Hidden overflow pool and spa in basement of new build house

Hidden overflow pool and spa with massage jetsA new build house in Hale, Greater Manchester required a luxury basement pool and spa to compliment a wellness suite. Working directly with the customer and liaising with their architect ensured Brookforge could design and build a hidden overflow pool and spa which fitted within the desired budget.

As this was a basement pool project we were onsite at the very early stage of construction when the excavations were first taking place. Detailed construction drawings were provided to ensure that the project set off on the right footing.

As this was a new build pool and spa in was important that it was highly insulated to comply with PART L guidance to ensure reasonable provisions were made to limit heat losses. An obvious choice of construction was to use an ICF system (insulated concrete form-work).

The Quadlock ICF system aloud for quick and easy construction for the swimming pool with integrated spa and a hidden overflow helped create a very tidy and contemporary finish. Read More…

Hidden slatted cover on bespoke spa

Hidden Slatted Cover On Round Spa ClosingThis large, bespoke, outdoor spa required a cover to keep in heat and keep out the debris. Due to the spa size and onsite storage problems a standard lift on cover was out of the question.

Brookforge pool builders where contacted to find a solution to this unique problem. Collaborating with a highly experienced spa cover manufacturer, the solution was to hide a fully automated hidden slatted cover in the base of the spa below a twin hatch door. The submersible in-roller motor was activated via a pool side remote control keeping it’s operation as simple as is possible

The thermal slatted cover was custom made to ensure it fitted tightly to the unique shape and top steps in the spa.
