Construction plans that are ready to go!

Our plans are always permit ready!

Not always applicable: in some cases additional requirements are needed such as engineering, but only in certain states / cities.
We work with hydraulic & water-shape engineers to help you if engineering approval is required.
You will need to submit your plans for city approval, but we advise you along the process. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think!
Whether or not you have ever installed a swimming pool you may have some general questions or concerns. Our swimming pool guides are designed to help answer these questions and more:
How much will I save if I build the pool myself?
How do I manage the project with a full time job?
How much does it cost to build a pool at cost?
Where do I purchase the pool equipment?
What are all the steps involved for installing a pool?
What do I do after the pool is completed?
Our thoughtfully crafted swimming pool guides will help you no matter if you are a newbie or seasoned pool owner.
Provided with each of our pool plan design packages are several checklists to help you stay on track and manage your installation effectively. Our reference sheets and checklists will guide you through the entire construction process from start to finish.
Here’s just a few of the checklists we provide:
City or County – Permitting
HOA / POA – applications
Parts & Components
Tools for maintenance
Quality of Work checklist
Maintenance post completion
The specific checklists you will receive are dependent upon the chosen plan package and / or the particular requirements of your pool project. The checklists will help both you and the subcontractors that you hire making sure that no detail is left out or skipped.
Either of our pool design packages will include it’s respective level of consultation services. Depending on the package we will be available for the set amount of hours per phase of construction to help with any questions or concerns you may have.
As an added benefit, both the Sapphire & Platinum design packages include helping you to send out requests for bidding the major phases of the project. We help with a few things involving the skilled trades you will need to hire for the work.
