Insulated Swimming Pool Build

Insulated swimming pool build drawingWork has begun on an insulated swimming pool build at a private residence close to Warrington. The indoor pool will be 11m x 5m when complete and will feature an automated slatted cover which will be housed behind a hidden wall.

The pool will include LED under water lighting and pool side water feature fountains which will cascade into the pool when required. The pool structure will be completed before the pool building is constructed around the pool, this makes it easy for us to access all areas of the pool and will really speed up its construction.

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…

New build swimming pool with metal overflow

New Build Swimming Pool With Metal Overflow Grating PoolA new build swimming pool constructed near Romsey. The overflow swimming pool was built using the quadlock ICF system. Using insulated concrete form-work (ICF) ensures that the pool is highly insulated and structurally solid.

The new build swimming pool benefited from luxury stainless steel parallel grating tiles , the grating tiles are designed to be extra wide ensure the pool surround area is kept dry. The balance tank was directly below the overflow and the water entered the tank via shoot to minimize any unwanted water noises.

To ensure the balance tank was hard wearing, easy to maintain and water tight it was fiber glassed onsite.

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.
