The company specialises in water quality management systems for fountains, swimming pools, spas, activity & surf lagoons, white water rivers, aquariums and any other challenge that involves recreational water.

Work on the Hard Rock Guitar Tower

Most recently, Cloward H2O worked on the expansion of the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood. The Guitar Tower opened in October 2019 and proved extremely popular with guests.

Cloward H2O helped to develop the 13.5-acre pool amenity area at the Guitar Tower. This included a 2.3-acre recreation lake, where visitors can enjoy water sports such as kayaking and paddleboarding. In addition, the company worked on the indoor facilities at the expansion, which include a central spa pool as well as hot and cold plunge pools. Cloward H2O also provided pools and spas for the two penthouse suites in the Guitar Tower.

Resort pools, zoos and aquariums

The company has worked with numerous luxury resorts, such as the Zulal Wellness Resort. This water-themed resort in Qatar is currently under construction. Cloward H2O is the lead water designer on the 3-million-gallon saltwater lagoon, water fountains and over 60 private suite pools.

At the historic Manhattan Beach Aquarium, the company helped redesign and engineer the entire interior of the aquarium. The site now includes 14 oceanic tanks, two freshwater tanks and a children’s touch tank.
