistant product. More about the adhesive can be found here.
