Initial Consultation And Design

Your BBCP representative provides an initial, no-cost consultation to discuss the specifications of your pool build, including design features, pool features, and other items on your wish list. You’ll have input on the complete design of your custom pool while getting valuable advice from experts in the field about placement and suggested options like slides, diving boards, water features, and adjacent in-ground hot tubs.

If you’re still not sure how you want your swimming pool to look, visit our expansive showroom to get ideas from our wide array of finish options. Once we’ve helped you select an appropriate site for your pool, received final approval on your design plans, and determined which of our design partners best fulfills your project requirements, we get ready to build.

Obtaining Permits

Before we begin the actual construction, we secure all the necessary permits required for building your pool. Our residential swimming pool builders want to make your build as hassle-free as possible for you so you never have to deal with the time-consuming paperwork involved in building a pool. In townships requiring formal engineering plans and stormwater management calculations, we use Bolo Engineering to handle any necessary surveying and engineering work. Our dedicated staff ensures all the proper documentation is in order for a timely approval of your pool design that allows us to begin construction as soon as possible.

Custom Construction

Before we break ground, we map out the pool on-site, so you can easily visualize the dimensions of your new pool. Our construction manager also meets with you to answer any questions you might have and go over the expectations for the building process.

It typically takes one or two days to finish excavation. Then, we cover the pool floor with a crushed stone base, rough in the plumbing, and reinforce the structure with a steel rebar cage for stability. We inspect and approve all structural elements to assure quality, then add a gunite (concrete) shell to create the strongest in-ground pool on the market.

We only build gunite pools, so we’re experts in building the highest quality concrete pools possible. Depending on the scope of your project, it typically takes six to eight weeks to finish constructing your new pool from start to finish. However, if you’re adding landscaping, stonework, and/or other construction work, it could add several weeks or sometimes months to your project.

Landscaping And Finishing Touches

We understand the importance of involving you in all the design choices, so once we’ve completed construction, we schedule a visit to our showroom. Here you can view our numerous tile and pool finish options and choose the finishing touches that give your new pool the look you desire.

Another important aspect is landscaping to ensure your pool blends seamlessly into your backyard environment. We work closely with independent local landscapers who use trees, shrubs, plants, flowers, and outdoor decor to fully integrate your new pool into its surroundings. Your finished look can be as simple or as ornate you want.
