Small Scale Groundworks Contract

Blewbury Building Company- South Morton- September 2014

Customer Brief

To complete the groundworks and foundation structure for a modern outside swimming pool with electric powered current. The swimming pool was being installed in the middle of a well-kept garden with restricted access.

Recommendations and Quotes

We immediately provided a competitive quote with an estimated project length of 2 weeks for 3 men. The quote was accepted and straight away and the job started within 6 weeks.

Project Execution

Small scale plant was required to fit down the restricted access and we created boarded walkways to protect the rest of the garden.

Firstly, we had to excavate a 40m2 pit up to 1.5mtrs deep in places and then installed a 200mm reinforced concrete slab with hard-core base and 2000 gauge DPM. We used concrete block shuttering to form a mould for the pool and installed surface water drainage around the perimeter. Finally, we fitted an emergency foul outlet to be connected to the existing sewer.


The project ran smoothly and we completed in 8 days. The customer was extremely happy and the installation of the swimming pool was completed shortly after we had finished our works.
