STEP 1 : DREAM
We believe in dreams. Your dreams! Before you call us – or any pool design company – we encourage you to go outside, relax in your yard, and let your imagination roam free. Make notes for yourself, and discuss them with your family.
Things to think about:
- What kind of environment do you imagine?
- A tropical forest, with grottos and waterfalls
- Crisp, contemporary architecture
- A Grecian bath, with marble archways
What do you see yourself doing?
- Relaxing with your family?
- Romantic evenings with your loved one?
- Entertaining a crowd?
- Swimming laps, for exercise?
- Playing sports?
STEP 2 : DESIGN
Our designers win awards for creativity, but their skill in construction techniques and financial planning is equally impressive. They do more than design your personal paradise – they help you get the most for your money.
Your designer will listen to your hopes and dreams, study your space and discuss your options. He or she will sketch out possibilities, and work with you to draw a “vellum” plan with all the elements in place.
If you wish, our artists will then draw a three-dimensional perspective and a watercolor painting to help you envision your oasis.
STEP 3 : ENGINEER
The next visitor to your home will be a Landcon field technician. Working from the designer’s vellum, the technician ensures that the dimensions for the work of improvement are accurately measured, any potential construction problems are identified, the scope of work is correctly calculated and all government permit requirements are met.
After the visit, the Landcon group creates the formal computer-aided drawings that guide the Swan construction team. The same drawings are submitted for your city’s permit process.
Landcon obtains all necessary City permits on your behalf.
Once we receive your City permits, we’re on to construction!
STEP 4 : CONSTRUCTION
Your aquatic environment will be built in stages, starting with removing the soil and ending with a beautiful finish in the pool interior.
Browse through the steps and imagine your dream coming true.
- Installing plumbing and electrical
- Installing the re-inforcing steel
- Forming the actual pool structure with Gunite
- Installing the decorative coping and tile
- Installing the hardscape
- Installing the softscape
- Installing the interior finish
- Adding water and starting up the project
STEP 5 : LANDSCAPE
Let our landscape designers meet with you to design the project of your dreams!
Our designers will meet you at an initial consultation and thereafter prepare a design drawing and plan in accordance with your specifications for the project.
Our designers will take measurements, photos, grade and analyze the property. When the design is complete, we will meet with you again to review the design drawing and make any changes, if needed. At that point, we will discuss how we can work within your budget to ensure a picturesque landscape at a reasonable price.
STEP 6 : COMPLETE
Startup and Orientation
Years ago, Landcon raised the bar for pool service companies in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. We were the first company to provide a complete set-up, orientation, and an education program for the pool owner once you have filled the pool with water. Our technician will ensure all equipment is performing properly and that all of the special features are properly set and adjusted. Then they will meet with you and your family, and help you understand how to operate and care for your new oasis, safely and efficiently.
STEP 7 : SAFTEY
Nothing is more important to us than the safety of you, your family, and friends. Therefore, Landcon Pools are designed and built to the safety standards required by city codes. Just the same, all aquatic environments have some risk.
Please remember, there is NO substitute for careful, consistent, and capable adult supervision of the pool area at all times. No child should ever be left unattended near water.
