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.

School overflow pool commissioned

School Overflow PoolA 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

Spray Tanking Swimming Pool Shell

 

Spray Tanking Swimming Pool ShellSpray tanking swimming pool shells ensures a perfect water tight swimming pool. The specialist tanking system is applied over several days and given several coats with each coat being fully dried before the next is applied. All fittings, conduits and overflows have tanking overlaps which prevent water ingress into the pool wall. Once the tanking is finished, it will have a smooth, flexible and slightly tacky finish which can then be tiled directly onto. Typically 2 – 3 coats are sprayed, depending on site conditions and external hydro-static pressure.

If tanking is not used then you are guaranteed to have problems in  the future, we get many refurbishment requests which have been the result of water ingress caused by poor or no tanking.

New Deck Level Pool Project, Pershore

Insulated concrete formwork in construction

Final position is set, construction can begin

New Deck Level Pool Project

The pool will be ‘deck level’, meaning the water will be the same height as the floor in the new building. A slot between the tiles around the perimeter will receive overflowing water.

The pool features an insulated slatted cover, which is housed in a pit at one end of the pool. The cover is on a motorized reel, and can be controlled by a wireless remote.

The level of the water automatically rises and falls depending on cover position; when open, the water level rises until  overflowing. When the cover is closed, the water level drops to minimize evaporation which occurs when in an overflowing state. Read More…

Pool Shell Construction & Concrete Pour

7m high ICF Pool Shell Construction

7m high ICF wall being constructed

Basement Level Pool Shell Construction

The pool structure comprises three walls at 1.4m, with the fourth wall at full ceiling height; supporting the concrete floor above.

The cover will be housed in a ‘cave’ formed by a cantilever lid. This lid is tied in and cast with the walls.

The pool features two stainless steel skimmers with an automatic top up to ensure the water level remains the same. Read More…
