When Should Bluepools be brought into the Project Team?
All swimming & spa pools require specialist engineering design and it is essential that Bluepools is involved at an early stage in the design process.
For Public / Commercial Pool Projects Bluepools will provide a Proposal that is precisely tailored to suit the Clients Requirements
For Domestic Pools Bluepools provides its services in 5 Distinct Stages:
Stage 1 - Concept and Design
Very few Architects have the background and experience that is required to deal with the many issues involved in the effective integration of pool tank layout, pool equipment design and location including filtration and chlorination, hydraulic systems, safe chemical storage, and water recovery systems - let alone Efficient Renewable Energy Systems.
And so the early involvment of Bluepools will avoid disruptive and abortive design costs at a later stage.
Stage 2 - Detailed Design and Specification
During this Stage Bluepools will provide cost effective engineering and better building design in the development of pools and their associated buildings where the integration of architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical and drainage elements is essential.
Bluepools will provide a fully integrated design solution in a Folio of detailed engineering drawings, fully interfaced with other design professionals and detailed specifications to meet the project needs.
Stage 3 - Tendering and Contractor Selection
Every project will have its own special characteristics and so will need various contractors with varying backgrounds and experience. Large indoor domestic pools will require an experienced Local Builder whereas a commercial pool with deck level drains may require a main contractor as well as an experienced swimming pool installation contractor.
The Client does not have to worry about the Specification, Quality and Warranties of any of the Special and costly Pool Equipment because Bluepools will provide an integrated Equipment Package for
- Water treatment system
- Water filtration and disinfection
- Air Handling Units
- Piping system and Through the Wall Equipment
- Vinyl Liners
- Automated controls and instruments
- Submerged Lighting
- Hydrotherapy Systems for Spas
The Specification and Fixed prices that will be provided to the Client by Bluepools during this Stage.
The identification of the best submerged pool lighting is an important part of this process as modern LED lights - either white or multi-coloured virtually last for ever without needing bulb changes and cost about a quarter of what Halogen lights cost to run - but LED's are not cheap.
Stage 4 - Construction
With the right design, the Equipment Package, an appropriate contractor and an appropriate price in place, the installation works can commence with the reassurance that risk has been minimised.
Bluepools will carry out regular site inspections to check that the installation works are in accordance with specification, and co-ordinated with all the other trades.
Stage 5 - Commissioning
Comprehensive and effective commissioning is the key to a successful installation. Bespoke commissioning documents are prepared for each design by Bluepools, applied by the contractor and then independently verified by Bluepools.
Important mechanical, hydraulic, chemical and microbiological criteria must be satisfied to enable completion. Before a pool is handed over from the contractor to the client, the water quality should be verified for its safety, hygiene and attractiveness.
