The Design Team

Our design and sales teams work together ensuring every detail is considered. Our designers are very educated, thoughtful, passionate and creative. Items such as colour, texture, flow, trends as well as wind and sun patterns are integral components of our process. After the initial meeting, a design concept is created that aims to provide you with a visual within your budget. After the design has been solidified and the project commences, one of our project managers will be assigned to be your main point of contact from start to completion.

Project Management Team

Gib-San’s Creation Centre really simplifies the planning process.

Digital presentations and photos stimulate and assist you in determining your creative preferences and options.  No other pool builder offers as much assistance.

You will find out about everything from water features to safety fencing and decking materials – all in one place. See your plan on the large whiteboard computer, marking changes while in consultation with the designer. And if you have a multi-faceted design, investing in a 3D rendering will allow you to visualize the setting as if you were walking about each outdoor living area.

Steps to a beautiful pool

The initial design objective is to assist you in visualizing how all the elements of your dream expectations fit together and into your planned space. It is then rendered into working drawings for the respective installation teams, and if required into different installation phases.

Visualize your complete backyard setting when planning a pool. Gib-San will help you create a plan that is right for your family’s lifestyle. Our design and build consultants will advise you not only on the pool shape, water features and materials, but also on how to best integrate the pool, patio, play areas, and landscaping with your natural setting.

The Gib-San Creation Process and Creation Centre really simplify the pool and landscape design challenge while maximizing the creativity to meet or surpass your expectations.

Estate pool plans are brought to life in 3-D

Investing in a 3-D presentation to review the details of a complex estate pool plan is worth it. You will be able to visualize your pool from different angles as if you were walking the property or enjoying the pool from your patio. More about estate pools.

The next steps involve making decisions on the following topics to execute the plan. Our Creation Process will simplify this decision-making process by advising you of options and their pros and cons.

We are committed to being on the leading edge of design to meet increasingly more challenging designs each year. Our designers are continually enhancing their skills with courses at Genesis 3 University, the leading design/build educational force in the international landscape and water-shape industry. Courses range from computer modeling to Feng Shui, colour theory and architectural fundamentals. This broad design appreciation ensures greater integration of the pool design with the architectural settings and landscaping.

Two sales design consultants have achieved the prestigious Society of Watershape Designers, a level, only achieved by a select few industry designers in the world.
