The Process

The Commercial Pool Building Process

Depending on the size, requirements, and unique features that enhance the area, a commercial pool construction project may take anywhere between 6-24 weeks depending on weather conditions.

Pre-Construction: Architectural

Overall design and permits ready for submission to the building/health departments (3-4 Weeks)

Phase 1: Layout and Elevations

After getting the plan approval, we begin the construction by setting the elevation and laying out the pool.

Phase 2: Excavation

The topsoil is stripped, and our experienced operators dig the site.

Phase 3: Pool Base

A stone or concrete pool bottom is laid to increase the pool’s structural integrity. The drain plugs go through the ground.

Phase 4: Plumbing and Equipment

Commercial plumbing systems and all electrical conduits are installed in the trench.

Phase 5: Steel Installation

Installation of a steel rebar framework that provides maximum strength to the pool.

Phase 6: Gunite Application

Using a nozzle applicator, gunite is shot into the pool in a single session to prevent cold bonds or cracks.

Phase 7: Tile and Coping

When the gunite pool shell has cured, the depth tile and cast coping are installed, which is the standard option for building commercial swimming pools.

Phase 8: Deck and Topsoil

The pool deck is installed with a material of your choice and re-spread the topsoil to be ready for landscaping.

Phase 9: Finish and Fill

The interior finish is applied, and water is filled in the pool. The water chemistry is properly balanced, and then your pool is ready for swimming.

Things To Consider

Things to Consider When Building Commercial Pools

Depending on the size, requirements, and unique features that enhance the area, a commercial pool construction project may take anywhere between 6-12 weeks or more.

Project Design

Every business has to uphold its image. So when you invest in commercial swimming pools, they must reflect your brand. Hire a commercial pool builder that can work with architects or engineers or has a team to design your pool. View your options in a 3-D model rendition before the construction begins.

Permits and Inspections

From getting the design and layout approval to the building permits and inspections, there is a lot that goes into commercial pool construction. Choosing a pool builder that provides a comprehensive package will provide peace of mind while you enjoy the best possible pricing from the suppliers and vendors.

Zoning Requirements

Each state and local U.S. municipality has different commercial pool construction regulations. These are pool fence barriers, safety covers, alarms, suction entrapment protection, and more. An experienced pool contractor with vast knowledge of pool safety and state rules can help you comply with the law.
