Swimming Pool Services Wins 2012 Wisconsin Remodelers Award
Pewaukee, Wis. – Continuing its lengthy run of honors from professional and peer associations, Swimming Pool Services Inc. was recently awarded a Silver 2012 Wisconsin Remodelers Award from Milwaukee/NARI.
The award, for “Landscape Design over $60,000,” recognized Swimming Pool Services’ work at a home in Franklin. The project balanced multiple needs of the homeowners, and incorporated carefully-chosen design, landscape and material elements to match a new aquatic recreation center to their property.
The 2012 honor marked the third consecutive WRA award for Swimming Pool Services. The Pewaukee company is a longtime member of Milwaukee/NARI, firmly adhering to its high professional and ethical standards. The Wisconsin Remodelers Awards competition is open to all Milwaukee/NARI members.
A key challenge facing Swimming Pool Services in the Franklin project was aligning the pool with the asymmetric, unbalanced shape of the yard. The answer was a customized free-form shaped pool, enhanced by strategic placement of outcropping stones. Underwater colored LED lights added to its unique aesthetics.
The homeowners wanted amenities to make guests feel right at home. A patio area, slide, substantial shallow area and sun shelf were built in to accommodate their entertaining needs. A hot tub rounded out the welcoming space. Landscaping plants in different textures and dimensions complemented the pool’s appearance.
The designers at Swimming Pool Services worked creatively to keep the project within budget. One example was installation of a Pentair Variable Speed Pump, which cut electric operating costs by approximately 85 percent. This type of savings allowed the homeowners to invest more into achieving the desired look of the project.
The 2012 Wisconsin Remodelers Award adds to an impressive roster of honors for Swimming Pool Services. The Association of Pool and Spa Professionals recently awarded Swimming Pool Services a Gold Award and Best of Show in the 2012 “Awards of Excellence” competition of its Midwest Chapter.
“We appreciate all these honors, and the Wisconsin Remodelers Award is special because of its recognition by our local peers in Milwaukee/NARI,” said David Thompson, Chief Executive Officer of Swimming Pool Services. “The credit goes to our talented team of pool and spa professionals who focus every day on creating unique and enjoyable experiences for our customers.”
