Florida Swimming Pool Association Announces 2022 Design Awards Winners

Nine companies receive more than 30 awards of excellence in the organization’s annual Design Awards Competition

The Florida Swimming Pool Association (FSPA) recognized nine companies who received more than 30 awards of excellence in the organization’s annual Design Awards Competition and announced during the 50th anniversary Everything Under the Sun Expo.

The annual FSPA Design Awards program gives members an opportunity to enter their pools, spas and water features for judging on workmanship, soundness of design, beauty, practicality and safety. Categories customized for Florida pool construction divide the entries by size, type of construction and features. Winners were selected by the Design Awards Committee, a volunteer group of decorated professionals in the pool and spa industry.

Lucas Lagoons of the Manasota Chapter won Best in Show for their “truly wild” multi-level pool paradise. The group garnered an additional eight awards for categories including three total Gold Awards and a Technical Achievement Award.

Other winners included Superior Pools of Southwest Florida from the Charlotte Harbor Chapter, who took home three Gold Awards for two new designs and one Residential Restoration. Ike’s Carter Pool Companies from the Broward Chapter took home three Gold Awards and a Silver Award for categories including Residential Restoration, Residential Spas and a Pool/Spa Combination Vanishing Edge.

In addition to pool and spa design, the organization recognized the Tops in Trucks division. American Pools & Spas of the Central Florida chapter won the Fleet Vehicle Graphic Award and Cypress Creek Outdoor of the East Central Florida chapter took home the Modified Vehicle Award.

“The FSPA’s annual Design Awards recognizes the excellent craftsmanship, engineering feats, innovative use of technology and outstanding quality within Florida’s pool and spa industry,” said Elizabeth McMurray, FSPA Executive Director. “These incredible pools, spas and water features are a true testament to the builders and their teams.”
