French Project

Spectacular Infinity Edge Pool built near Mirambeau near the Gironde Estuary

In this project Bluepools was the Design and Build contractor. We took the project over from a French pool builder that had gone bankrupt.

Bluepools also provided all the pool plant including the air source het pump, the complex control system, the pipework, pumps, filters and the submerged automatic floating cover.

Bluepools commissioned all the systems and installed and fine tuned the chemical dosiong systems.

This was the original design sketch which we used to seel our proposals to the Client - different from now when we would produce a folio of 20 drawings!
