Private swimming pool building in Wigtoft, Boston

Published on Monday 10 November 2014

We have been on site approximately 4 weeks now as we embark on the construction of a new private swimming pool facility for a private client near Boston. We were procured under a negotiated tender to build this £1.5m building.

The project is set to be very interesting for all involved as we look forward to progressing this high specification swimming pool.

The photo below shows the piling continuing as we take some levels for later on in the ground. The steel encased piles are being driven to a depth of 13m and are pre augured to a depth of 3m to reduce the sensitivity of vibration against the existing building.
