conflicts with the structural, mechanical,
electrical, and plumbing systems. The ability
to do this should result in shorter schedules
and less waste-both of which benefit the
developer's bottom line.
In addition, developers can see their
projects in finished form and make quicker
decisions on changes and selections. Our
clients can, with the use of virtual reality
goggles, walk through their buildings and
see exactly what the finished project will
look like. They can make adjustments in
almost any aspect of the design they want,
all before we bang the first nail on the job.
This technology saves time, and saving time
saves money.
Sometimes, innovation in construction is
behind the scenes but makes a huge impact.
Being efficient and maintaining momentum
on a project is one of the ways a company
can distinguish itself from the competition.

A DESIGN/BUILD APPROACH TO
CREATING YOUR RECREATIONAL
WATERFRONT AREA
BY JESSICA MAHONEY
Incorporating new water attractions or
enhancing current recreational aquatic
areas in your resort is a substantial undertaking and investment to any property.
From concept to completion, they are
many factors to consider to address the
guest experience, branding, operations, and

processes holistically-putting the right mix
of attractions, landscaping, and operational
functionality together in the right way to
best reach your overall business goals.
Taking the right approach from the start
will not only help save you time and money
during development but also can help
pay off in back-end revenue-generating
enhancements. Here are five key elements to
consider for your project.
Choose a Design/Build Firm That Is
End-Result Focused.
It's all about the big picture and the overall
vision of the end-result. Hiring a firm that
specializes in both the design and build
process gives them the ability to oversee the
entire project from the beginning concepts
to the final touch. This means they can
develop their plan and see it through to
the end, making sure the final results meet
everyone's expectations and budget!

in a more intimate manner to produce the
best results. They will know exactly how
to integrate a lazy river into your setting
without spending unnecessary dollars.
Set High Expectations.
Experienced design/build firms have
garnered a reputation that calls for high
expectations. Their experience of having
a hand in every area of the project allows
them to maintain relevancy and avoid
the need to constantly update attractions,
saving you time and money.

communication manager for the Aquatic
Development Group. Her email is Jessica.

Consider the Entire Process Upfront.
Having a team that manages both the design
and build process from the very beginning
allows for less wasted time. How so? You
aren't waiting for firms in different locations
to communicate ideas back and forth.
Instead, these teams are based together and
have the opportunity to meet frequently to
discuss plans and goals.
Build A Holistic Project Planning Program.
Because of their integrated experiences,
design/build firms are able to develop
plans around varying cost constraints or
objectives and specific project parameters.
This experience leads to a stronger
establishment of relationships and trustbuilding with clients.
Choose Experience for
Cost-responsive Solutions.
Everyone wants to get the most they can
with their money-there's no denying that.
When planning to build or expand your
resort to include water attractions, you
most likely want the solution that is most
cost-effective or responsive. Utilizing a
design/build firm in this process will lead to
that goal, as these teams can work together
