Florida ranks among the top states in the U.S. for residential pool ownership. In 2023, more than 30,000 pool construction permits were issued in Florida, making it one of the busiest states for pool construction. With that said, the pool-building industry is a competitive market. Between tight margins and changing regulations, it’s easy to feel like you’re treading water. But what if there was a way to streamline your design workflow with the expertise of a trusted engineering partner coupled with an annual licensing program offering unlimited over-the-counter permit submissions?

What is an annual licensing program?
As a pool contractor, you wear many hats. You’re a designer, a builder, a project manager, and sometimes even a customer service representative.  Beryl’s Annual Licensing Program recognizes your workload and provides a one-stop solution to elevate efficiency and client satisfaction. Our program grants Florida pool contractors access to a library of pool plans for a low annual fee. This translates to unlimited over-the-counter permit submissions throughout the year, freeing you to focus on what you do best – building exceptional pools.

How does access to unlimited pool plans help my pool business grow?
With pool construction, efficiency isn’t just about saving time; it’s about optimizing every step, from design to completion. Beryl’s program is crafted with this principle in mind. As a contractor partner, you will gain access to our comprehensive pool plan library, featuring meticulously designed plans for mechanical, plumbing, and wall construction. These plans, created by licensed engineers, are readily adaptable to your needs.

Can Beryl’s pool plan library be customized?
Whether your niche is fiberglass shells, AVR options, or concrete construction, our pre-designed plans can be tailored to reflect your unique offerings. This flexibility allows your designs to consistently align with your brand and client expectations.

How do you minimize the permit application bottleneck?
Our stamped drawings are ready for unlimited over-the-counter permit submissions, minimizing permit approval wait times and maximizing your build time. They’re also address-independent and easily adaptable to individual projects, streamlining the entire permitting process.

Are there any hidden fees with Beryl’s unlimited permit submissions?
With Beryl, we offer transparent pricing with no hidden fees. We work collaboratively to address site-specific changes necessary for permit approval, ensuring a clear and predictable cost structure.

What new materials or construction techniques can enhance a pool’s performance and longevity?
The industry is always innovating. As your pool contractor partner, we will collaborate closely with your team to make sure any new elements and techniques are seamlessly incorporated into your pool designs.

How does building in Florida impact pool design?
Florida experiences extreme weather and high winds during hurricane season. To withstand these forces, Beryl’s designs incorporate additional reinforcement and flexible joints. Our structural analysis outlines specific design criteria.

Constructing pools on a sloping terrain requires unique experience.
Beryl provides custom angle of repose letters. These letters are essential when constructing pools on sloping terrain or in areas with varying soil conditions. They specify the safe slope angle for excavations to prevent collapse.

What are the requirements to comply with the floodplain management regulations?
An AE flood letter certifies that a proposed pool construction complies with the floodplain management regulations of areas designated as AE Zones by FEMA. Beryl’s AE flood letters assure the pool design accounts for potential flooding and that necessary protective measures are in place.

Why are drainage site plans important for pool construction?
To effectively manage surface water and prevent water accumulation around the pool area, a drainage site plan ensures proper water management and compliance with local drainage regulations.

What is the best way to integrate our pool with another backyard structure?
Integration requires careful planning of expansion joins, load distribution, and waterproofing methods. Beryl provides comprehensive plans to address proper drainage, isolation joints, and load transfer mechanisms, which are essential to prevent adverse effects.

What other engineering services can Beryl provide?
Our offerings extend beyond pool designs. We provide design services for pergolas, outdoor kitchens, screen rooms, and more. This allows you to present your clients with a comprehensive outdoor living solution, eliminating the need to manage multiple vendors.

Why should pool contractors partner with a structural engineering firm?
Beryl’s program goes beyond just technical details. We work to elevate your entire workflow and increase client satisfaction. We can provide detailed site-specific design work and drawings, making sure each project seamlessly blends with its environment.

When partnering with Beryl, you can rest easy that our team of licensed engineers will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to every project. Our designs meticulously consider all structural, plumbing, mechanical, and safety aspects. Detailed blueprints and clear specifications not only facilitate a smoother building process but also equip your crew with a reliable roadmap for solid construction.
