Goldfish Swim School

Goldfish Swim School teaches little swimmers from 4 months to 12 years old and helps them develop confidence both in and out of the water. With over 80 locations across the U.S., Goldfish Swim School was ready to build two franchise locations in the Triangle. They knew they wanted a dependable, local builder, so Bobbitt stepped up.

Bobbitt began work on the 8,473-square-foot school on Kildaire Farm Road in Cary. The team managed project coordination and permitting and delivered a quality indoor swim school – both on time and on budget.

The owner was so pleased with how Bobbitt was performing on the Goldfish Swim School project in Cary that he immediately brought Bobbitt on board as the general contractor for the second franchise location on Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh, which overlapped with the Hemlock Plaza project.

Both were fit-up projects located in an existing retail shopping center space. This required the demolition of the existing floor and excavating and installing a 25′ x 82′ x 4′ pool along with pool equipment.

In addition to the pool, the two facilities feature a private space for parties to accommodate groups of up to 50 attendees, an in-house Snack Shack snack bar and Treasure Island Pro Shop, and an air-conditioned viewing gallery for parents to relax, work, read, socialize and watch their kids swim.
