Planning & Conceptual
We don’t mind heading back to the drawing board as many times as it takes to bring our clients’ vision to life. Our engineers even help clients dive in with their eyes wide open by providing estimates for water loss and usage, heat requirements, power requirements and more.
Water Circulation & Treatment Engineering
From filtration and pumping to chemical treatment and flow characteristics, a laundry list of factors go into creating clean water. With resources like sophisticated hydraulic modeling software, our team takes advantage of state-of-the-art technology, industry best-practices and a customized approach to ensure crystal clear water to the very last drop.
Hydraulic Analysis & Modeling
Water is a dynamic and complicated force to be reckoned with. Our team of experts save clients time and money by predicting how water will behave to design an efficient system that does what it should.
Aquatic Life Support Design
Designing an environment where the world’s most exotic creatures can thrive is a tall order, but our uniquely qualified team is always up to the task. Our engineers seamlessly navigate everything from open to closed systems and freshwater to saltwater. Intimate knowledge of various system types ensures that every dolphin, hippo, fish and flamingo is happy and healthy.
Our team makes sure that water always stays where it should. We know every trick of the trade necessary to prevent movement, shrinkage or cracking to structures submerged in a body of water.
Power & Controls
We won’t leave clients hanging after their water feature is installed. Our team puts the cherry on top by providing a fully integrated controls system for a complete design package, providing full functionality for each operator.
Areas of Expertise
Waterparks, Lazy Rivers & Rapid Rivers
We’re passionate about producing “world’s first” and “award-winning” aquatic experiences across the globe. Our seasoned engineers tapped into that passion to create the world’s first downhill rapids at some of the world’s most sought-after pieces of paradise: the Atlantis Resort’s Aquaventure Waterparks.
Pools & Spas
Our brilliant engineers put pen to paper and made way for the world’s deepest dive pool. At 60 meters deep, Cloward H20 made it possible to plunge to the depths of nearly 200 feet and explore safe, clean and clear water.
Surf Parks, Whitewater Courses & Wake lakes
We thought inland deserved some ocean, so we headed to Austin, Texas to create the first surfing lagoon in the U.S. This 20-acre surfer’s paradise runs on nothing but rainwater run-off, a one-of-a-kind water treatment system and passionate athletes.
Aquariums & Marine Parks
Our talented team of engineers pushed themselves past simply creating clean water to master the specialized science of designing clean water systems that keep even the most fragile aquatic life healthy and comfortable. We’ve executed this delicate balance with millions of gallons in aquariums throughout the world.
Lagoons, Rivers and Waterfalls
It’s hard to go wrong when you combine first-of-its-kind aquatic engineering with animatronic dinosaurs. We stepped up our game and created the water treatment and engineering design for Universal Studios’ Jurassic Park River Adventure, circulating more than 1.5 million gallons of water and home to the largest theme park water decent ever constructed.
Fountains, Splash Pads and Specialty Features
We’ve done everything from sculptural and ornamental fountains to intricate and interactive splash pads. Cloward H20 carefully engineers each feature to produce safe and clear water year after year, without the hassle of unnecessary maintenance.
PLANNING & CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
Bringing us in at the ground floor of your project will help us take even the most out-of-the-box concepts and bring them to life. We’ll work with you to explore constraints and brainstorm creative solutions, saving you time, money and the headache of complications down the road.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT & CONSTRUCTION DOCUMENTS
We provide each client with a dedicated team of engineers, project managers and skilled craftman to make sure your project is finished on time and within your budget. Plus, our comprehensive Construction Documentation Package keeps things simple. A detailed layout of every feature and component paves the way for competitive bidding and permits, and 3D modeling ensures a higher level of accuracy for fewer changes during construction.
We go to bat for our clients throughout the entire construction process. We know the ropes, and provide sourcing, bidding and permitting assistance alongside construction site visits and supervision to help our clients avoid costly errors.
COMMISSIONING & START-UP
We’re invested in clients’ projects from the first inquiry and through to opening day. Services like On-Site Startup Assistance, Feature-Specific Startup, Aquatic Life Support System Startup and Operations & Maintenance Training make each project unveiling a success and keep things running smoothly for the long haul.
