Tiled Hydrotherapy Pool with Swimjet Machine Project Details

Project Overview

We were approached by Mr and Mrs Gay (client) initially to work in conjunction with their Builder to provide a compact pool that could be utilised for both domestic and commercial use (hydrotherapy and swimming lessons).

It became apparent early on that our in-house Architectural Services would be required to also carry out a full Design of the Pool and Building Extension, and obtain the necessary Planning Permission and Building Regulations Approvals for the scheme.

We drew on our many years of expertise in the Design and Build sector to successfully obtain the relevant permissions that now make Mr and Mrs Gay able to realise their long term dream of running their business from home, and we are extremely pleased with the end result, and that our clients business continues to flourish.

You can achieve an awful lot in a confined space with careful Design and consideration.

Client Testimonial

“I contacted several swimming pool contractors but didn’t feel convinced or confident with them, and then a friend of mine who had a pool built several years ago recommended Grayfox Swimming pools. I phoned them the next day and spoke to Nigel. My immediate impression was that he knew what he was talking about. We arranged a meeting so he could take a look at the site and recommend the best way forward. Nigel suggested a few variations to the project which would save us money in the short and long term. I found Nigel to be helpful, knowledgeable and understanding to our needs. After the meeting is was a no brainer, I felt highly confident in Grayfox swimming pools.

We wanted a swimming pool that we could use for commercial as well as personal use. Due to the nature and complexity of the build and end use, and several neighbours strongly against the project we brought on board Grayfox architect Steve Jones, who I cannot speak highly enough of. He drew the plans up in no time and if I had any concerns Steve got it sorted. Steve also made several visits to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council committee meetings putting our case forward for commercial usage. He acquitted himself to the highest possible standards gaining us commercial usage for the swimming pool.

The swimming pool is 6m x 3m with a depth of 1.2m with a fastlane machine and is built to the highest possible standard. The building has 2 changing rooms, a shower room, a toilet and a plant room. The building is sound proof and well insulated.

I found Grayfox to be highly efficient in all aspects of work from the first meeting, planning, price, building and aftercare. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough for anyone who wants professional job.“

Indoor Tiled Pool with Automatic Cover Project Details

Project Overview

Having been approached by Mrs Hogarth (client) to discuss ideas regarding a ‘potential’ detached pool hall in the garden that suitably reflected her house, and the project quickly gathered pace following our swift appointment to Design the pool and building, with a view to working alongside her trusted Builder to deliver the project within a fixed timeframe.

We had a sit down, and discussed some ball park figures, along with what we could provide that fell within Permitted Development Legislation (Planning). The Design Brief was incorporated, along with a few subtle ideas of our own based upon our knowledge and experience.

The end result is enjoyed by the whole family, and we are proud to have been a part of the project in its entirety.

Not everything needs Planning Permission if you know the rules.

Client Testimonial

“Delighted with the service

From the initial idea to completion of the project Greyfox were uber helpful and professional. They delivered the project on time and for exactly the price quoted. I used the full service from design of the building right down to completion. Their knowledge of equipment was invaluable. I am delighted with the efficiency of the very high tech equipment in the plant room and the pool is everything I hoped it would be. It can be scary at first if you have never owned a pool before but Greyfox held our hand every step of the way. They did not just disappear on completion but made themselves available for any questions we had. They came for the pool commissioning and took time to talk us through it all. The instruction manual was excellent and we were left with everything we could possibly need. We thought that maintaining a pool would be very complicated and time consuming but it is a doddle! We spend about five minutes a week doing the maintenance and that is it! The equipment is amazing. I would not hesitate to recommend Greyfox to anyone, they were stars! I must make special mention of Steve who designed my pool, he really did bend over backwards to be helpful and most importantly, he listened to what we said we wanted and made sure it happened. A great big Thankyou to all at Greyfox.”

"To whom it may concern.

We instructed Grayfox to install our new swimming pool in 2014.

From Day 1, we have been totally bowled over by the service we have received. If ever we had any potential problems they were swiftly removed by the great attention received from Nigel & his Team.

The advice given on any matter from the choice of tiles to the filter / heating system has been extremely beneficial.

The quality of their work has been first class & we feel totally at ease with the on-going telephone advice & general back up that is at hand to us.

We can thoroughly recommend them & would be very happy to show any potential clients their work first hand.

Thank you,

Ian & Sophie

Full Refurbishment Project 2 Project Details

Project Overview

Having serviced this pool for good number of years, our client expressed an interest in modernising the entire Swimming Pool Wing on one of our service visits. Our in-house Architectural Technician attended a Design Meeting with the client to ascertain their requirements and discuss how best to facilitate the alterations. Grayfox then re-designed the space (see drawing) and managed the Tender stage ahead of appointing a trusted Contractor to carry out the works under our supervision.

We all had a very clear goal from the outset, and that was to totally re-vamp a space that was very much of its time into a crisp and contemporary area, reflecting both the clients and our Designers vision for the project - we are all extremely proud of the end result, and the client is over the moon!

Client Testimonial

"I'd like to thank the team at Grayfox for all their work in transforming the indoor pool from a dark rather dated space into such a beautiful contemporary one. When I decided to refurbish the pool hall and changing rooms, knowing that swimming pools create their own specific technical issues, I contacted Grayfox to ask their advice. I was delighted to find they are able to take on the design work and supervise the building works up to completion. During the initial design stage I found that they were helpful in both understanding my requirements and offering design options and technical advice that made the subsequent building phase run smoothly, dealing with the many questions that needed their professional understanding to make sure that things work well. I felt I could get my vision for the space across without being railroaded into choices, while also being able to leave the structural side to the experts and trust in the team to make sure it could be done."

"Their helpful attitude continued throughout the construction phase from helping to find a general contractor to the other, more specialist, suppliers and trades, for example the skylight manufacturer and the air conditioning ducting. Between Steve Jones from Grayfox and the contractor the project management ran about as smoothly as I have ever encountered and I felt that during the building work any issues I had would be listened to and dealt with by someone who had even more exacting standards than me. I found it especially useful that Grayfox could provide me with an accurate breakdown of the cost of any work so I was able to keep track of the total cost of the work and make decisions about extra work, for example if I should re-tile the entire pool or just re-grout the existing tiles. In the end I went with the new tiles and am delighted to have done so."
