Concept #1

Plan Labels & Descriptions

P-1 Dimensional Layout

The above symbol is provided on plan as a reference point for the design elements that are being considered.

These labels together with descriptions and arrows point to the locations that identify the specific components.

The Design Sheets that are referenced as; Sheets P-1, P2, P3, P4, P5, P-6 and P-7 use these labels to direct you to the specific pages of reference that may become part of the advancing level of design, should you desire further clarifications.

Permit Ready Plans…

P-1 Dimensional Layout__P-1 Dimensional Layout__P-1 Dimensional Layout

Permit Ready Plan i.e. Sheets P-1, P-3 & P-5 reflect what is necessary in submitting for a Building Permit.

These are intended to exhibit the information that involves a typical Building Department’s critiques, in which they can identify the intentions for reaching compliance for the swimming pool building codes.

Advanced Design Levels and Construction Details

P-2 Plumbing, Electrical & Lighting__P-6 Gas Line Run__P-7 Custom Spa Layout

If an Owner Builder approach is being sought after then Sheets P-2, P-6 and P-7 would be a possibility for extending the plan sheets that can provide a deeper understanding for the “how to” installation approaches of pipes, conduits and equipment.

If any of these P-Sheets have not been included in the design quotation, you may request them at this stage of development as a Design Addendum.

Construction Details

P-4 Construction Details

Individual “Details” can be exhibited on Sheet P-4, and these are offered at $75.00/ Ea. and can be accumulated as needed to provide greater understanding for the individual components i.e.; Laminar Jets, Fire Pits, Water Features, etc…

Advancing the Understandings…

We are a resource for information that can aid your journey in incorporating a 1st class swimming pool / spa standard into your project.

In our design approach, we offer our clients a selection in that of the level of design that may be most appropriate for their needs.

As that understanding may evolve and if a desire for exhibiting greater intensity becomes desired for the design intent, then we offer additional services that can facilitate a deeper meaning.

Your Swimming Pool & Spa…

This pool’s 1,470-SF and has a 180-PF. It’s variable width is shown on the drawing, being 22′-0″ at it’s widest. The bottom depth ranges from -12″ in the Cabo Shelf shallow to 6′-6″ in the deepest part. Swim-Out Bench seating depth is -18″.

There step entry abuts the one end having 7-steps that are -6″ each.

The Pool’s water volume is approximently 30,000 gallons, thus requiring a filtration pumping flow rate of 85 gpm in order to accomplish one turn-over every six hours.

The Spa’s water volume is approximently 750 gallons, thus requiring a filtration pumping flow rate of 13 gpm in order to accomplish one turn-over per hour.

Construction Details

The concrete flat-work could involve poured in-place cantilever edge. The development of specifications for pouring, placing and finishing the concrete flat-work can establish the criteria for how to accomplish a 1st Class standard. These directions can involve;

Pool Equipment Pad Location

The Pool / Spa equipment area will need to determined and be compliant with mandated clearances.

Raised Bond Beam Sections…

There are (2) two sections of Raised Bond Beam that accommodate Sheer Descent Waterfalls (+24″ and +18″), as well the possibility for Gunite Walls (+60″) that would be part of the structural elements. The wall could have the same as the house’s matching finish applied.

Please use the form below to select any of the Construction Details that you wish to purchase and make inclusive to the design.

Please provide an explanation for any special engineering requirements. Also...structural engineering consideration will need to have the compliment of a current (within 2-years) soils report and a property plot plan and topographical survey forwarded to us in a pdf.file format.
In some case we are requested to produce information that will require the investment of overtime hours, which we are willing and able to perform. In such cases we must apply an up-charge in order to cover our additional expenses.
