The pool was finished on time for their opening weekend. A lot goes into swimming pool construction—more than most know. Many of the pools require tolerances of ±1/16 in. (1.5 mm) due to swimming competition regulations. The plumbing system on this pool circulates 1000 gal./min (3800 L/min) with a 25 hp pump just to keep the water clean. The pool also has automated heating, chemical control, and circulation. Some owners find it imperative that their projects are completed on time. Recognizing that, they are willing to spend a little more on the company that has never had a problem meeting a project deadline. 2016 OUTSTANDING POOL & RECREATIONAL PROJECT Project Name Coveleigh Club New Pool Project Location Rye, NY Shotcrete Contractor South Shore Gunite Pools & Spas, Inc.* General Contractor DHI Construction Services Architect/Engineer Gary Spilatro, Architect Material Supplier/Manufacturer Cemen Tech Inc.,* Western Shotcrete Equipment Inc.,* Lafarge Holcim* Project Owner Coveleigh Club *Corporate Member of the American Shotcrete Association Mason Guarino started in the pool industry when he was 14, learning how to install reinforcing bar.
