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.
A new build school overflow pool has been commissioned 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 plant-room 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
An 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.

Hydrotherapy Spa Completion
A New Hydrotherapy Spa has been completed a school for children with disabilities and is now fully up and running.
This hydrotherapy spa was constructed using the Quadlock ICF system so the shell was highly insulated and kept heat losses are kept to a minimum.
As the Spa had a beach area with grill covered overflow, it required a balance tank which was an integral part of the shell construction.
The spas features include:
- Fully insulated spa structure.
- Four seats (for spa users and assistants when massage bed is in operation).
- A twin strip hydrotherapy air massage bed.
- Fully customisable underwater colour changing LED lights which will add to the sensory element.
- Overflow edge with associated with balance tank.
- Environmental control system with dehumidification, heat recovery, heating of both air and water.
The Hydrotherapy pool will be both stimulating and relaxing for all its users.
A perfect union of minimalism and grandeur. It is hard to believe that a commercially rated, fully insulated 18m swimming pool and separate spa are concealed within this subtle design. With the covers open, the space in front of the house is transformed into an area of tranquility and repose, a space in which to socialise, entertain and soak up the rural surroundings; admiring the design and craftsmanship of the property as a whole.
