Sandquist Constructions Costa Blanca

All Interior and Exterior Building Works

Derek McLean is the proprietor of Sandquist SLU.  They are a legally registered Spanish construction company operating on the Costa Blanca that specialises in pools, terracing, extensions and garages.  He has many years building experience and has been working in Spain since 1991.  Sandquist has been trading for sixteen years and in the highly competitive construction and renovation industry they are getting it right.


Sandquist offers its customers the full package.  Say, for instance, you want a swimming pool.  You contact Sandquist and somebody comes round and measures up and gives you a quote.  You get several quotes and decide to go with Sandquist (sensible you). 

Sandquist will design the pool to comply with local legistaion and the area available.  Did you know in Torrevieja that the edge of the water in your pool must be at least a meter away from the boundary of the property?  Down the road, in Orihuela Costa, it's different again.  With years of experience Sandquist know who to see in which town hall for the correct licenses so all work carried out is legal.


How It All Works

Employees and Guarantees

All the employees are either contracted or sub-contracted and self-employed.  All construction work comes with a ten year guarantee and Derek reckons that from signing the contract to completion, barring complications, a pool can be completed in two months.

Derek said "Spring and summer are our busiest times here on the Costa Blanca.  If you were thinking of having a pool installed now is probably the best time to do it."  The reason behind this is that delays such as the entire town hall shutting down for August no longer delay work due to the necessary paperwork, the weather is still fine so rain won't add to the construction time and you avoid joining a queue of people at the height of the season all waiting for their pools to be dug.  This goes for any kind of construction work be it an extension, garage or terrace.



if you cannot move - then why not improve

If you have an improvement in mind, then consider giving Sandquist a call and discuss your ideas.  "We have taken on renovation projects like replacing an entire roof of a finca", said Derek.  "Our fully qualified experienced technical engineer will design a solution to fit your needs and supervise the entire project.  You get exactly what you want at the price agreed and guaranteed for ten years."  You may already have a pool but what about a summer kitchen, a terrace or somewhere to park the car out of the glare of the sun or the sandy rain?

Extensions to existing houses as well as building up, as opposed to out, could give you the extra space you need and increase the value of your property.  Our building company will carry out the entire job from the pool pump, the cover, tiler, plumber, roofer, carpenter and electrical work.

Derek concluded, "We've had a number of jobs on urbanisations where people want their own pools but have very small plots.  What we've found is that if you have room to park a car we can get a pool in".

Swimming Pools


From our initial contact your swimming pool is designed to your requirements.  The specification is a construction of Vaso Ceramica with reinforced iron mesh.  Compressed concrete is applied to the sides and floor by a compressor. This is a wet mix of concrete.

The building, as standard, has a stone white top layer to the pool. The interior finish has a choice of colours with a marble tile (Gresitie) with a centre border to the top.

We will install the pump filter system with an option of salt or chlorine for the correct water treatment.

The options that we offer are internal lights, roman steps and external showers which will give a complete swimming pool. Should you require any further construction work, for example terracing, walling, bbq's, summer kitchens or even pergolas then all of these extras can be incorporated at the same time.  All the construction work carries a 10 year guarantee.

Also for the convenience of all our clients we will obtain all the necessary permissions and licences from the local authorities.

For your piece of mind we ensure that all of our contracts carry a commencement and completion date which becomes part of the contract and agreement....
