Basement Conversion London - gym room

Plunge pool and spa area with specially manufactured waterfall tap and outlet fittings.

Bespoke Pool structure in Kerlite porcelain cladding with Mapei smart tanking system.

Abbeymead Building ltd, A Chartered Building Company( CBC) were contracted to carry out the refurbishment of a grade 1 listed property,  part of the works involved forming a bespoke bath within the spa area.

Due to the size of plunge pool, the tap and waste outlets for the had to be specially manufactured to suit the bespoke requirements.

The waterfall tap outlet was manufactured using a standard Dorn Bracht waterfall bath spout which was disassembled and extended from 150mm to 450mm in length, the outlet is then controlled with standard Dorn Bracht controls.

The waste outlet was also tailor made for the project.  The outlet is controlled by a 24 volt solenoid valve which is located externally to the spar.  As the water is drained away the vortex creates an interesting shadow on the Kerlite porcelain cladding.

The Kerlite was cut from 3000mm x 1000mm sheets using specialist equipment supplied by Sigma Tools

The Kerlite is adhered to the pools structure using Mapei’s Keraflex adhesive whilst the pool structure is tanked with the Mapei smart tanking system.  Mapei tested the Kerlite to ensure it was compatible with its products before works began.

Abbeymead Building Ltd employees undergo training with Mapei to ensure that the products are applied in accordance with the manufactures instructions.

Abbeymead Build Ltd designed the pool and had the loadings checked by a structural engineer to ensure that there was no movement within the pool structure.
