CONSTRUCTION START TIME:
Once your approvals are granted, we may need around 6-12 weeks to get started due to a construction backlog. Backlogs in our schedule have been caused by extended lockdowns (Covid-19), La Nina weather event, relentless rain, material shortages and labour shortages experienced industry wide.
Please note that you are responsible to provide us with access to amenities, power, water, waste bin at all times. ADDITIONAL CONCRETE WORKS SURROUNDING POOL:
Any additional concrete or hard surfaces that you are planning around the pool or as part of landscaping should be noted and included in the plans for approval from Council or Certifier. Not showing these intended scope of works on the plans may mean additional delay and cost to the owner with the overall completion of the project. SOIL REMOVAL AND WASTE MANAGEMENT
There are a few options with the soil removal. If you require us to engage a contractor on your behalf can you please ensure the WASTE MANAGEMENT REMOVAL WAIVER document enclosed is marked and returned. Alternatively, the soil can be stockpiled on site adjacent the excavation for the owner to manage independently. DEWATERING – PURCHASE A PUMP
Dewatering the pool is your responsibility. We recommend Bunnings or other retailers like Reece Plumbing if you want to get set up from day one. The excavation must be keep completely dry at all times and this dewatering must continue throughout the construction process when the shell has been sprayed. TEMPORARY FENCING
If you don’t already have temporary fence ordered with us, you will need to plan this in preparation to be erected on the day of excavation. Please note that the final occupation certificate and pool usage is not permitted until the permanent fence is erected so it’s a good time to plan for permanent safety fencing as soon the construction program is locked in. COPING TILES, WATERLINE TILES, SURROUNDING PAVERS
There may be delays with tile supply from retailers as most stores are backlogged from months of lock down and also stock shortages. If you need any help with this or want to plan early, please let us know.
