This is an OWNER ADVOCATE service that allows you to have our professionals on your owner’s team so you can ask questions about things you don’t fully understand or decisions you have to make during the project. To make the pricing as fair as possible, we have designed this service to be charged to you by “service hours”. That way you get what you pay for and skip a lot of the unnecessary expense. Most projects save 5 to 10 times what they pay for this service by making educated project decisions.
This service can be contracted at any time during a project’s planning, in fact, the earlier the better. A sample of the Owners Advocate timeline and categories for services is listed below:
Initial contact by email and introductory phone call – no charge. This allows you to ask us questions about TAP’s services and how your project can benefit. We can develop a “road map” to help guide you through the entire project.

There exists a very important relationship between AQUATIC PROGRAMMING needs and the actual design of an Aquatic Facility. There are hundreds of architectural firms who can design aquatic facilities, some even have in-house aquatic engineering expertise. But few have practical hands-on experience for what is necessary to offer diverse aquatic programs that service all the community while making sure the facility is financially sustainable.
This is where Total Aquatic Programming LLC excels. There is a window of opportunity during the plan & design phase of a project to “get-it-right”. Once the plans are approved and the shovel goes in the ground, the opportunity may be gone. TAP’s mantra is Programming Precedes Design. It is very difficult to put a design in place then try to figure out what to do with it later.
There are many projects that, for various reasons, get well into design without complete knowledge of what it takes to offer the target community the programming it will want. Therefore, we developed our TAP-Owners Advocate Program and Review Services (TAP-R). Via electronic communications, TAP can review the project design based off programming plans and identify things that need to be added or changed. Our review includes both design, equipment selection based of most efficient operational cost, and programming options to make the facility a community centerpiece and recover daily operational cost.
