Introduction to the group


The Enovagroup has been formed by Tim Gurnett, founder and owner of Pebblepools, in partnership with Alan Jones, a US and UK-based entrepreneur with an active interest in the Algarve. Evolving from the established framework and working practices of Pebblepools, the group represents an expansion into the rapidly emerging new technologies of Renewable Energies, Information Technology and Building Control Systems. Specialising in design, consultancy and installation the group will serve the private and commercial sector, from conception to commissioning, in these very specialised areas.

Living with innovation

Our ethos

E nova g r o u p


Environmental awareness and technological progress are set to change construction philosophy and techniques more in the next five years than they have in the last fifty. This move to intelligent, economical and ecological solutions will be driven by an irresistible combination of legislation and consumer demand. These new technologies, if embraced and utilised correctly, will create a new level of living comfort and well-being whilst maximising the efficient use of the world's natural resources. The Enovagroup has been created to provide solutions which help us live in harmony with nature through the effective use of technology.

Traditional & freeform swimming pool building

01. Swimming pools

E nova g r o u p


Pebblepools was launched in 1994 with a single, core principle at the heart of it's foundation: To import the best of worldwide pool building technology to Portugal and bring a completely new product range to the market. By the beginning of the 21st century the principle was firmly established but the demand was so great that it became clear that rather more than just a pool building business was developing! Pebblepools as a company had grown into "the Pebblepool concept" both here in Portugal and throughout Europe. Pebblepools are the exclusive Portuguese licence holders for PebbleTecÂŽ products and practices and are experts in the "shotcrete" method of concrete projection. This combination enables them to offer the highest possible guarantees, the most reliable build schedules and unique design possibilities. Pebblepools' work ethic and philosophies form the heart of the Enovagroup. They are now able to offer a new generation of pool solutions by utilising and maximising the extra resource available within the group and focusing on environmental and economical solutions to pool heating and remote and automated control systems.
