Indian Stone Court Yard Matlock

Indian Stone was used to transform a dilapidated back yard to create a lovely, clean and bright patio area.  Aco drains were incorporated to take any surface rain water away.  Once the old concrete was removed, levels were made up with well compacted road stone.  The surface was prepared before the Indian stone was laid onto a mortar screed.  The joints were then pointed with a non cracking material.

Cast Concrete Swimming Pool Derbyshire

Alan Bailey Groundworks complete the Cast Concrete Swimming Pool in Derbyshire,  ready for the next specialist rendering company to waterproof the pool structure before tiling commences.  Plastic pipes created voids within the cast concrete walls for the installation of pool lighting.  We used A Mix to supply the concrete, having their own concrete pump, necessary for this particular project.

Specialist Concrete Installation Derbyshire

Swimming Pool Construction continued………

The next phase of the construction of the swimming pool required Specialist Concrete Installation.  This project particularly,  required  careful planning in the construction,  due to the pressure the water would create once filled with water.  For this reason reinforced mesh was laid on the concrete blinding to give strength to the structure.

The next phase of this Specialist Concrete Installation required Pumped Concrete to be laid over the mesh.¬† This created the floor level from which ‘shuttering’ was constructed to form the concrete sides of the pool.

Within the sides of the shuttering more steel reinforced mesh was used to to give the concrete structure more strength.¬† There are pressures from the water in the pool and the ground pushing inwards.¬† Concrete was then pumped within the shuttering to form the sides of the pool.
