What makes a successful aquatic facility?

It is our job to create, through innovative planning and design, truly successful aquatic facilities.”
who we are
Aquatic Design Consultants, Inc. is a design company founded by veteran professional aquatic designers who decided to build a firm completely dedicated to planning and designing truly successful facilities for their clients. We accomplish this goal by maintaining a staff of the most innovative, creative and aquatics savvy professional designers in the industry. The efforts of our designers are supported by the culture of our company. We encourage a sense of success based solely on how well we satisfy our client’s needs. Our designers are rewarded within the firm based on how successful their facility designs are. In the end, satisfying the needs of our clients is the only thing that matters.
Our company is not affiliated in any way with other companies such as manufacturers or contractors. This allows us to plan and design aquatic facilities with our only focus and loyalty being our clients. When needed, we work closely with all industry manufacturers and suppliers to procure whatever is needed to make our aquatic facilities perfect for our clients. Unlike “designs” provided by manufacturers or design companies that have side affiliations with others, our designs often include elements from a variety of manufacturers, suppliers and contractors. The end result is a lower cost aquatic facility, because manufacturers are not sole sourced, that is designed and constructed to perform exactly as needed to meet our clients’ objectives perfectly. We plan and design aquatic facilities with our only goal being the complete success of our clients.
what we do
Aquatic Facility Planning
Planning your facility starts with developing a full understanding of your needs and what you hope to accomplish with the facility. This includes what you want patrons of your facility to experience, as well as the financial objectives you have for the facility.
We approach every new project with a blank slate. We have no preconceived notions of how we are going to design the facility before developing a full understanding of our client’s objectives for the project. Every facility is different and our design efforts are customized to the uniqueness of each situation and each set of client objectives.
Thinking “outside of the box” is simply ingrained as part of our company culture. All of our professional aquatic designers thrive on developing unique solutions to make our clients’ projects extremely successful.
Often times, the first step in developing a waterpark or aquatic facility is determining the feasibility of the project. Our firm performs these types of studies routinely as part of our overall services to the client. Feasibility studies are conducted to determine everything from the type of amenities needed at the facility for the patron demographics of the service area, to the projected attendance and probable revenue streams to be expected. Typically, feasibility studies include at least some of these elements:
Conceptual designs | Service area determination | Population demographic evaluation
Infrastructure improvement needs | Cost projections (capital & operational)
Attendance projections | Revenue projections | Profit Scenarios
Aquatic Facility Design
After planning your facility with you, we begin the process of fully designing all of the intricate aquatic features and components that will make your facility complete. To design the details of your facility, we utilize our staff of the most innovative, creative and aquatics savvy professional designers in the industry. We custom design every detail in your facility and produce easy to follow plans and specifications for the project builder to follow. We understand all of the intricacies associated with designing aquatic facilities so that the final product is safe, functional, and above all meets your objectives as the owner.
Many times we are approached by a client who desires the design and construction of an aquatic facility from a combined design/build team. In these cases, we have several expert pool construction companies that we team up with to provide the client with the single source solution. We are extremely selective with the contractors we team with for these projects. Because of our extensive experience in this business, we only team with “top notch” contractors when such a need arises.
Specialized Aquatic Consultants
Because of our specialized expertise, we are frequently hired by architectural firms to serve as the specialized aquatic planners and designers on a variety of projects. For these types of projects, we work under the lead project architect to ensure that the aquatic facility portion of the project is professionally planned and designed to satisfy the client’s needs and objectives perfectly.
