Work has begun on an insulated swimming pool build at a private residence close to Warrington. The indoor pool will be 11m x 5m when complete and will feature an automated slatted cover which will be housed behind a hidden wall.
The pool will include LED under water lighting and pool side water feature fountains which will cascade into the pool when required. The pool structure will be completed before the pool building is constructed around the pool, this makes it easy for us to access all areas of the pool and will really speed up its construction.

New Build Outdoor Pool Construction
Work has begun on a new build outdoor pool in the the Chilterns near High Wycombe. The swimming pool has been designed by liaising direct with the clients and the initial pool slab has been constructed by local contractors using the drawings and structural calks provided by Brookforge.
The reinforced concrete slab had a 5 days to cure before we could start on the construction of the pool walls at the start of this week. The initial pool shape was marked and had track for the walls cut to size. The Quadlock walls are then constructed in the track and the size and feel of the pool begins to take shape. Once the first course is complete the pool position, location and proportions are double checked and squared up. Now the pool location is finalized the pool wall vertical steal are drilled and anchored into the pool slab and the next courses can fly up within the space of 2 days. Read More…
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.
Gold Flake Tiles
Glass Steam Room
Final position is set, construction can begin
New Deck Level Pool Project
The pool will be ‘deck level’, meaning the water will be the same height as the floor in the new building. A slot between the tiles around the perimeter will receive overflowing water.
The pool features an insulated slatted cover, which is housed in a pit at one end of the pool. The cover is on a motorized reel, and can be controlled by a wireless remote.
The level of the water automatically rises and falls depending on cover position; when open, the water level rises until overflowing. When the cover is closed, the water level drops to minimize evaporation which occurs when in an overflowing state. Read More…
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.
