Hill top swimming pool shell construction begins

The beauty of using Quadlock ICF for swimming pool shell construction is it’s very easy to get to site no matter how difficult the location. On-top of a rather large hill, on a slab constructed by groundwork’s team a week earlier, the basic pool shell flies up within a matter of days.

Culcheth Pool Commissioned

Working alongside the clients’ architect, a luxury new build swimming pool has been completed close to the city of Warrington.

The pool hall includes a fully insulated swimming pool, beautiful water features, steam room and sauna, all expertly constructed by Brookforge. In addition Brookforge installed a fully automated plant room and air handling systems to maintain the pool hall environment.

The pool benefitted from an automated slatted cover, water features and tiled with high-spec large format tiles. The final result is a stunning and elegant pool hall with the highest quality finish.

Stands the Test of Time…

A swimming pool which was completed back in 2014 still looks as impressive as the day it was first commissioned. The deck level overflow pool had a minor fault maintaining its water level, after closer inspection our engineers found a faulty solenoid on the besgo valve which maintains the balance tank levels. A quick fix for a stunning pool.

Concrete Day!

It’s the fifth day on the new pool build and we’re ready for concrete! The insulated concrete form-work we use for our swimming pool shells requires the concrete to be pumped in (via a concrete pump) in a loose liquid form.

Usually pumped via a long boom it means we can reach even the hardest to reach areas and can ensure consistency through the entire pour. Any air pockets are removed with vibration which happens throughout the pour with the use of hand held concrete pokers.

In a matter of a few hours the reinforced concrete pool shell is complete and will begin to cure over night. By the following morning (day 6) the concrete has cured enough that we can begin to remove the the bracing and in the subsequent days it will strengthen further. Read More…
