Permits: The first step is to submit for a building permit. We will submit early to ensure we are aware of any encumbrances that may affect design. In some rare cases Niagara Escarpment Commission or Conservation Authority approvals may be required.
Hydro: A hydro permit is required for underwater lights Access: The city may require a refundable “curb bond” and /or a letter from the developer or neighbor granting permission Cable Locates: Ontario One 1-800-400-2255 (cable, telephone, Union Gas, Ontario Hydro) to ensure clearance from buried lines. Local Hydro locates must also be requested. These locates must be completed prior to excavation. We take care of all of the above on your behalf.
Overall Design: Planning of pool, surrounding decks, and accessory buildings, etc. may be simple or very involved. Design may be done by owner, Oasis, or by a designer. Some auxiliary structures, cabanas etc. may also require a building permit.
Pool Design: Aspects specific to the pool (i.e. size, shape, depths, spas, water features, interior features of pool, equipment location, etc.)
Layout: After the design details are finalized, and before excavation begins, we layout the pool in the yard to help you visualize it and to help gain a sense of the spatial layout in the yard.
