A 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…
As part of a major refurbishment of a pre-existing Leisure Centre close to Swindon, Brookforge were asked to help design, build and install a brand new Wellness Suite.
Included in the Wellness Suite was a Spa, a Sauna and a Steam room with all the associated plant room equipment required to maintain a safe and healthy commercial environment.
Swimming pool balance tank & steps constructed using quadlock ICF.
By constructing the swimming pool balance tank using ICF, we ensure that the balance tank has the same level of insulation as the rest of the Pool shell.
Not only can we construct the swimming pool walls out of quad lock, we can also use the system to form custom swimming pool steps. By constructing the steps out of ICF it enables us to pass fittings through. Inlets, lights and massage jets can be added to make a feature out of the steps and a great place for bathers to sit and relax.
Work begins for the pool wall construction on a twin depth basement swimming pool in London. The walls are being constructed using the Quadlock Insulated Concrete Form-work (ICF) system and is being built on a reinforced slab installed by the existing site workers from Brookforge drawings.
The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m and the pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm free-board to the surround floor tiles.
