James F. Dunn

Aquatic Development Group


When Jim Dunn started out working in the family business building pools in high school, one wonders if he ever envisioned himself, 25 years later, as being one of the aquatic industry’s leading designers and builders. His passion and enthusiasm for creating innovative products and solutions to enhance his client’s business has resulted in a breakthrough in-depth approach that Dunn and the ADG team apply to all aspects of project management and development. A registered architect with more than 25 years’ experience specializing in aquatics, Dunn oversees all design projects at ADG and his portfolio includes many of the most prestigious waterparks in the country. His work has received numerous awards over the years including an Aquatics International’s Dream Designs award, a WWA Executive Board Award and special recognitions from IAAPA and ARDA. In 2011, Dunn was named to Aquatics International’s “Power 25,” a prestigious list of industry influencers working to establish a standard Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC).
