The dreams, the ideas, the sketches. but plans are needed. Digging and noise, plenty of it when in the rock base. The building of the pool. The landscaping, the finishing off, the decking, the filling and then the first swim...
Several different pools designed, conceived and constructed by Midimas Services - in different sizes and shapes and depths. In different environments and with different views. Each one with their own ambiance.

The Customer's first ideas and sketches - In the end, it is the reality of the land, the environment, the orientation and the security, not forgetting the budget, which will be the determining factors. The below the surface work can often cost not be estimated very accurately without the help of an expert "Terrassier".

When in the rock base, the initial preparation cost and the sculpting of an appropriate hole can represent a major cost of the whole project. Sometimes, one has to demolish existing buildings before getting round to digging the hole. Once the ground is prepared, and the pool is marked out, the reinforced concrete base gets poured. The walls, with all their structural metalwork, bring the pool into its 3-dimensional form.
