Case Study – Sissinghurst Project


We built the pool using traditional methods with thick 250mm reinforced concrete walls, using a double shutter system out of concrete blocks. The finish of the pool uses a special porcelain tile and particularly the laser water cut steps to create a well-defined demarcation for safety. Matching coloured fittings, undertrack safety cover has a hidden leading system so when the pool is open you cannot see any of the cover’s workings or leading edge. It is a total transformation of a neglected part of the garden to create a tranquil part of the garden for the family to retreat too.

“We are thrilled with the final outcome of our beautiful swimming pool. The large format slate effect tiles look stunning and produce the most inviting colour of water. The bespoke pool steps are a work of art and the attention to detail is quite amazing. The suggested combination of heat pump with a back up oil-fired boiler and heat exchanger meant we could maintain the water temperature very effectively and efficiently, enabling us to extend our swimming season until late October. ”
