This project comprises of a large spa bath, uniquely shaped deck level pool and balance tanks for each. The pool will have an insulated slatted cover which will be hidden when closed. Colour changing LED lights will be used to light up the water. These are controllable and compatible with automation systems.
Insulation has been a priority throughout this project. The project location is fairly exposed and is predominantly in the shade. Insulation panels have been installed externally and Quad-lock panels forming the pool’s internal structure. The slab will also be insulated, as will the base in the spa. The purpose of this insulation is minimize heat loss through the structure, thus saving potentially thousands compared to an un-insulated pool. The insulated slatted cover will help to counteract heat loss through evaporation.
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…
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.
This Luxury high end indoor swimming pool in Alderley Edge was constructed in the basement of a new build house.
Brookforge worked along side the luxury developers Huntsmere Projects to achieve a modern contemporary finish.
It benefited from LED lights, stainless steel fittings throughout and an automatic slatted cover system which was hidden away in a cave at the far end of the pool, thus preventing heat loss when not in use.
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.
