Decades of leadership and innovation.

Established in 2014 as Aloha by Design, Commercial Pool Consulting entered the commercial aquatic design market in 2018 with the mission to provide professional, independent and considered aquatic design consultation services to the commercial building and construction industry.

While significant consideration and attention was being provided to major municipal aquatic centres, we recognised that there was a lack of design and understanding being provided to the wider commercial aquatic market. This resulted in pools and other aquatic elements that did not perform as intended, including not meeting basic statutory and code requirements, and exposing clients to costly pool and building repairs.

We seek to eliminate these issues by providing a complete, independent and specialist design solution for aquatic facilities of all sizes. From a simple lap pool for residents in an apartment complex to a full-scale community aquatic centre, we aim to deliver designs that will operate efficiently for years to come.

With 25 years of construction and commercial aquatics experience, we bring a deep understanding of what it takes to deliver successful projects.

Our values

1

Quality First

The quality of our documentation is our primary focus and our point of difference. The cost and time implications of project documentation that is inaccurate or lacking in detail can frustrate clients, contractors and designers alike. We take pride in our project documentation, always ensuring that it is clear, accurate and concise.

2

Universal Design

Designing your aquatic facility so that it is accessible to all is something CPC are passionate about. Rather than simply including ‘add-ons,’ we aim to fully integrate all accessibility elements into the design. CPC adopt the principles of Universal Design with an inclusive view of how people of all abilities access and engage with the facility. Our designs intend to go ‘beyond compliance’ and are based on the principles of individual autonomy, enabling full and effective participation in society.

3

Compliant

It is increasingly common to come across pool designs or specifications that do not satisfy the relevant legislative or code requirements. All too often, the design will nominate non-compliant construction methods, materials and equipment. CPC ensure that your aquatic facility is fully compliant with all health, accessibility, construction and energy efficiency requirements. This protects your investment and mitigates potential risks from non-compliance.

4

Professional

CPC pride ourselves on our professionalism and the way we conduct ourselves. We ensure that all communication is timely, all correspondence is clear and concise, documentation is legible and detailed, and our team is punctual, attentive and friendly. We understand all too well the frustrations caused by missed target dates and inefficient or non-existent communication. We strive to meet all project deadlines we commit to.
