Fluidra offers complete 360º solutions by working hand in hand with our clients. We have a team of experts with extensive experience in the conception and design of aquatic projects to imagine your project together with you right from the start.

We propose a step-by-step approach that includes consulting, engineering and design, all in compliance with international standards and on time.

Design Phases

From the first meetings with the client, Fluidra offers advice, carrying out preliminary feasibility studies, general space distribution and user circuit definition.

Providing innovative and unique ideas for your project, within technical and monetary constraints, in line with your project brief.

Based on RIBA 2 and ACE standards, at the Concept Design stage we put forward unique, innovative ideas in line with the technical and financial framework set out in the project brief.

We add aquatic solutions and technologies to the design, pre-measuring the technical spaces and providing the required information to estimate the economic value of the project.

At the Spatial Coordination stage according to RIBA 3 standards or the Design Development stage in the case of ACE standards, we add aquatic solutions and technologies to the design by defining the requirements for the technical rooms and providing the information needed to draw up an estimate for the project.

Fluidra is integrated as a member of the design team, developing the full scope of the aquatic solution, including equipment, systems and accessories, while managing any interactions with other fields. In this phase, the solution is modeled and the entire aquatic project is documented, including the location of all equipment and elements, construction details, floor and section plans, as well as detailed lists of materials and the PIM (Project Information Model).

At the Technical Design stage according to RIBA 4 standards or the Detailed Design stage in the case of ACE standards, Fluidra joins the customer’s design team to develop every aspect of the aquatic solution, which includes units, systems and accessories, as well as managing any work in other environments.

Technologies

Throughout the design process, our experts work with some of the most advanced design tools and technologies such as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), Fluidra Live Virtual Reality (VR), and BIM (Building Information Modeling).

Fluidra also has the ISO 19650 certification for the management and use of BIM in project design and construction.

Fluidra’s team includes designers, engineers and architects who design the project in a BIM environment, using state-of-the-art technology. The end result is a 3D model of the finished installation.

Using BIM methodology has a number of advantages over traditional design approaches:
Allows investment decisions to be made by comparing the functionality, scope and cost of the solutions.
Allows the comparative analysis of energy and environmental requirements in order to choose design solutions.
Facilitates collaborative development between different design and construction teams.
Improves quality assurance and data sharing to streamline the design process
All the parties involved are aware of the installation data, from the design phase to its demolition, including its construction, use and maintenance.

Fluidra has obtained the ISO 19650 certification for the management and use of BIM in project design and construction.

This certification is part of a set of international standards that define the framework, principles and requirements of BIM in projects. This reinforces our commitment to innovation in swimming pool solutions and design, within clearly defined standards that maximize the potential of BIM technology.

Working with ISO 19650 certification means that you will have the following benefits:
Full transparency to build mutual trust.
Efficiency thanks to teamwork with our partners and customers.
Traceability of all documentation and information from project start to finish.
Continuous improvement thanks to an internal audit of the processes at the end of each project.
Mutual collaboration between customers and suppliers, which adds value and facilitates future partnerships.

CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) is a methodology based on numerical computational models. It simulates the behavior of fluids and makes it possible to predict the evolution of the physical-chemical characteristics of water over time, such as speed, temperature, turbulence and other variables.

This simulation of the water dynamics in swimming pools ensures an optimal distribution of disinfectant products, avoiding stagnant water areas and with the corresponding savings in maintenance products. It also allows the study of the water recirculation system over time, making it possible to check its efficiency before it is installed.

CFD technology helps create more sustainable and aquatic facilities, offering these additional benefits:
Ensures optimal distribution of disinfectants
Saves on water maintenance costs
Enhances user experience
Controls water currents
Makes water more sustainable
Prevents water stagnation

Fluidra Live Virtual Reality is implemented once the final design is completed and before the construction phase begins. It consists of an immersive experience in which we move through the aquatic installation of the project recreated from rendered images and 3D designs.

This technology gives us a series of advantages and benefits in terms of executing our projects:
Design integration check
Evaluation of all the space options and configurations
Preventing mistakes in the construction phase
A clear budget with no subsequent surprises
Checking the accessibility of the facility ahead of implementation
Immersive experience
