Gallery 1: Construction Phases

Excavation: Pool layout is established, filtration equipment location marked,earth removal, and form work that will shape the remainder of the gunite shell.

Steel: The steel structure is the backbone of the gunite shell; in-floor plumbing will be in place at this point. A rebar reinforced grid of 3/8" and 1/2" steel 6" to 12" on center defines the pool and spas floor and walls.

Gunite: Shotcrete is a proven and time tested concrete application technique that has been practiced for over one hundred years and has not needed modified for fourty years.

Shotcrete comes in two basic forms: dry mix (dry gun) and wet mix. Dry mix also known as gunite augers together sand and regular cement. The mixture is blown,via continuous feed machine ( the gun) using extreme compressed air directly to the nozzle where water is monitered and added. The mixture is blown pneumatically, encapsulating the steel enforced walls and floor. By adding only the necessary amount of water required for hydration, superior strength and one and a half time the density of conventional poured concrete or wet process shotcrete is achieved.

SSG is introducing many new interior finishes for 2007 that include a color quartz that is smooth as plaster, We are also offering exposed aggregate with a polished finish, and our original exposed aggregate. The exposed aggregate finishes all carry the lifetime warranty and there are many new colors to choose from.

Plumbing: Expect several plumbing phases during the project starting before the steel, again before gunite, and possibly setting equipment after gunite. Click Here to view some of our Commercial Mechanical work.
