New build basement swimming pool

Digging a basement pool hallSite excavation work has started on a new build basement swimming pool in London. The pool will be 20 meters in length and will have 2 depths with sloped riser between them. The shallow water depth is 1.3m going down to a deep end water depth of 2m.

The pool will be a skimmer pool with a 150mm free-board to the surround floor tiles, it will also benefit from a remotely controlled hidden thermal slatted cover.

The pool hall will be built from scratch and will be located below an existing garden.

Working closely with the architects and mira construction, Brookforge will be designing, building, tanking, tiling and piping up everything pool related.

The plant room and all the associated equipment will be installed and tested by Brookforge as well as the pool hall air handling, dehumidification and ducting systems. Read More…
