WB Design & Build were carrying out a full refurbishment of an old rectory in Wiltshire and asked Brookforge to design a 15m x 5m outdoor pool. We provided a complete pool and plantroom design along with supply and installation of the specialist equipment such as the Covrex Slatted Automatic cover and the Pentair Intellipool dosing and remote monitoring system.
An ambitious swim school project was to diversify an existing dairy farm and branch out with a new business. The concept was to answer the call for more swimming pools available to the general public in rural areas.
The Parlour Pool is a new indoor swimming pool serving the local community around Chipping Sodbury in South Gloucestershire. The pool was designed to be used for swimming lessons and is available for hire to groups of 2-6 people. Located in a private setting on a working dairy farm; the Parlour Pool offers something different for local people looking for somewhere quiet to swim.
With the help of a Rural Development grant the original derelict farm buildings were demolished to make way for the Parlour Pool.
Because the swim school pool is available for private hire to the general public; the correct water treatment and air handling was essential to maintain the fabric of the building and most importantly provide a comfortable environment for bathers.
The entire swim school project has been documented in a really funny and interesting blog from the brains behind the project and can be found here: Parlour Pool Blog

The beach side pool has spectacular views across pool harbor and was part of a new build luxury development in Sand Banks.
The Infinity pool also benefited from a Binder Water turbine which creates a wide natural river current to swim against with out any associated splashing.
To maintain the water temperature over night the pool has an automated motorized slatted cover which appears from behind a false wall along the pool steps. The water circulation is controlled via Besgo valves to ensure that when the slatted cover was closed the water stops overflowing the infinity edge and prevent further heat losses.
