Quality Dolphin Pools Project 4
Making the most of every inch available, Quality Dolphin Pools has created an outdoor area that is a shining example of seamless indoor outdoor living and a lesson in maximising space. This outstanding project illustrates why Quality Dolphin Pools is one of the most highly respected swimming pool companies in Western Australia. The owners of the home approached Quality Dolphin Pools wanting a family pool and spa. They wanted a design that was suitable for swimming laps, while providing a wading area for the kids and a family play area in the middle. Designer Shaun Conley has responded with a multi-purpose pool that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Quality Dolphin Pools used high-grade shotcrete – sprayed concrete – and steel bars to give the pool the strength to allow the house and alfresco area to sit atop the shell. Engineering the pool walls to suit the surcharge loads of a two-storey residence meant they had to be double the standard thickness. Creating a fresh, contemporary look, the pool features a duraQuartz interior in ‘Ice Blue’, while a Rainbow Quartz finish in ‘Capri Blue’ was selected for the spa, complemented by mosaic tiles. Four Spa Electrics white LED niche lights were installed in the pool, as well as one in the spa.
A contemporary water feature-cum-planter runs along the length of the pool, providing an ambient and stylish feature that the family can enjoy even when they’re not in the pool. The landscaping softens the linear design of the pool and home to further enhance the tranquil atmosphere. Such is the success of this project it was recognised at the 2014 Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Western Australia (SPASA WA) Awards of Excellence, winning the prestigious title of Pool of the Year. This was the third time that the company walked away with the distinguished award, having been recognised in both 2011 and 2013. Throughout its 43-year history, Quality Dolphin Pools has been recognised with numerous state and national SPASA awards. A family-owned and -operated business, Quality Dolphin Pools was established in 1971.Today Quality Dolphin Pools has grown to become an industry leader, designing and building concrete pools and spas throughout the Perth metropolitan area, completing up to 150 projects each year.
