Aspen Associates LLC Builds Award-Winning Pool

Aspen Associates LLC is a design and construction firm based in Ramsey, New Jersey. The company was founded by Michael Dommenge, who spent many years problem solving for many big name businesses and corporate leaders. Aspen Associates LLC was created as a design-construction company to complete construction models of high-demand and wealthy clients.

Before the company was a decade old, Aspen Associates LLC was contracted to construct a glass pyramid similar to one outside the Louvre in Paris. The pyramid would cover an indoor pool and was the vision of a wealthy industrialist. It was in 2007 that plans for the glass pyramid pool began.

After the pool was completed, many were drawn to its beauty. Aspen Associates LLC’s pyramid won international awards for the pool builders B&B Pool and Spa Center. The pool won the 2011 Best of Show award from the Northeastern Pool and Spa Professional Association and won a gold award in the Association of Pool and Spa Builders’ annual competition. Aspen Associates LLC’s glass pyramid also won the silver award from the Global AquaTekture Visionary Awards.

Aspen Associates LLC is proud to have been a part of such an award-winning project. Aspen Associates LLC is hired by many clients looking to find a company willing to take on a challenging project. The company’s owner does not turn down a challenge but is eager to prove he can find a solution for any construction design project. Part of the business’s model is the acceptance of only one project at a time. This allows clients to have full access to Aspen Associates LLC’s founder. It is the founder and president Michael Dommenge who works as project manager and deals with decision making at all levels of project development. Aspen Associates LLC hopes to one day have another project as challenging as the glass pyramid pool.


Art often inspires other art, and this could not have been truer in the following case: Aspen Associates LLC was contracted to design and build a unique, pyramid covered pool in 2007. Aspen Associates LLC was designed for the purpose of carrying out the visionary construction projects thought up by wealthy clients. Aspen Associates LLC’s business model is to take a “consider it done” approach to client demands. When Aspen Associates LLC was contacted about the project, the company jumped on the opportunity.

Aspen Associates LLC knew the project would be complex. The glass pyramid was inspired by the glass pyramid that sits outside of the Louvre in Paris. Of course, it’s worth mentioning that the glass pyramid outside of the Louvre was also inspired by another pyramid – the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. While Aspen Associates LLC’s project would continue the tradition of pyramid building, the company would be constructing only the second known pyramid made from glass.

The glass pyramid designed and constructed by Aspen Associates LLC is an impressive structure. One-third the size of the Louvre’s glass pyramid, the glass pyramid pool presented its own challenges, weighing 18 tons. From inside the pyramid, the client and guests can swim while looking up at the sky.

Aspen Associates LLC will only turn away a project if they are actively working on another. The company puts all their focus into one project at a time, so that high-demand clients can have full access to the company’s president and founder. Aspen Associates LLC’s president manages all details of every project, and is the single point of contact for the client.

Aspen Associates LLC’s business approach streamlines the construction process and minimizes cost to their clients. The business’s model also eliminates the need to bother clients with details they may not care about.

Some clients want to be involved in every moment of their construction project while others want to describe the finished product, and leave the detailed work and project management to someone else. For clients who have a construction project planned but want someone else to manage the project, their best strategy is to hire Aspen Associates LLC.

Aspen Associates LLC maximizes client experience by minimizing points of contact. Clients meet only with Aspen Associates LLC’s president, who possesses years of executive experience in construction and design. After converting the client’s vision into a detailed design plan, Aspen Associates LLC’s president finds out how involved the client want to be. If his client does not want to be bothered with the particulars of their construction project, President Michael Dommenge does all of the required decision making.

Aspen Associates LLC’s president has over 30 years of experience in problem solving. Once he knows what it is his client wants, he meets with necessary attorneys and planning boards. While these meetings are conducted in the suit and ties most professionals are familiar with, Aspen Associates LLC’s president shows up on the construction site in jeans and a hardhat, in order to coordinate the company’s trusted subcontractors.

As the single point of contact, clients call the president of Aspen Associates LLC with both large and small requests. Aspen Associates LLC is familiar with clients requesting changes in the middle of a construction project, so the company is ready to retool their design as needed. The company was designed to be flexible.

Many clients have trusted their projects to Aspen Associates LLC. Their construction projects are often expensive and complex. Aspen Associates LLC caters to high-demand customers by minimizing how involved they need to be, while making it easy to contact the company’s president whenever they want.

Construction projects can become complicated. Many people try to simplify the process for themselves by hiring a project manager, but the client must still meet with contractors and subcontractors to make decisions regarding their project. While some people enjoy the hands-on approach, there are many who would prefer to let others do the decision making for them, so long as their project is completed on time and within budget.

When Aspen Associates LLC was founded in 2000, it was specifically geared towards demanding clients who have super-luxurious renovation or addition projects. To simplify the building process and make it easy for clients to talk about their projects, Aspen Associate LLC clients contact the company’s president directly. He is their only point of contact in regards to the project. They can also call the president of Aspen Associates LLC with any requests or changes.

Contacting Aspen Associates LLC’s president is easy for clients because the company only takes on one project at a time. The one-project policy helps Aspen Associates LLC maintain their goal of excellence and perfection. Because their project is Aspen Associates LLC’s only focus, clients can be sure the president will not be worried or concerned with other projects, or be tied up in matters unrelated to their project.

