In general, once excavation begins, we can get done in around 3-4 months if there are no setbacks. Now to excavate we need permits and this all depends on each jurisdiction’s review load, practices, internal culture, and inherent bureaucratic challenges inthe review process. Sometime in a review you get items that must be corrected in the engineered drawings or nuanced issues with landscaping or zoning, among a myriad of other red flags they can raise. Sometimes you get by smoothly, sometime not so much. Regardless we will be proactive in staying on top of any issues that arise and communicate them to you. Consequently, the wait times for a permit are tough to estimate. Also, before we apply for a permit, we need to acquire engineered drawings to submit. Engineered drawings could take a month to obtain depending on our engineer’s workload. In general, get ready to invest at least 6 months of time for this project.

Yes, you need a survey but more importantly how current is the survey and what information should it have. It should be no more than a year old. Some jurisdictions allow for older ones but a survey affidavit affirming that the survey is accurate may be necessary. The survey should indicate the property lines, all easements, all utilities, (electric meter, water main, sewer or septic tank), the F.F.E (finish floor elevation), elevation of any terraces or existing deck, elevation at the property lines where the proposed pool, deck, or swales will be, flood zone information. Also, the survey must be signed and sealed, and the seal should be visible on all pages. Some surveyor resist this and since many departments are converting to all online submission it is critical to have these signature and seals visible on all pages. Alternatively, the surveyor can provide an electronically signed survey in pdf format.

If you have a septic tank yes, you will need this.

This all depends on your jurisdiction. We would be glad to discuss your setbacks and or research them for you.

If you suspect that subsurface conditions are not suitable for supporting a swimming pool, it is recommended. Usually asking a neighbor who built a pool about whether they needed a soil study or if they required demucking, or piles is a good indicator of the need for this report.

In general, the pool safety act is a requirement to help make your pool safe for children and even pets. Its intent is to help avoid the lamentable tragedies that have occurred. They consist of a combination of fencing and self-latching/self-closing gates along with a pool “kiddy fence”, a pool cover, alarm at pool, or alarm on all windows and doors that have access to the pool.

There are so many variables that a consultation is required to help you with being able to answer this.
