Design Engineering

Pre-construction planning and preparation of the drawings are integral part of every project. Professionally engineered design comprises all important information, and as such, it is the most essential document for the client and contractor. CENTROPROJEKT GROUP has gained many years´ experience in the design of construction projects. To ensure application of innovative technologies and modern design methods in each of the design disciplines, there are ad hoc teams of professionals set up for every type of project.

2. Preliminary Design

This design stage includes an architectural design reflecting local zoning codes. It covers all important component parts of the project, ranging from the structural engineering issues through the building´s structural systems and layout to utility services and induced investments.

The Preliminary Design reflects all essential area/space requirements for the planned machinery units.

The Preliminary Design output is the basic layout of the building and its visualization (to give the client a better idea), including an estimate of the project cost. The Preliminary Design is often used to clearly present the project requirements and provide information for the planning phase of the project.


3. Design documents for the Land Use Permit (DLUP)

This design stage should produce all necessary documents for the appraisal of all vicinity relationships and potential impacts of the planned project.

Documents for the Building Authority Furthermore, documents setting out the fundamental vicinity relationships of the project need to be issued for the land use permission process.


4. Design documents for the Building Permit (DBP)

This set of documents represents the basic design stage that clearly defines the project in terms of its volume, structural systems and overall technical concept.

DBP coordinate basic concepts of the civil and mechanical parts of the project and define the concepts in each of the disciplines involved in the project.

The DBP´s main objective is to specify all requirements for areas, spaces and energies and prepare a submission package for the building authority and other approval authorities.


5. Tender documents (TD)

This design stage is to be completed if a call for tenders shall be applied by law or if the client decides to apply such form of the contract awarding process.

The tender package includes a bill of quantities that is issued to tenderers to allow them submission of the pricing of the project-specific measured quantities of the items of work. Information from the completed Building Permit design package is used here.


6. Detailed Design for Construction (DD)

The detailed design includes working drawings and specifications needed for construction purposes.

It is just this design stage in which full design details for all project items are provided.

A good detailed design is more likely to lead to a good project deliverable. The package is issued either by the designer or by the building contractor.


7. As-Built Drawings (ABD)

The set of as-built drawings is important for the operation and maintenance purposes as well as for the repair or renovation work, etc.

The contractor shall issue all necessary final documentation (as-built drawings, product certificates and declarations of conformity as well as operation and maintenance manuals).

Supply Contracts

Every delivery and installation of the pool water technology systems begins with placing orders with the manufacturers or sellers of the equipment, components and materials.

We focus on effectiveness
Our team conducts market research for price analysis every year and carefully checks the quality and references of the manufacturers. These are our key criteria for the selection of suppliers.

When selecting a manufacturer of the pool water technology components, we place high demands on the quality and harmlessness of the product and its compliance with applicable laws.

Design - Coordination - Success
The outdoor installations require careful coordination between the building trades and pool technology installers.

The indoor facilities are even more complex in terms of coordination of the work tasks. Here it is necessary to strictly adhere to the design documents. Continuous refinement of requirements for the work progress and time coordination between own staff and other trades is the right way to success.

Installation of pool water technologies
The installation of pool water technology systems is very specific due to its complexity. The predefined workflow steps for the installation of component parts must be strictly followed during the installation.
Ambient air temperature and humidity are limiting factors in most cases. The glueing of vinyl pipes and the welding of DLW liner require a minimum temperature to complete a waterproof joint. Poor weather conditions may lead to forced interruption of the running work, and thus cause delay in the opening of the whole complex.

Considering all limiting factors during the installation, we carefully plan the deadlines, which also include occurrence of adverse weather and its impact to normally scheduled work.


Regular maintenance of the pools and swimming facilities is a necessary prerequisite for keeping the pool water healthy and making it crystal clear. CENTROPROJEKT GROUP provides waterpark operators with a full range of services related to water sanitation and pool systems maintenance.

Our service engineers winterize and dewinterize the pool water technologies on outdoor pools.


We provide our customers with maintenance services also if a defect on the pool technology system occurs or if the pool water quality is changed, and our technical expertise is needed.


Pool Water Technologies

For Centroprojekt, pool water technology systems are the most important part of the entire pool design. Setting up a top-quality filtration system and/or selecting the most optimum technology for the pool is crucial for us and we are particularly attentive to innovations and workmanship.

Filtration & Sanitation of Pool Water

Keramické bazény

Filtration and sanitation of pool water is integral part of each pool system. Public pools are exposed to relatively large amounts of load due to contaminants that are brought into the water by visitors, and therefore pool water needs to be filtered and treated on a continuous basis.

Types of pools according to materials used

Ceramic pools

Keramické bazény

Ceramic tiles were the most common surface finish, especially for the indoor pools in the past. Ceramic tiles offer a wide range of colours that can perfectly accentuate the interior of the indoor water parks. Based on innovative production processes and a variety of sealants, ceramics has become a very interesting material. Considering the nature of the material and its time-limited resistance to climate effects, it is mostly used for the indoor pools. The waterproofness of the ceramic pools is achieved, as a rule, by applying a waterproofing screed under the tiling.

Vinyl-liner pools

Foliové bazény

Liner pools are a very good alternative to both stainless steel and ceramic pools. The liners used for the pools feature a geotextile backing that helps enhance mechanical resistance of the liner against damage. Contrary to ceramic tiles, liners are well-proven materials for the outdoor pools as they are weather-proof. Compared to stainless steel pools and ceramic pools, liner pools are the most affordable option. They are advantageously used for renovation projects where the flexibility of the special liner can eliminate minor deformations (cracks) in the concrete tank of the pool.

Stainless steel pools

Nerezové bazény centroprojekt

Stainless steel pools are nowadays widely used for both outdoor facilities and indoor water parks. Higher investment is balanced by a long service life and easy maintenance of the stainless steel surface. Proper pool hydraulics is ensured via distributed flow of water though the bottom inlets and outlets. The stainless steel pools offer high user comfort accentuated by integrated water attractions. The stainless steel pools are self-supporting structures. They only need reinforced-concrete strips to which the wall supports and pool bottoms can be anchored. The indoor pools require a coordinated connection to the load-bearing structures of the building.

Water Attractions

All attractions, including water features, air systems or other types of attractions, always attract new visitors to the water parks, outdoor aquatic centres or indoor pools. They offer a wide range of activities commencing from relaxation through the release of tension and body stretching to adrenalin experience. At the same time, they are fun for all ages. A different combination of attractions, their number and layout together with clear and chemically safe water make every water park, outdoor complex or pool a unique and great place for the whole family.

Open and tube slides

Both the open slides and tube slides are built in different configurations that are fabulous for little kids and families as well as adrenaline seekers. The slides are the most demanding attractions in terms of space requirements. If they are integrated in the project from its very beginning, they help enhance the attractiveness of the park. The most commonly used materials for the production of waterslides are GRP and stainless steel. The slides can be divided into several categories according to their structural parameters. Their structural design is subject to strict safety standards.



Great variety of slides installed at the outdoor pools and in the indoor and outdoor water parks offers a lot of fun and adrenalin for visitors, and if the slides are made from stainless steel, further positive features include modern design, excellence and an extremely long service life. Great variety of slides installed at the outdoor pools and in the indoor and outdoor water parks offers a lot of fun and adrenalin for visitors.



The underwater attractions are placed inside the pool tank. Visitors do not need to leave the pool, they just move to the attraction and relax.



The above-water attractions usually include spray jets or overflow features with stream of water falling down to the pool. They make the pool environment more varied and offer fun and relaxation.
