Hi, I'm Claude!

Claude's creative expertise in the conceptual design of aquatic facilities is recognized by the successful implementation of over 700 pool design projects throughout his impressive career. Several of those projects have won national awards for excellence in design. The pool industry has grown up with Claude paving the way; he is one of the first designers to implement a zero depth entry into a municipal pool. Claude has led the majority of his projects through the public process, helping to balance the competitive and leisure needs of WTI's clients. His strong understanding of project programming and personability, together with his knowledge of design for operations, has led to many repeat clients throughout his career.


"I enjoy the challenges that each project brings: determining how to best utilize the locations and maximize the opportunities that the aquatic facility will offer while staying within a reasonable budget and timeline, which keeps me constantly thinking. Seeing the projects come to fruition makes the effort so rewarding; there is nothing more gratifying than watching a young child experience the joy of utilizing something that was once just an idea in your mind.”
