Building Process


Our Pool Building Process

At Brisbane Pools & Landscapes, we follow an efficient, safety-oriented construction process. Residential pools are subject to various approvals for safety and engineering reasons, which means having a precision process in place is necessary for successful project completion. Our industry-leading team handles everything, from safety inspections to approvals to excavation to engineering. After your first phone call, we follow up with:


1.A No-Obligation Site Assessment


At a convenient time, a member of our team will come to you from our HQ in Wynnum, Brisbane – this is the best way for us to provide you with an accurate quote for the design and construction of your new luxury swimming pool.

2. Quote Acceptance and Contract Signing 


Once you are happy with the quote, we will draw up a Queensland Master Builders Pool Contract for you to review and sign. This document details all elements of the pool construction process and payment plan.

Generally, you pay a 5% deposit upfront and then for work once each stage is completed to your satisfaction. When you build a pool in Brisbane, there are usually six clearly defined stages in the construction process, with payment due upon completion of each stage.

3. Certification and Approvals 


Once the contract is signed, Brisbane Pools & Landscapes immediately lodges all required documents for Council approval and engineering. Approval takes approximately 10 working days.

What We Need From You:

• Your Lot and RP numbers
• A copy of your house site plan

4. Excavation 


Once we have Brisbane City Council approval, your swimming pool construction starts with excavation. We triple-check you’re happy with the positioning and dimensions, then it’s time for our concrete pool builders to break ground.

5. Formwork and Steelwork


All the steelwork involved in your pool construction is inspected by engineers before the shell is sprayed.

6. Concrete Shell Spraying 


All pool spray concrete complies with Australian Standard (AS 2783).

7. Finished Shell Curing 


To ensure the best possible end result, the shell cures for 28 days before the interior finish and tiles are applied.

8. Filtration 


While your pool is curing, we install your external pool plumbing, lighting and filtration systems.

9. Tiling and Finishes 


Now we lay the pool coping tile (the tile on top of the pool), and an internal waterline tile-band if you opt for one.

10. Internal Pebbling and Finished 


Pool fencing laws require that permanent pool fencing is in place before we apply your interior finish. Our certifier will have already approved the fencing. When this is done, it’s time to fill the pool.

11. Handover 


When your new luxury pool is full and ready to be enjoyed, it’s time for the grand unveiling. We tell you what’s required in terms of maintenance, and then all that’s left to do is pop the champagne and prepare for the pool-warming party.
