- You already have a design or planning permission – we will give you an initial idea of cost based on your existing concepts. If this works for you, we will then create a full set of oak frame drawings for production and engineering purposes and adjust the quote should this be required. We can then begin the manufacture of your oak framed swimming pool building.
