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.
