Hot tub (soft tub) on Roof Top Deck

We're thinking of putting a Soft Tub on our roof top deck.
We're in a new build (2013), and all of the units have roof top decks.

Would this be possible?

The weight of the filled tub is approx 3200lbs + weight of up to 4 people.

Since we know nothing about your home or deck's construction I would have to say "no". That is the weight of a small car and should not be put on a roof top deck without confirming, probably with a Professional or structural engineer, that your home and deck and safely support it.
