Project Planning: Spa Project Team
Assembling the Hydrothermal Spa Team...
It is always recommended that a Hydrothermal Spa Specialist be appointed at the outset of the Project.
Without a hydrothermal Spa specialist on the team, there will always be a risk of overlooking some very basic requirements that could ultimately end up costing both time and money.
A commercial build requires not only a hydrothermal specialist but it is also very important to engage an Architect and Interior designer, preferably with spa experience.
In addition, an Operational Spa consultant should also be a key part of the team.
The whole Team will help to create the business plan; plot the flow of guests through the spa; assist in choosing the products and services required; and coordinate staff recruitment/training, etc.
"Don’t underestimate the complexity of the building services associated with a wet spa"
A hydrothermal spa based on a single team member’s personal tastes or operating experience is usually a recipe for an unsatisfactory project.
On the other hand a spa that meets an owner/operator’s vision, while incorporating industry best practices and unique customer selling points is the ultimate desired outcome.
In short, hydrothermal spa design is a complex process that requires a specialist designer with expertise in both design and engineering and who has a unique understanding and appreciation for integrating both into a single space.
Typically, lead designers on large commercial projects will employ a specialist sub-consultant to carry out the spa design
