Pouring concrete to form a lid over the balance tanks and cover pit
Today we have successfully poured 52 cubic metres of concrete to form the walls, balance tanks and cover lid. As this post goes live, the concrete is curing; resisting the low temperatures with double sided insulation. This stage is a key development within the project and could not be achieved so quickly with alternative pool construction methods.
Quad-Lock is one of the more adaptable ICF systems, which enables alterations in the design to accommodate features such as steps, overflow channels, cover pits and balance tanks. To find out more about hidden cover options see here for further details. For any questions regarding ICF construction please get in touch here.

By ensuring that we fix the starter bars in ourselves, we can ensure that they do not dictate where the Quad-Lock walls are set.
The majority of the Quad-Lock structure has been completed, along with reinforcement steels. The remainder of structure will be completed shortly and prepared for concrete pouring. The top of the Quad-Lock walls are cut to laser level ensuring that any inaccuracies in the slab are overcome before the finished floor level.

A new insulated outdoor pool project in Hampshire, using the Quad-Lock ICF (Insulating Concrete Formwork) system.
Brookforge have pioneered the use of Quad-Lock in swimming pool construction and with Quad-Lock being so flexible, it is our ICF of choice. To read more about the Quad-Lock system read here.
Setting out is a critical stage of the project whereby accuracy is key. Once the reinforcement starter bars are anchored in, the rest of the construction can be completed extremely quickly.
