Services

  • New Aquatic Facility Design
    • A well-planned facility provides fitness and recreation – all in a safe environment. We will help you better understand the needs of your target market, clarify your goals and project the financial performance of your facility.

      As one of the most experienced aquatic facility designers in the country, Larkin Aquatics can answer your questions about site selection, facility design, special features, traffic flow, costs, operations and maintenance. Gaining support throughout your community is a must.  We will work with you to gain support and secure project funding.

  • Renovations and Additions
    • Renovating an existing swimming pool is a proven way to attract larger crowds that stay longer and visit more often – both resulting in more revenue.  From minor structural repairs to full-scale retrofits, the team at Larkin Aquatics is ready to get started. Our experts can show you how equipment upgrades, added play structures or pool depth changes can revitalize your facility.

  • Fountain Design
    • Kansas City is known as The City of Fountains. Did you know that Larkin Aquatics was the engineering team for many of Kansas City’s most famous fountains?

      A custom fountain can be a spectacular addition to virtually any indoor or outdoor space. Our design experts will help you create the impact you desire.  Whether you want your fountain centerpiece to attract attention to a particular area, provide entertainment or simply break up space in an aesthetically pleasing way, we understand this process.

  • Facility Evaluations
    • Our experts begin by taking time to understand your community’s goals and budget.  Objectively assessing your existing facilities, equipment and potential building sites will enable us to determine whether it makes good financial sense to renovate or build new.

       

  • Feasibility Studies
    • A detailed feasibility study is crucial to your project’s long-term success. We will identify what is needed to take your community’s aquatic facilities to the next level as we work with you to examine project goals, demographics, funding options, revenue projections and operating costs.

  • Conceptual Planning
    • See your ideas come to life in a detailed 3D drawing! Our experts work with you to select the pool size, equipment and water features that fit your project. A preliminary conceptual plan enables more accurate estimating of construction, operation and maintenance costs.

  • Life Cycle Cost Analysis
    • Before incurring substantial costs, it’s important to determine the most cost-effective way to meet your community’s needs. Our life cycle cost analysis outlines the total cost of facility ownership from the start of the project through its entire life span. This puts everyone on the same page, minimizing the risk of surprise expenses down the road.

  • Bidding Services
    • Larkin Aquatics is not affiliated with any suppliers, but we can help you gather competitive bids from contractors in your area. We’ll interpret technical terms and variances to make sure the bids include quality materials and cover everything you requested. Our insight will help you select the right contractors for your project.

  • Construction Management Services
    • We can work hand-in-hand with the contractors you select to see that your needs are met. Involving us in the construction phase is the best way to help ensure every aspect of your facility is built with integrity, according to the agreed upon design specs and budget.

  • Design/Build
    • If you prefer to have a single point of accountability for your entire project from start to finish, Larkin Aquatics can accommodate you. We have a select set of top-notch construction contractors we are willing to partner with to create a unified design/build team for clients who desire a single source solution.

“I greatly appreciate everything you have done for the pool project and have met our every need, every time we have asked something of you.”
