The right project approach

Baths are operator properties - the operating costs significantly exceed the investment costs over the entire life cycle. Therefore, the offer for the user and the functionality for the operator come to the fore. Architectural design is also important, but its importance is behind the functionality for the user and operator. The right procedure increases the chances of success of a pool project.