Thanks to Aspen Associates LLC’s unique business design, many clients have been able to remain as connected or disconnected to their projects as they want. Clients who don’t want to be heavily involved in the small details of a construction project have the option to make Aspen Associates LLC’s president their decision maker. Still, even if they leave the majority of decisions to Aspen Associates LLC, they can still contact the company whenever they have questions, need information, or want to request changes. Aspen Associates LLC has had many satisfied clients in their 13 years of business.

As a design and construction firm, Aspen Associates LLC works to set themselves apart by operating under a unique business model. The founder of Aspen Associates LLC is committed to perfection and excellence, and believes his one-project policy helps his company reach that goal. By working on one project at a time, he can also better focus on his clients’ projects as both project manager and single point of customer contact.

For anyone who is familiar with traditional design-build firms, clients usually have meetings with multiple contractors. Clients meet with the firm’s president, designer, and on-site supervisors. For most clients, this is both bothersome and time consuming. Aspen Associates LLC wants to eliminate the hassle by taking all of those meetings and contact points, and compressing them down to one single individual – the president of Aspen Associates LLC.

Clients who hire Aspen Associates LLC have a single point of contact. They sit down with Aspen Associates LLC’s president to discuss their project vision and how much of the decision making they want put in his hands. Most often, Aspen Associates LLC’s clients do not want to be bothered with the particulars of their project. In those cases, Aspen Associates LLC makes all required decisions.

By leaving decision making in the hands of Aspen Associates LLC’s president, and minimizing the number of meetings clients are required to attend, Aspen Associates LLC lets clients focus on their own busy lives. Aspen Associates LLC is geared towards high-earning professionals, who often have hectic schedules. With one point of contact for all information regarding the project, and no need to meet all contacts and subcontractors, clients of Aspen Associates LLC feel free to do as they wish. They do not feel harassed by a time-consuming project. This improves their satisfaction level, even before the project is complete.

Aspen Associates LLC was founded by Michael Dommenge, who started his professional career as a project manager. The president and founder began as a construction manager for a national retailer. It was his responsibility to negotiate hundreds of retail leases in malls across the United States. In total, he oversaw the construction of over 250 stores nationwide. This gave Aspen Associates LLC’s president Michael Dommenge the skills as a project manager that would make him a brilliant business owner later.

Aspen Associates LLC’s president worked at a corporate level for many years, and was responsible for managing the maintenance and repairs for The Limited. He managed the repairs for 600 stores. Recognizing it as a business opportunity, Aspen Associates LLC’s founder created KLS Retail Services, which employed 550 independent contractors. Under his supervision, the repair contractors worked across the nation, which gave birth to today’s handyman industry.

Michael Dommenge became known as a problem-solver. This is another skill that benefits him as the project manager and founder of Aspen Associates LLC. One of the fundamental moments that demonstrated his skill in problem-solving was when he was contacted by Mervyn’s, because the retail chain had a problem with delivery drivers dropping armoires. Aspen Associates LLC’s president devised a solution in half an hour. Four days later, every one of Mervyn’s remaining armoires had been delivered successfully.

A reputation for problem-solving led Michael Dommenge to found Aspen Associates LLC. The company had the goal to complete “grand vision” projects. Aspen Associates LLC would be able to complete projects other design-build firms would be unable to complete. Catering to the needs of demanding and wealthy clients, Aspen Associates LLC is geared towards large, luxurious, and complex projects. So far, Aspen Associates LLC’s most complex project has been an indoor pool with a glass pyramid cover.

Architecture has the power to inspire millions. The world over, people have been drawn to Paris. The city has been known for both its positive and negative attributes. However misplaced a giant glass pyramid in Paris may seem, people are drawn to the blending of an old concept (pyramids) with the futuristic look of glass and steel. One particular industrialist in the United States was so inspired, he turned to Aspen Associates LLC to build his own glass pyramid to cover an indoor pool.

Aspen Associates LLC is the creation of Michael Dommenge, a man known for his problem-solving skills and reputation for never turning down a challenge. Aspen Associates LLC agreed to the design and construction of the project, in line with their “consider it done” approach to business. Before Aspen Associates LLC could begin the glass pyramid’s construction, demolition of the client’s pre-existing terrace had to be completed.

After completion of the glass pyramid, Aspen Associates LLC’s owner acknowledged that a similarly complex and costly project may never be equaled in his lifetime. However, as someone who loves a challenge and is known for finding solutions where others see none, Aspen Associates LLC will surely agree to any future projects of equal or greater demand.

In 2011, the pool with the pyramid won international awards for the pool builders. Awards were won from B&B Pool and Spa Center, the Northeast Pool and Spa Professionals Association, the Association of Pool and Spa Builders, and the Global Aquatekture Visionary Awards. In 2011, the pool was named NESPA’s Best of Show and won a gold award from the Association of Pool and Spa Builders. Aspen Associates LLC’s glass pyramid pool was truly unique, and the project included further landscaping and decorative fountains. Now, Aspen Associates LLC is waiting until another client needs a renovation, an addition, or other uniquely inspired projects completed.
