This 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.

Hydrotherapy Spa Completion
A New Hydrotherapy Spa has been completed a school for children with disabilities and is now fully up and running.
This hydrotherapy spa was constructed using the Quadlock ICF system so the shell was highly insulated and kept heat losses are kept to a minimum.
As the Spa had a beach area with grill covered overflow, it required a balance tank which was an integral part of the shell construction.
The spas features include:
- Fully insulated spa structure.
- Four seats (for spa users and assistants when massage bed is in operation).
- A twin strip hydrotherapy air massage bed.
- Fully customisable underwater colour changing LED lights which will add to the sensory element.
- Overflow edge with associated with balance tank.
- Environmental control system with dehumidification, heat recovery, heating of both air and water.
The Hydrotherapy pool will be both stimulating and relaxing for all its users.
The Quad-Lock shell of the hydrotherapy spa pool is nearly complete
The Quad-Lock shell for both spa pool and balance tank is nearly complete. A twin wall of insulation provides a substantial reduction in heat loss. The balance tank and spa shell are a homogenous structure, the union of the two elements adds rigidity and strength to both. Read More…
Self Contained Plant Room
This recently completed self-contained plant room has been entirely built inside a standard 20 foot shipping container. The client in Nigeria required a commercially rated system with automatic chemical dosing amongst other automatic features. The plant room has been fully tested using a large tank of water to simulate the high volume turnover it was designed to handle. A video tutorial of how to operate and maintain the plant room was filmed inside the container and provided to the client. We will hopefully have an update in the coming months with the system fully installed in Nigeria. To discuss a similar option, or for anything else, please contact us here.
A perfect union of minimalism and grandeur. It is hard to believe that a commercially rated, fully insulated 18m swimming pool and separate spa are concealed within this subtle design. With the covers open, the space in front of the house is transformed into an area of tranquility and repose, a space in which to socialise, entertain and soak up the rural surroundings; admiring the design and craftsmanship of the property as a whole.
