Landscaping is full steam ahead with natives such as coastal banksia trees complimenting other local species around the Bay Pavilions.
You can see over 4km of locally supplied Blackbutt timber has been installed as a feature around the building.
The Blackbutt timber was supplied by a local company, Cameron’s H Hardware, with the main awning features being Glulam timber from Italy.
It was the architect’s intent that the blackbutt, which is a local species, will reflect the oyster leases and jetties around Batemans Bay and it will ‘grey-off’ as the sun and rain weathers the exposed timbers.
The glulam timber on the awnings around the building will be maintained and stained on a routine basis to retain the rich timber warmth in areas where patrons enter the building.
In the aquatics pavilion, the swimming pools are now complete with lane ropes, backstroke flags and dive blocks – ready for the first swimmers to slice through a lap!
The outdoor and indoor splash areas are also going through final testing.
The carpark of more than 240 car spaces is now sealed. There will also be long vehicle parking onsite for visitors.
