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.

Excavation for Swimming Pool Derbyshire

Recently Alan Bailey Groundworks completed an excavation to create a Swimming Pool in Derbyshire.

An existing concrete base was broken up using a  Hydraulic Breaker.  The rubble was then removed using our mini digger and dumpers.  Once the site was cleared the pool dimensions were marked out  ready for excavation.

Concrete Blinding for pool base

Upon completion of excavation, a layer of drainage stone was compacted.  The pool base was then blinded with concrete for a level working area.  Swimming Pool construction continued…….
