How Early Should You Plan for a New Commercial Pool?



Building a commercial pool is not the same as building a small pool for a single-family residence. With commercial swimming pool construction, we expect the process to take more time. Some of the factors that have to be taken into consideration are the size of the pool, how much extra work needs to be done on the site, the procurement of permits, and our building schedule. In this article, we'll talk about how early you should start planning for new commercial custom pools in Newman.

Consider the Size of the Project

By definition, a commercial pool is much larger than a residential pool. Therefore, it requires more time to excavate the area and build the pool. If we're building more than one pool, such as a big pool and a kiddie pool, we need to allow for additional time in our building estimate. As a general rule of thumb, the bigger your project, the longer it will take to complete the work.

However, we can speed things up by batching the tasks if you plan your entire project ahead of time. For example, it's usually quicker to excavate the area for several pools at once than to do the projects in stages.

Working on the Site

Another factor we take into consideration is how much work will have to be done to the site. For example, in some cases, we have to build retaining walls to support the structural integrity of the pool. Your site may need to be cleared before we can begin to get it ready for the new pool. Before we can give you an accurate time and cost estimate, we'll take a look at the site you're planning to build on.

Commercial Pools Need Permits

Before we can start working on your commercial pool, you need to obtain the appropriate permits from the local building authorities. It's not always possible to predict how long it takes to receive the permits, so this is a step you should take as soon as possible. Nothing can happen with your pool construction without the appropriate building permits. Of course, you'll probably have to finalize your pool designs with us before you can apply for the permits.

Our Building Schedule

Like most pool builders, we have a full schedule every summer. It's the most popular time of the year to build a pool. If you don't want to wait around for an opening in our schedule, you may want to contact us off-season. Of course, the sooner we discuss your project, the sooner we can fit you into our schedule, no matter what time of the year it is.
 

It's Never Too Early to Start

If you're thinking about building a new pool within the next year, it's a good idea to get started now. If we don't have to rush around to get the appropriate permits, it'll be easier to ensure that your pool construction gets done on time. We also have to keep in mind that inclement weather may delay your project, so we advise you to start as early as you can to avoid getting behind schedule. The bottom line is: It's never too early to contact us about commercial custom pools in Newman.
