The Master Plan Stage

Design & Technical Specifications

The Design and Technical Specifications stage ("Design stage") involves the production of an AutoCAD design, full specifications and confirmation of project costs, which all form the basis for the Construction stage.  (Please note that project costs usually do not change at all - particularly for natural designs - or change very little, from the Design Consultation stage.)
    First we will produce a concept AutoCAD design (example left, top) and discuss this with you until you confirm you are happy to proceed. We then produce all the detailed design documentation and specifications (examples left, middle and bottom) which will be used by the construction team in building your swimming pond to our specific requirements.
    A standard detailed design package includes the following drawings:

  • Overall plan (e.g. left, top)

  • Setting out 

  • Excavation & profiles (e.g. left, middle)

  • Dividing structure

  • Pond edge and drainage

  • Liner 

  • Filtration system

  • Planting plan (e.g. left, below)

  • Access points e.g. steps, ladder, jumping rock

  • Other features as required e.g. waterfall, decking, lights

We can explain more about the Design and Construction stages during the Design Consultation.
