Skip Phillips, co-founder of the Genesis 3 Design Group, has received approval from the Architectural Institute of British Columbia to present his “Water-in-Transit Design” educational program as part of the institute’s Continued Education Units curriculum.

“It’s part of our ongoing

effort to exchange and share

reliable, verifiable education with our international colleague

organizations and their members the world over,” said Phillips, who is also president of Questar Pools & Spas in Escondido, Calif.  He has taught courses in Canada over the past seven years, but after collaborating with Canadian builder Gene Brown, decided to pursue official CEU accreditation.

The Canadian offerings will be a compressed version of Genesis 3’s regular design program. This includes a look at aesthetic and engineering challenges associated with vanishing-edge swimming pool designs, from contemporary and historical perspectives.

“The bottom line is that people building custom pool and spa systems all share similar challenges, in Canada and everywhere else,” Phillips said.

The Architectural Institute of British Columbia is dedicated to “regulating the profession of architecture within the province in the public interest.”
