Float Center Construction Package

Charlie Dobson
“The Construction Packet is one of the best investments I’ve made since deciding to open a float studio. Orchestrating all the unique needs for contractors is as easy as handing them the packet and asking if they have any questions.”

Offering float therapy as a service requires places of such peace and stillness, it’s easy to overlook the amount of sweat and tears that go into creating them.

When you’re starting up, it’s common to think that you’ll be able to toss float tanks into some rooms and you’ll have a float tank business. Certainly, floatation units out there are expensive enough that it seems like they should take care of themselves.

The reality is that most of the burden of sound-proofing, salt-proofing and water-proofing rests mostly on you.

Easy to make construction mistakes will cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars in labor, materials, and lost revenue.


Wall STC RatingsWe know because we’ve been there. When we were starting up Float On, we didn’t realize exactly how destructive salt is, or how much detail goes into good build-out, and we’ve spent the last 9 years paying for it – literally. It’s cost us hundreds of thousands of dollars to close down for tearing out our original work and putting in new upgrades to the center.

Most recently, in mid-2016, we spent over a month and a half in renovations, refurbishing our two oldest rooms and finally bringing our center up to where it should have been when we first opened. This project alone cost us over $50,000 in lost revenue, not including the cost of construction (which was over $80,000).

It’s more expensive to fix things than it is to get them right in the first place.

“The Float Construction Packet continues to be one of the best resources I’ve had going through the design and construction of A Place To Float. The time, miscommunication and money saved by having this resource was incredible. If you intend to build out a proper float center, I highly recommend investing in this manual.”
