A turnkey project, the Hydro Active team, based in Doncaster, took on the supply and installation of this Vita XL4 swim spa, that was to be installed in-ground complete with a bespoke cedar enclosure, paving and turfing. The team had to overcome difficult conditions and very limited access to deliver. All works were carried out by just four full-time employees of with no sub-contractors involved. The team re-used and re-screened the spoil, adding reclamation value to cover spoil removal costs.
Through clever sourcing of materials and utilisation of their own trades’ people, they cut on labour and material costs. Coming in well below the budget target of £48,000. The customer wanted a focal point for his grandchildren to enjoy the benefit of swimming, whilst under the supervision of the grand parents, who were both keen swimmers and keen to help develop their children’s swimming abilities. They also wanted to make use of a dead space in their garden but without the expense of constructing a pool indoors. After trialling the swim spa in Hydro Active’s Armthorpe showroom they decided that the swim spa in a building would be ideal because it has the option of being fully open or fully closed for winter.
The importance of avoiding planning permission was paramount, therefore particular attention was given to the design nature as to conform with permitted development rights. The building has optional sides that would fully enclose it, if the customer so desires. “As always we service to deliver the project well under indicated timescales and well within budget,” comments Hydro Active’s Andy Price. “We found issues within the excavation of water lines, not marked or indicated from an old building and electrical cables, again from an old structure located just off site. “These items were thought up have been made defunct many years ago, but were still operational. “We re-routed and reconnected both without any further action or cost to the client. “With added extras to the building design to enhance its appearance, not charged for either, ensured that we exceeded the customer’s expectations.”
