Pellikaan Construction engaged Hague to undertake the construction of a 25m Olympic Standard swimming pool and a 5m deep diving pool as part of a new leisure centre for Morden Canal.
The project was carried out on a greenfield site with the requirement for all excavated materials to be retained on site.
This criteria was successfully met by careful planning of the levels across the site and incorporated the landscaping design to blend in with the surrounding area.
The concrete pool was cast in-situ to a high specification of tolerances and simple finish.
Several challenges arose during the construction phase, one of which involved the implementation of a redesign for a diaphragm wall following the ground stability being found to be inferior to the original soil investigation report.
This challenge was successfully solved following our collaboration with the project team and the project was delivered on time to the client.
Following the success of this, our first project with Pellikaan, we have undertaken further similar projects with them.
