Hidden overflow pool and spa in basement of new build house

Hidden overflow pool and spa with massage jetsA new build house in Hale, Greater Manchester required a luxury basement pool and spa to compliment a wellness suite. Working directly with the customer and liaising with their architect ensured Brookforge could design and build a hidden overflow pool and spa which fitted within the desired budget.

As this was a basement pool project we were onsite at the very early stage of construction when the excavations were first taking place. Detailed construction drawings were provided to ensure that the project set off on the right footing.

As this was a new build pool and spa in was important that it was highly insulated to comply with PART L guidance to ensure reasonable provisions were made to limit heat losses. An obvious choice of construction was to use an ICF system (insulated concrete form-work).

The Quadlock ICF system aloud for quick and easy construction for the swimming pool with integrated spa and a hidden overflow helped create a very tidy and contemporary finish. Read More…

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.

A recently completed project in Worcestershire was a new build fully insulated deck level pool. It benefited from the latest energy saving technology in the automated plant-room and a remote controlled slatted thermal pool cover which is hidden away in the floor of the pool.

Working directly with the Architect from first conception meant that everything pool related could be taken into account during the pool hall design.

The final result is a contemporary and stylish pool that blend modernity with functionality.

Slatted thermal pool cover benefits

The benefits of a slatted thermal pool cover should not be underestimated; not only will it keep your pool water warm whilst you are not using it thus saving on the running costs. They also prevent water evaporation, meaning your dehumidification system will have less work to do keeping the pool hall humidity stable and thus protecting the fabric of your pool hall.

Commissioning Outdoor Overflow Pool

Outdoor overflow swimming pool

Testing Hidden Slatted CoverLuxury Slot Overflow PoolAn outdoor overflow pool is in the final stages of commissioning with the testing and calibrating of its thermal slatted cover.

Down on the south coast of England this pool was designed to be built using the Quadlock ICF system. Using an ICF system means the pool is highly insulated and the addition of a thermal slatted cover keeps heat losses to the minimum.

The features of this Outdoor Overflow Pool

This pool benefited from a hidden slotted overflow system, where an overflow channel is fitted below a 30mm slot between the coping and surround tile. The tiles are supported on a stainless steel mesh preventing larger debris from entering the overflow system. The overflow water is channeled back to a balance tank which is then pumped back to the plantroom via a multi-cyclone pre-filter to remove any smaller yet visible debris. As the outdoor overflow pool is highly insulated on the floor and walls, a thermal slatted cover was installed within a hidden cave in the pool wall.
