PHASE II: Feasibility Study
The feasibility study provides an economic and business analysis as well as a guideline for design. Our designers will focus on the target market outlined in the study and design your facility to match accordingly. It is a very crucial starting point to building your park.

PHASE III: Master Planning
The master plan provides a layout of the waterpark size and features. It also reveals how the waterpark integrates with the overall scheme of the development, whether it is a resort, hotel, YMCA or community pool. It is imperative to bring in the entire team at this stage so that planning, budgeting, and scheduling can be addressed.

PHASE IV: Design Development
You’ll work closely with the design team during this stage to take the master plan a step further with defining the waterpark construction materials, features and theming.

PHASE V: Construction Documents

Developed in this stage are the working documents that the consultants and contractors need to make the vision a reality. These documents address code requirements and specifications and are ready for permitting and construction.

PHASE VI: Bidding/Negotiation

Once plans are in place, the next step is to negotiate the contract for construction or bid the project to several contractors. When the numbers are in we assist the client with deciding which contractor is best suited based on price, quality and experience.
