Master Pools of Austin Wins Top International Award

Master Pools Guild, the largest global network of elite pool builders in the world, met in Antigua, Guatemala to announce and celebrate their annual Excellence Awards.  With approximately 150 people in attendance, this year’s Grand International Excellence Award for design was presented to Master Pools of Austin.

“The Guild is excited to see Master Pools of Austin receive this year’s top award,” shared Master Pools Guild Executive Director Dick Covert.  “This project included a 35 foot retaining wall that made it possible for the pool, splash pad and backyard area to exist.

Creating space where no space exists is a hallmark of excellence in engineering design and construction.  One few builders are willing to attempt.”

In addition to the Grand International Excellence Award, Master Pools of Austin also received a silver award for Geometric swimming pool design and an Outstanding Award for swimming pool remodel.  Like the Grand International Excellence Award, the Outstanding Award for pool remodel is presented to only one pool each year and is the highest recognition given within the organization.

“Master Pools of Austin is a division of Atlantis Aquatics Group, a company with an impressive list of commercial projects.  This experience is an obvious asset to their residential division.” Covert stated.  “We are looking forward to seeing what they do next.”

Master Pools Guild members are exclusive in their areas and are carefully selected based on their ability and reputation as an elite custom pool builder in their region with a specialization in custom concrete construction for the majority of their pools. They must be craftsmen, operating with a strong commitment to high quality, customer service and good business ethics. The Master Pools Guild is an international organization whose primary goal is to build the most beautiful pools in the world. For more information visit
