 Our firm is seven fulltime and two part time people who are specialized in swimming pool design of all types. We were founded in 2005 by Richard C Scott AIA who has designed over 300 swimming pools in 36 years. He began as a principal in a small architectural firm in New Mexico, where he worked on five swimming pool projects over 15 years. The firm grew to become the largest firm in New Mexico. He moved into fulltime design of swimming pools in 1989, becoming the Vice President of the two largest aquatics design firms in the country.

We work nationally and have international experience in China, Lebanon and Taiwan. We speak Spanish and enjoy opportunities to use it.

We are a Professional Provider to USA Swimming Teams, recommended by the facilities department due to our experience, reasonable cost and understanding of the concepts they promote in Total Aquatic Programming. We provide economic feasibility studies, aquatic programming of the pools as well as traditional architectural services of building programs, opinions of construction cost and design concepts.

Our work on studies is aided by our early adoption of Revit software. We do our studies in Revit and are developing families for future working drawings in Revit. Although we have drawn bathhouses in Revit, pool equipment items are not yet available from manufacturers, so we are still using AutoCAD for construction documents of pools.
