Pool Structure Complete

Its the six day on site and the pool structure is complete. After a successful concrete pour the previous day the walls are solid and we can start to remove the bracing and shutter boards.

Whilst the braces are being removed suction and return pipework is installed back to the plant room before the block and beam floors are completed throughout the pool building.

This phase of the pool build is now complete, with the pool structure in place we will return to site once the pool building has been erected around the pool.

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…

Pool Balance Tank and Steps Constructed using ICF

Pool Balance Tank and steps using ICF
Swimming pool balance tank & steps constructed using quadlock ICF.

By constructing the swimming pool balance tank using ICF, we ensure that the balance tank has the same level of insulation as the rest of the Pool shell.

Not only can we construct the swimming pool walls out of quad lock, we can also use the system to form custom swimming pool steps. By constructing the steps out of ICF it enables us to pass fittings through. Inlets, lights and massage jets can be added to make a feature out of the steps and a great place for bathers to sit and relax.
