Bayswater Waves was a cutting edge Aquatic complex completed for the Bayswater City Council.  The main focus of the centre was on bringing in new technologies to create a large and vibrant facility for the general community.  Front and centre in this design was the 25 metre x 25 metre wave pool and waterslide facilities, creating unique interest in the centre and differentiating it from other facilities.  Bayswater also includings a children’s pool, spa, sauna, steam room, 25 metre lap pool, and a heated program pool, servicing all elements of the community.

In addition to the emphasis on high-technology facilities, Donovan Payne focussed heavily on creating the best possible Environmentally Sustainable outcomes throughout the project.  This included state-of-the-art ozone filtration and de-humidification as well as passive solar design including building orientation, solar calculations, and natural ventilation.  The result was a comfortable, exciting, and welcoming space, with a lower operational cost and excellent community support.
