Our Process — Swimming Pool Construction Brisbane

Have your heart set on a swimming pool at home? With the construction of a new swimming pool you’ll not only enhance the value of your property — and its appeal to homebuyers if you ever decide to sell — you’ll also enliven and invigorate your lifestyle.

Leading pool builder, Bellevista Pools, specialises in the design and construction of inground swimming pools in Brisbane. With over 35 years’ swimming pool construction and design experience, our fully-qualified pool builders create beautiful swimming pools that make Brisbane, with its gorgeous climate that’s perfect for relaxing by the pool, the place to be.

From Concept To Completion

As Brisbane pool construction specialists, we combine innovative swimming pool designs with expert workmanship to create swimming pools that are defined by architectural excellence and incorporate the latest pool technology. While timeframes will differ from project to project, we’re well-known for delivering fast turnaround times while ensuring no detail is ever overlooked.

Design Stage


Before 
pool construction gets underway, we first meet with clients to inspect the proposed site and gain a comprehensive understanding of their requirements. In addition to discussing pool designs — your preferences and our recommendations — we also need to conduct a property assessment that includes a discussion and analysis of the following: 

• Suitable locations and variables (slope, gardens and trees, distance to house, etc.)
• Aesthetics of the immediate area (including current landscaping and future plans)
• Existing services (electricity, gas, sewerage, water, etc.)
• Practical challenges
• Compliance issues 

During the design stage, we’ll discuss all issues relevant to your pool construction project before presenting you with a design. The design isn’t finalised at this stage, we’ll continue to refine it until we’ve created a swimming pool design that ticks all your boxes.

The design stage is an important part of the process, as we need to make sure the design is accurate before seeking approval for the swimming pool construction. Brisbane clients will find we’re with you every step of the way throughout the design stage to ensure you’re 100% satisfied with the design of your new pool before the approval process begins. 

Approval Process

Generally, council planning approval isn’t required for the construction of a residential swimming pool in Brisbane. However, some swimming pool construction projects may require local council approval due to zoning regulations. Both building approval and sewerage/water supply approval are required before construction work can get underway. Bellevista Pools will manage these approval applications on your behalf.

Construction Stage

Once we’ve received the certification and approvals, the construction process begins. After marking out the location and shape of the pool, excavation begins, followed by:

• Safety fencing
• Formwork & steel fixing
• Plumbing installation
• Concrete pour
• Tiling, paving, etc.
• Electrical & equipment installations
• Permanent fencing
• Surface preparation
• Interior lining
• Final clean
• Fill and pH balance
• Handover

After that comes the handover and you can start enjoying the many benefits of having a swimming pool at home.
