MARABELLA - Las Colinas - Irvining, Texas.

Client:  Jefferson Properties, Inc. (JPI).

This large upscale Multi-Family Community was built in an area of the Dallas, Texas area where the SOILS are extremely expansive.  The grades in this Pool Area were extreme....so, the pool design really needed to have 3 tiers to work here.  Also, it was critical to get a Structural Engineer involved to ensure that the pool construction and details would stabilize the pool in very expansive soils.  The Structural Engineer added approx. 25 concrete piers under the pool beam....and those piers extended down to rock.  The pool deck is "Pavestone Pavers" on sand...as again, the soils are very expansive and this seemed to be the best solution for a pool deck.

The quality of this photograph is "poor". I'm trying to locate a couple of better quality photos that I took soon after the project was completd....back in the mid-90's.
