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.

London Basement Swimming Pool and Steam Room

London basement swimming pool and steam roomThis London basement swimming pool and steam room project was a luxury design & build project which was first planned way back at the end of 2013.

The project required a pool, a steam room, a fully automated plant room and pool hall air handling system which would maintain a pleasant environment in the basement of an existing property.

This project was in the very popular Downshire Hill area just off Hampstead Heath in London.

As with almost all London projects site access was an issue, working with James Taylor Construction ensured site safety had to be kept at a premium and the project has reached completion within specified time frames.

The finishes specified by the architects where to a very high standard, resulting in very unique and eye catching pool hall, swimming pool and steam room.

Concrete Poured, Moreton in Marsh

The swimming pool, balance tanks, spa and steps have been poured

Concrete Poured Successfully

This project comprises of a large spa bath, uniquely shaped deck level pool and balance tanks for each. The pool will have an insulated slatted cover which will be hidden when closed. Colour changing LED lights will be used to light up the water. These are controllable and compatible with automation systems.

Insulation

Insulation has been a priority throughout this project. The project location is fairly exposed and is predominantly in the shade. Insulation panels have been installed externally and Quad-lock panels forming the pool’s internal structure. The slab will also be insulated, as will the base in the spa. The purpose of this insulation is minimise heat loss through the structure, thus saving potentially thousands compared to an uninsulated pool. The insulated slatted cover will help to counteract heat loss through evaporation.

New Forest: Concrete Pour

Pouring concrete to form a lid over the balance tanks and cover pit

Today we have successfully poured 52 cubic metres of concrete to form the walls, balance tanks and cover lid. As this post goes live, the concrete is curing; resisting the low temperatures with double sided insulation. This stage is a key development within the project and could not be achieved so quickly with alternative pool construction methods.

Completion: Luxury Deck Level Pool and Spa

Luxury insulated overflow pool with custom slatted cover save huge amounts of energy

A perfect union of minimalism and grandeur. It is hard to believe that a commercially rated, fully insulated 18m swimming pool and separate spa are concealed within this subtle design. With the covers open, the space in front of the house is transformed into an area of tranquility and repose, a space in which to socialise, entertain and soak up the rural surroundings; admiring the design and craftsmanship of the property as a whole.
