“Polly project managed the whole garden project under the design and guidance of Arne Maynard Garden Designs, London” says Richard Adams of New Dawn Pools, lead installation expert on the project.
“Polly, understandably, has exacting standards and a high level of perfection but the project was, in addition, challenging with a brook running through the property causing severe water table problems.”
After beginning construction in April, the finishing touches were applied ready for Christmas 2015. The four Nicholson children declared it the best Christmas present ever!
The stunning 15m x 7m pool set in natural Portland stone has a varying depth of 1.4m to 2.6m and features a Roldeck in cave cover with new polycarbonate solar slats and a safety ledge. Adding to the sense of luxury, stainless steel fittings are featured throughout, including ten Certikin stainless steel mini LED lights. The pool, which has a Midnight Sky Pacelite internal finish, also features Certikin deep bed filtration and ozone sterilization.
To ensure maximum performance, the pool comes equipped with a Certikin 50kw Genie gas boiler. In addition, a 35kw Genie dual partly heats the pool water as well as underfloor heating, showers, and hot water in the changing rooms. Richard adds: “An efficient and economical method of heating is essential as the pool is in operation 52 weeks of the year.”
