Falcon Pools are flying high in the awards stakes but rather than rest on our laurels with the eight accolades taken at the Master Pools Guild Excellence Awards in March last year, we have simply raised the bar.
The 2014 Master Pools Guild Awards Ceremony was held in Fort Worth Dallas in March and each year, the Guild chooses one swimming pool design to receive the Ocean Home Grand International Excellence Award, their highest honour. Falcon Pools were thrilled to become recipients of the 2014 Award for our indoor pool design at an exclusive new property in Virginia Water, Surrey.
Beating off stiff competition from American and International pool specialists, Falcon Pools’ Managing Director, Ian Storr was a very proud man on accepting the top prize at the event. “It’s just fantastic to take the trophy to England,” he said. “There’s so much talent in the pool industry in the United States and overseas and this a real achievement for us.”
The winning pool contains approximately 20,000 gallons of water and is accompanied by a luxurious sauna and steam room area. It was designed and built for a property developer in Surrey and features beautiful mosaic tiling with gold fleck glass. Ian describes this as his favourite aspect of the pool design due to the beautiful effect that it creates. He said, “our main goal was to build something out of the ordinary.”
This impressive pool also won the UK Pool and Spa Award for the ‘Residential Indoor Pool of the Year’.
And that wasn’t all, as Falcon Pools also bagged three ‘traditional pools’ awards! These included Boars Hill in Oxford (GOLD), Furzefield Road (SILVER) and Furzefield Road (GOLD), both in Oxshott.

We are extremely proud of our talented team who all contribute to our success, so well done to everyone for your outstanding efforts. Having raised the bar, we will continue to look for new ways to improve year on year. Here’s to another great year!
