22m Outdoor Pool
Brookforge were commissioned to provide designs for the complete refurbishment of a 22m outdoor concrete pool in the Cotswold’s.
Working with the Client’s appointed building company, Brookforge provided design, consultancy and engineering services, re-piping and supplying new swimming pool equipment in the plant room.
Previously the swimming pool relied on a manual reel type thermal cover – Brookforge gave full structural designs for the construction and supply of a fully automatic slatted cover, built on to the end of the existing pool wall, in a “letter-box” type flooded pit.
We installed a Besgo automatic backwash valve to save space, water and reduced weekly maintenance requirements. We also advised on and supplied high quality mosaic pool tiles.
Insulated Indoor Overflow Pool
Working directly with the end user and their construction team, Brookforge designed, installed and commissioned this indoor overflow pool.
The pool was constructed using our Quadlock Pool ICF shuttering system and benefited from a very subtle slot overflow channel hidden beneath the copings and surround tile.
The Quadlock Pool system enabled one wall of the pool hall to be built directly on top of the pool wall, maximizing pool surround space elsewhere in the swimming pool building.
The pool featured semi-circular entry steps and submerged bench seating running along the full length of the pool.
The swimming pool and its overflow channel, plus the balance tank were waterproofed with Brookforge’s unique spray applied, flexible tanking membrane.
All the pool shell fittings were made in polished stainless steel and a high flow-rate counter current unit was installed in the deep end wall.
As the pool hall had large amounts of glass windows it was critical that a correctly sized, fully ducted Heatstar air handling unit was installed to ensure that the humidity, air temperature and water temperature were kept at the optimum levels.
