Strancally Castle. County Waterford

Contract Details:

Cumnor Construction Ltd. carried out the role of Works Contractor and PSCS for this project.

This contract was for the construction of a new swimming pool connected to the existing castle. In keeping with the historical nature of the castle, and the importance of keeping the new pool adjacent to the existing castle, the pool was constructed below ground.

The work consisted of the construction of a 25m long indoor/outdoor pool with a rising floor that became an outdoor terrace when the pool was not in use. A bar and poolside lounge, jacuzzi, spa, gymnasium and professional treatment room were also constructed.

Limitations on levels demanded a creative roof solution. This entailed the use of long-span precast units to maximise span without the need for internal columns.

A large skylight was constructed with glass beams to support it. One end of the pool was separated from the outside by a fully automatic frameless glazed door that sliced through the pool water surface.
