Project Description

Northbridge Wow

This client’s brief for this project designed and built by Jakin Homes & Pools, was that they wanted a huge “wow” factor when they looked out from their newly constructed house.

What was designed and subsequently built certainly met the brief of being “wow”. The pool is fully tiled 8.5m long x 3.5 m wide, with a wet edge spill over facing towards the house and entertaining areas. The pool has a large spa that has glass sides to again create not only a very functional space but also being visually stunning. The rear wall of the pool is raised to create a nice backdrop and screens out the boundary fencing. This raised wall has a continuous 8.5 m water feature that spills down the fully tiled wall which is also backlight with an LED strip light which looks fantastic at night and illuminates the running waterfall.

We undertook the entire project including the pool and spa construction, the timber decking abutting the pool, the fencing, the planting, irrigation system and garden lighting.

The site was very difficult to access due to limited access down the side of the newly completed house. A scaffold was built to form a ramp for the excavation and materials handling for the duration of the project.

The pool and spa are fully automated via a Viron connect 10 controller system all activated by a touch screen panel inside the house or via a mobile phone. The sanitation system is a salt chlorinator, it is heated with a Viron gas heater and the pool is kept clean via an Astral pool robotic cleaner.

This project was very satisfying for our team, to see a house with a blank backyard be transformed into such a good space with a functional and beautiful pool and spa and for the client to be so happy with the finished product.
