Commercial Swimming Pool Construction

A major crowd-pulling attraction that appears in any amusement park, hotel facility, fitness center, or resort is their commercial swimming pools.

Whether it is a splash pad at a children’s park or a playful lazy river at an apartment complex, who doesn’t love lounging and relaxing beside a cool water body? A  commercial pool complex is still a favorite gathering spot even with a pool just steps from your backdoor.

Constructing a pool in any business establishment falls under the category of commercial pool building. This process drastically differs from residential pool building and is best handled by seasoned professionals who are well-versed in this specialized field.

Premier Pools & Spas, a nationwide company with 30 years of commercial pool construction experience, has completed hundreds of projects across the country. We excel in building new pools, partial remodels, and overall makeovers and provide the best quality service to schools, gyms, aquatic therapy centers, and more!

The Commercial Pool Building Process

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

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 experienced operators dig the site.

Phase 3: pool base. A stone or concrete pool bottom is laid to increase the structural integrity of the pool. The drain plugs go through the base.

Phase 4: plumbing and equipment. Commercial plumbing systems and all electrical conduits are installed in the trench.

Phase 5: steel installation. We install a steel rebar framework that provides maximum strength to the pool.

Phase 6: gunite application. Using the nozzle applicator, we shoot gunite into the entire pool in a single session to prevent cold bonds or cracking.

Phase 7: tile and coping. Once the gunite pool shell has cured, we install the depth tile and cast coping, which are the standard options for building commercial swimming pools.

Phase 8: deck and topsoil. We install the pool deck with a material of your choice and re-spread the topsoil to get it ready for landscaping.

Phase 9: finish and fill. Interior finish is applied, and water is filled in the pool. We balance the water chemistry, and then your pool is ready for your clients.

Advantages of Commercial Pool Building

There are multiple pools and related features in water parks, whereas most gyms and fitness clubs have at least one pool. A beautiful exotic pool can add to the value of the commercial property and help increase their revenue.

Relaxing Setting

High-end resorts and exotic holiday retreats tucked away in scenic locations will likely feature an infinity pool, which provides a relaxing setting amidst the picturesque nature. A community health center can install a swim spa, so visitors can be soothed by warm jets while basking in the holiday sunshine.

Exercise for All

Seeing a pool in the workplace every day can motivate your employees to take up more training. They can have a refreshing swim session during their breaks or stay after work to enjoy this perk.  Those who visit can gain healthier habits and become more physically active.

Visual Therapy

A well-maintained commercial pool deck catches the eyes of your clients when they step in. If limited space does not allow for small pool installation, consider adding a single outdoor pool feature. You can choose from many aesthetically pleasing options, such as the sheer curtain or a naturalistic waterfall with boulders.

Employee Satisfaction

In today’s world, there is increasing competition among companies to hire the best candidates. They offer paid leaves, healthcare, and many incentives to attract new talent. Having commercial swimming pools can entice potential hires to work for you and help retain your top employees.

How Commercial Pools Differ from Residential Pools

Compared to a pool in a single-family home, a similar-sized commercial pool has:

  • Increased headcount
  • More cost per square foot
  • Detailed design information and written specifications
  • Permits and compliance
  • Circulation system that accommodates higher bather load
  • Complex planning for plumbing
  • Larger commercial-grade equipment

Other Things to Consider When Building Commercial Pools

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. If possible, 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 municipality in the U.S. has different regulations for commercial pool construction. Some of them are pool fence barriers, safety covers, alarms, suction entrapment protection, and more. An experienced pool contractor who has vast knowledge about pool safety and state rules can help you comply with the law.
