Weinreich - Roldeck Swimming Pool Cover

The brief was simple: The client, a keen swimmer, wanted a pool for all year-round use with a deep swimming lane plus a shallow end for his children. The large linear design with a pool cover had to sit within the confines of the area to the back of the house and embrace its mature and natural surroundings – namely, the extensive gardens, the breath-taking sea view and the seagull-nesting cliffs.

The pool required planning permission as it is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the house is Grade II listed. The owners were keen to ensure the project did not have any detrimental impact on the existing building.

Newton Abbot pool specialists Westcountry Leisure were called upon to take on this ambitious project. For such challenging installation, only Certikin and Calorex equipment could provide the versatility needed. To complete everything, the client also requested a Roldeck automatic cover in order to provide the ultimate protection for the finished product.

MD of Westcountry Leisure, Mark Gilpin says: “It was certainly a challenging job and not one for those with a fear of heights! The proximity of the 20m drop over the cliff, just 6m away on one side, and the foundations of the two wings of the historical building within 2m on the other, required extensive shoring and stabilization of the dig.”

The existing York stone terrace was carefully removed prior to excavation for recycling to help the pool blend in. The stones, some of which weighed over 500 kg each, were cleaned, sorted, re-cut and re-laid as coping stones for the Roldeck automatic cover chamber.

 “It was the most technically challenging project we have undertaken, especially as we had to work with such restricted access. The provision of extensive retaining walls and additional safety to the pool cover all added to the complexity of the job. We are delighted to win a SPATA Gold award and gain valuable industry recognition for our efforts.”

Owner, Deborah Weinreich says: “We are delighted with the pool and the work of Mark Gilpin and the architect Ed Barker (South West Studio)".
