Since its founding in 1961, the company has focused on outdoor living featuring poolscapes. Thinking beyond standard design principles, the experts at Alka Pool approach each project from the client's point of view—from design to completion, a client's needs are first and foremost. A successful design is one that functions well for the end user while maintaining aesthetic integrity. "A poolscape is an investment," says President Carla Sovernigo. "Making sure the customer uses the pool for the long term and continues to be happy with it is our measure of success." With its natural sloping topography, British Columbia may not be considered Elevated for Success A L K A P O O L C O N S T R U C T I O N LT D . the ideal place for building pools, but the Alka team knows how to turn that challenge into an opportunity. By working with, rather than against the terrain, they are able to maximize outdoor living space and construct one-of-a-kind poolscapes. They understand that raising a site's elevation even slightly can change the way the whole space is used. Their ultimate goal is to create a smooth transition—one that ensures a client can move comfortably from one activity to the next. Whether dining, relaxing, splashing in the pool, or entertaining, the experience of going from one area to another should be fluid. One of Alka's signature designs is the elevated pool structure, which results in usable space that would not otherwise be accessible.
