Portrait Pools attended the SPATA standards awards night and came away very successful again. Held at the De Vere Hotel in Brighton, it was a show case of the designs, construction and creations from the Pool Industry. Portrait Pools came away with a total of four gold, one silver and three bronze awards from a whole spectrum of categories, but this was not the end of their success. They were presented with the prestigious Pool Of The Year Award, and then the highlight of their evening, was to win the National Pool Contractor Of The Year 2013 for the third time!
The Pool that won the company their Pool of The Year Award, was based on a medieval theme, and was in the Residential Indoor Pools over £175,000 category. It was a particular favourite of Andrew Rutherford of Portrait Pools because of the blend of old with modern features that worked really well. It will be a challenge for the team to beat for net years awards ceremony!
Another achievement that Portrait Pools gained this year was their first SPATA Gold Award for Sustainability, which shows their customer commitment to providing energy efficient as well as stunning and spectacular luxurious pools. Their award winning pool, was built in a barn conversion in Cheshire, and used design techniques that helped the pool and bespoke spa pool to blend in with the gym and pool hall nearby. With a custom made Heatstar Phoenix climate control system, it enabled the design team to keep the temperature to the desired level required. The customer was very happy and have hours of pleasure in the new addition to their home.
This was not the only contented customer of Portrait Pools, as another customer felt compelled to write a testimonial for the team after completion of their pool project! It was their first pool purchase, and they researched other companies, but decided on Portrait Pools, which was a decision they have never regretted in the 18 months since they bought it! The full testimonial is available to read on our homepage.
One of the features of our luxury pools, that is a speciality of ours, is movable floors, and they are very popular with new customers and old! They are fitted in the pool, and can be raised or lowered to suit the user. This is invaluable for small children or family members with special needs that are learning to swim. Once the pool is not in use, the floor can be fully raised to act as a cover for the pool, making it completely safe. This is another feature that our customers like, as it means they can use the pool space for entertaining or for business meetings, and gain back the space that the pool has taken up.
