Project Overviewx

ACS was contracted to build an Olympic Time Trial specific swimming pool. The construction of the reinforced concrete in the swimming pool had to be precise specification within a 10mm tolerance.

The pool itself had an intricate transfer channel detail around the whole perimeter. This was constructed as part of the main structure using bespoke timber void formers.

No proprietary tanking system was used in the pool and it was totally reliant for water tightness on the quality of the ACS workmanship. Particularly in relation to items such as rebar and insitu concrete pouring to the relevant British Standards for watertight structures. There was also a low level boom trench as part of the RC works which was formed within the pool base slab.

Also included in the scope of works was the construction of pile cap foundation bases and ground beams split on three different levels with limited access, concrete slabs, up to 6 metres, retaining walls, column casings, insulation, waterproofing and below ground drainage.

Works were completed to the highest possible standards in challenging weather / site conditions achieving the high contract specification.
