SWIMMING POOL DESIGN
Swimming Pool Design
What is the most important aspect of swimming pool design?
First and foremost, to make sure that the pool water stays within the pool.
That being said, what we do best is to help you understand what options you have got, facilitate you to make the suitable choice, get you what you want and when you want it, and all within a sensible budget. What we also do is to advise you on the don’ts as much as the do’s so that the expectations are managed and met, if not exceeded.
In terms of the actual pool build, as you have read before, you can have a variety of options at different price points, starting with above-ground timber framed pools at the bottom end to the fully tiled concrete pools at the top, with vinyl-lined block pools and fibreglass pools sitting somewhere in between, you can read more on the swimming pool prices page, but these are all basically the ways to build the tank that holds the water you swim in, which is very important for the way the pool will look, but and technically they all serve the same purpose. We just design the shape and profile for usability, aesthetics and safety, plus specify what materials to use and how.
The more important part of the design is the circulation of water within the pool, as that is what will affect the uniformity of temperature in the pool water and also the distribution of the pool sanitiser, and after that probably the design of filtration of that water that happens in the swimming pool plant room. Pool water heating is also a subject of proper detailed design, especially in the case of indoor swimming pools where there is a separate specialisation in design of the H&V systems.
As a design package, what we provide for outdoor pool projects is:
Calculation of bather loads, flow rates and capacities of filtration & heating equipment required
Drawings for pool fittings layout within the pool shell
Drawings for pool plumbing within the pool, from pool to plant room and within plant room
Drawings for plant room equipment layout within the plant room
Drawing for electrical wiring
Drawing for pool operation schematics
Operation manual for the pool once finished
For indoor pools, what we do additionally is:
Calculation of pool hall volumes, glass areas and airflows
Drawings for pool hall ducting and grilles layout
Specification of the dehumidification machine and layout drawings
Pool cover, pool features and associated services drawings
Outdoor pool design packages start from £495 and indoor pool design packages start from £995.

SWIMMING POOL PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Swimming Pool Project Management
For any project whether construction related or not, it is important to organise and coordinate all of the tasks and resources needed to complete the construction or refurbishment of your swimming pool. This can include working with your architects and designers to reconcile and match architectural and technical drawings, obtaining necessary method statements and installation manuals for allied works, estimating quantities, finding suppliers, ordering materials and equipment, scheduling and coordinating the work of contractors and other professionals, and managing budgets and timelines.
Effective project management is essential for ensuring that the construction or refurbishment of a swimming pool is completed on time, within budget, and to the desired quality standards. In larger projects, the responsibilities of a swimming pool project manager include setting project goals and objectives, developing and implementing project schedule, tracking progress and performance, and communicating with team members, stakeholders, and clients.
Our design and project management team is experienced in planning, coordinating, and overseeing of pool construction projects, and we break down the process into the following key steps:
Define the scope of the project
We identify and document all of the work that needs to be done in order to complete the project successfully. This typically involves creating a detailed project plan that outlines the specific tasks, deliverables, and resources that will be required. To define the scope of a project is an important first step in project management, as it provides a clear and comprehensive overview of the work that needs to be done, and helps to ensure that everyone involved in the project has a shared understanding of what needs to be accomplished.
Set project goals and objectives
We establish clear, measurable targets for the project, including timelines, budgets, and performance standards. Also important at this stage is to identify any potential issues that might impact the project, and develop contingency plans to address them.
Develop a stage wise project schedule
This includes creating a detailed schedule of tasks in the correct order, planning the deployment of resources and tradesmen to work together as much as possible whilst ensuring nobody is stepping on other's toes.
Manage the project team
Once work starts on site, we will coordinate the activities of all contractors, subcontractors, plumbers, electricians and other tradespeople to ensure that the project is completed on schedule and to the desired quality standards.
Monitor progress and valuations
This involves tracking the progress of the project, calculating how much work has been done, dealing with any issues or challenges that arise, and taking corrective action as needed to keep the project on track.
Quality control and sign off on completed project
On completion of the project, we will ensure that all works as it should and any variations from the original scope have been with good reasons.
The main two risks of failing to manage a project competently are delays in completion and cost overruns, usually both, so it makes sense in getting professional project managers to take care of your investment.
