Your pool consultant should be your advocate to ensure that the pool contractor is submitting the specified commercial grade project equipment and has accurate shop drawings. We are reminded of several projects where we discovered the pool contractor had substituted the pool and spa handicap lift for an inferior product that was not ADA compliant. As a result the owners were faced with purchasing a true ADA compliant lift and literally throwing away what was supplied by the pool contractor.
A good pool consultant can pay for himself many times over. Think of your next project. Envision actually discussing ahead of time what is important to YOU as well as the brand standard of the property and seeing this reflected in a complete set of construction documents. When your GC goes out into that market with a fully coordinated set of plans, he can give you a legitimate competitive bid from several commercial pool contractors. We can assure you the money you can save on the pool bids will be greater than our fee to design the project.
We have worked with many brands over the years; including Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Omni, Westin, Sheraton, Aman Resorts, and nearly every limited service brand existing. We can offer you accurate information and detailed construction drawings that will conform to your standards.
