Pool design and construction for condominiums in Costa Rica
A condominium, or “condo”, as it’s often shortened to, is a type of shared living space similar to an apartment complex or housing estate, and comes from the Latin “con”, meaning “together”, and “dominium”, meaning “domain” or “property”.
The individual apartments or houses in a condominium are independently sellable but there are shared areas within the complex, such as parking lots, gardens, swimming pools, and even the streets in the estate. They are becoming increasingly popular in Costa Rica, and it’s no wonder why.
Condominiums are very common choices for holiday homes and Costa Rica is becoming a more and more popular destination for expats and holiday-home owners. They can sell for anything from $40,000 to several million dollars!
The building, maintenance, and upgrading of a condominium pool can be very complex for the owners. It’s more complicated than building a pool for a single household; there are many more factors to consider. Condominiums have to take into account the needs of all the individual property owners, not just one person or one household.
Further, condominium pools are generally going to be used more than a private household pool – there could be tens or even hundreds of people living in a particular condominium and they may all wish to use the pool regularly. This will lead to more wear and tear and the pool needs to be designed and built to a high enough structural standard to cope with this usage.
Metro Cúbico understand these challenges and specializes in working with companies and groups to build their pools. We work with you and adjust to the particular specifications and needs of the condominium from the ground up, designing a bespoke pool every time.
A pool that is fit for purpose must not only be able to cope with the increased usage, but it must aesthetically fit with the condominium’s theme too. Here at Metro Cúbico, we design swimming pools that help to take advantage of the space they’re in and the natural beauty that Costa Rica has to offer.
The service we offer is all-inclusive, meaning we also provide upgrades to existing pools. If you feel your pool has become outdated or run-down, we can rebuild and repair it to meet your standards. Additionally, we offer a regular maintenance service, which ensures your pool continues to run as smoothly and be as clean as the day it was built. From cleaning the filters to checking the pumps, we are there for you every step of the way.
Metro Cúbico is registered with the National Federation of Engineers and Architects of Costa Rica and the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP), so you know we can be trusted. Get in contact with us today to find out how we can build or improve your condominium swimming pool.
