Commercial Pool Design

Parrish Pools Co., Inc. is a Commercial Pool Builder, specializing in the Construction and Renovations of Commercial (Public) swimming pools and aquatic centers.

As a commercial pool designer and builder, we seek to identity your target audience and focus on your goals. Thinking outside the box, we offer pool designs that are specific to your facility’s objective and make suggestions for attractions that make sense for your customers.


Every pool layout can be different, depending on the audience. The layout and equipment for an aquatic center is different from an assisted living facility, or an apartment pool. The assisted living facility could be designed as a raised beam pool with therapy ladders, additional bench seating, or as multi-use therapy pool.

Planning a Commercial Pool Project

An aquatic center may be inside a natatorium or could be an outdoor pool. Generally, these are geared towards lap or competitive swimming, and may have either water features at one end, or could have a teaching area. Generally, these are multi-purpose pools. Family Fun Pools with can have any number of above-ground or below-ground Water Features, depending on the audience and budget.


Rather than the traditional rectangular pool, customers are generally seeking higher-end amenities in the multi-residential market (new developments and hotels). An apartment or community pool that targets families with children, possibilities can range from a zero-depth entrance pool with age-appropriate water features – to pools with bench seating or lap lanes in the pool bottom for lap swimming. If the facility is primarily single adults, in the case of an outdoor university pool, the design may lean more towards a balance between sunbathers and swimmers and incorporate a sun shelf inside the pool.


If the facility is primarily single adults, in the case of an outdoor pool for a university’s housing, the design may lean more towards a balance between sunbathers and swimmers and incorporate moredecking area for lounge chairs, and bench seatingfor relaxing, and possibly some below-ground water spray features at opposing ends.
