A new build school overflow pool has been commisioned by Brookforge Poolbuild engineers. Working along side the council architects and builders, Brookforge helped with the design and build on this unique school pool. As well the design of the pool structure, we specified and installed all the plantroom equipment to meet with all safety standards applicable.
Brookforge’s role in constructing this school overflow pool
- Design the pool shell
- Pool Pipework Installation
- Supply and install all pool shell fittings
- Supply and install all plant room equipment and hydraulics
- Provide advice and assistance throughout
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.
