For over 100 years, Carrothers Construction Company has partnered with communities to deliver construction projects that provide long-term value to residents.

Today, Carrothers specializes in building high-end, large-scale, state-of-the-art aquatic centers and pools for municipalities and communities throughout the Midwest, including:

  • Kansas
  • Missouri
  • Nebraska
  • Colorado
  • Iowa
  • Arkansas
  • Oklahoma
  • Texas
  • South Dakota

We know pools are both an asset and a resource for your community, so we don’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach. Even before you hire us, we do a lot of groundwork to make sure you’re getting exactly what your community wants, what it needs, and what works with your budget.
