A new build fully insulated outdoor swimming pool installed in the cotswolds.
Built using the Quadlock Insulating Concrete Formwork (ICF) pool shell, insulated on both internal and external faces of all walls.
The pool benefitted from:
- Fully insulated pool floor, walls and piperuns
- Automatic remote control insulated slatted cover
- Colour changing fibre optic lights
- High spec stainless steel shell fittings
- Counter current swim jet unit
- Twin hydrotherpay water jets
With a beautiful Cotswold view, this pool was to provide a safe swimming environment for a family whilst maintaining the classic design features of a Roman bath. Hand crafted Portland stone was used throughout the pool and surround.
The most technically challenging part of the project was the design of the cantilevered support system for the slatted pool cover’s concealed reel due to the weight of the 90mm thick stone.
The client specification was to create a black-tiled reflecting pool with water cascade. The client has small children who will use the pool as a splash pool in the Summer. It was, therefore, imperative that the circulation, filtration and sanitisation system maintained safe levels of water purity.
- Design & Consultancy: pool shell, filtration, disinfection & plant room equipment
- Supply of all all pool specialist equipment.
The project involved the creation of a commercial grade pool for private hire use. The client will be building holiday chalets adjacent to the pool buildings later this year so the pool will have high bather loads.
Brookforge worked with the client (who was also the main contractor) and an initial pool design to provide technical backup and installation assistance.
With the client currently using oil within farm buildings as a primary heating fuel, Brookforge specified and supplied the lowest running costs solution for heating and dehumidification using ASHP technology – the Heatstar Gemini climate control unit.
Brookforge installed the plant room equipment and supplied specialist materials eg. Pool grating and pool edge tiles.
With the lack of available land and tight planning regulations above ground, the answer in many cases is to go underground. The client partnered with a property developer to extend his own development property underground.
Without the necessary experience in pool design & build, the client turned to Brookforge for pool design and off site consultancy services. Brookforge designed the pool shell, provided stainless steel swimming pool hydraulic fittings and LED lights and specified and supplied a Heatstar climate control unit and specified the plant room equipment required.
