Key Considerations For Building Your Commercial Pool

Whether you own a hotel, resort, spa or community center, a well-designed pool can attract guests and elevate the overall feel of your establishment. These considerations will be crucial in guiding your design decisions.

Who will be using the pool?

Before diving into the design process, it’s essential to understand your target audience and their preferences. Consider your guests’ demographics, including age, interests and lifestyle. 

Are they families with children, couples seeking a romantic getaway or business travelers looking for relaxation? Tailoring the pool design to meet your guests’ needs and preferences will ensure that it resonates with them and enhances their overall experience.

Will the design meet local codes and regulations?

Whether commercial or residential, any proper pool design should comply with construction and industry guidelines. This includes adhering to building codes, health regulations and safety guidelines. Failure to comply with these regulations puts your guests at risk and can result in costly fines and avoidable legal issues. 

Working with experienced pool designers and contractors ensures your project is executed with knowledge of and consideration for all regulations so your design meets all requirements.

What is the pool’s intended use?

When planning your custom pool, consider its primary purpose and function. Will it serve as a space for recreation and leisure, a tranquil oasis for relaxation or a versatile space for fitness

The intended use of the pool will influence its size, shape, depth and amenities. For example, a luxury resort often chooses an expansive infinity edge, which perfectly complements a luxurious oceanfront view.

On the other hand, a family-friendly community pool (like the one featured above) will often diversify its design to please a broader range of swimmers. This specific oasis incorporates shallow splash pads and fun water features for young guests, racing lanes for competitive swimmers and a zero-entry slope to provide easy access for all.

No design is better than the other. What matters most is that the end use meets the needs and desires of your target audience. 

Aesthetics and Theme

Your property’s pool is not an addition but an extension of your commercial space. Its design should complement the aesthetic and theme of your commercial property. 

Consider elements such as architectural style, landscaping and decor to create a cohesive and visually appealing environment. Choose materials, colors and finishes that align with your property’s branding and ambiance. 

Whether you opt for a sleek and modern design or a tropical and exotic theme, the goal is to create a cohesive and inviting space that reflects your brand identity and resonates with your guests.
