Concrete Pour Successful
The pool shell is cast in a single pour, a homogeneous structure is far stronger than a traditional concrete block construction.
The difference in level is to accommodate a cover which is hidden in a ‘pit’. The cover is an insulated slatted design, and features an automatic system which can be controlled wirelessly.
Quad-Lock ICF System
As the Quad-Lock panels act as shuttering for the pour, the result is clean without the wastage of ply shuttering. Quad-Lock is a modular system, which enables quick construction of insulated structures. Brookforge have adapted this system for use with swimming pool construction.
7m high ICF wall being constructed
Basement Level Pool Shell Construction
The pool structure comprises three walls at 1.4m, with the fourth wall at full ceiling height; supporting the concrete floor above.
The cover will be housed in a ‘cave’ formed by a cantilever lid. This lid is tied in and cast with the walls.
The pool features two stainless steel skimmers with an automatic top up to ensure the water level remains the same. Read More…
Stainless steel mesh is fixed to all internal faces to allow rendering. The slab is insulated prior to screeding.
Reinforced concrete slab designed to withstand the force of a large volume of water. The following day, construction of the pool shell can begin. It doesn’t take long before the shape of the final product emerges.
The Romsey project is making good progress. The starter bars have been fixed to the slab, and the construction of the pool and balance tanks walls has begun using the Quad-Lock system.
