This pool was taking too much space and was stuck in the past. The pool shape was changed, the pool completely renovated in a modern slimline style & colours.

This swimming pool used to be an outdoor pool built in 1970's, one of the original owners had extended the house & constructed a room around the swimming pool, essentially making it a part of the home in order to be able to use the pool all year.
The house was bought and the new home owners decided it was time to renovate the house and the swimming pool.
One of the problems they were facing was having limited walking space around the pool, the other problem was that the pool was well and truly outdated and it needed revamping.
We attended the home to quote the pool & helped the owner through the decisions and planning process.
We suggested that the pool shape could be modified & the owner agreed that the shape had to be changed in order to gain the extra walking space around the pool but also to modernise the swimming pool and bring it into this century.
As you can see in this photo gallery, lots and lots of hard work went into modifying this swimming pool.
New reo-bars had to be installed into the shell of the swimming pool, as well as breaking into the original concrete shell to reach the existing reo bars within the concrete structure, the new reinforcement bars were anchored onto the existing steel in order to establish strength and help prevent separation of the new concrete.
Once this was complete the formwork went up and the concrete was poured in then vibrated to release any air pockets and compact the concrete further.
The essentials of the swimming pool stayed the same.
The original skimmer box and its location remained the same, this also applied to the main-drain on the pool floor, the pool light locations changed to suit the shape of the pool.
The pool depth in the swimming pool was not changed.
