Clayton Campus Developments
The new Northern Pavilion will deliver an exemplary, accessible venue comprising high-quality sporting function spaces and associated services that continues to transform the sporting precinct to meet the formal sporting and recreational needs of the University's staff, students, visitors and alumni. A welcoming, high-quality addition to the campus will emerge, contributing to the broader renewal and ongoing revitalisation of the sports precinct at Clayton campus.
With demolition of the old pavilion completed late 2019, construction is currently underway and due for completion in August 2020. The tennis courts will also resurfaced as part of the project, due for completion in June 2020.
The Northern Pavilion is part of a long term commitment to deliver world class multi-sport facilities at Monash
The new Chancellery building was completed in December 2019, with occupants to move into the building in early 2020. The structure will integrate with the rejuvenated Forum landscape and Sir Louis Matheson library forecourt, and complement the dynamic central campus precinct around the Northern Plaza.
The adjacent car park will be redeveloped into a landscaped area. The landscaping works will commence in May 2020, and will be completed in August 2020.
Woodside Building for Technology and Design
As part of our partnership with Woodside Energy, a new landmark building - Woodside Building for Technology and Design - will be created where students and researchers can embrace innovation, design and cutting-edge technology to develop new solutions in sustainable energy technology.
The new building will be one of the most efficient and innovative teaching buildings of its type in the world, using solar as one of its energy sources. It will house more than 30 learning spaces, including an interactive tiered collaborative space accommodating 360 people. The five-storey building will continue to drive Monash's commitment to Education Innovation.
The building will be open for teaching in Semester 1, 2020.
Victorian Heart Hospital
Australia's first dedicated heart hospital will be located in the eastern precinct of our Clayton campus, adjacent to the Australian Synchrotron.
The Victorian State Government, in partnership with Monash University and Monash Health, has committed $478 million to fully fund the construction of the Victorian Heart Hospital. A total of $543 million has now been committed to the project, including a capital and in-kind contribution of $65 million from Monash University.
The new heart hospital will have allocated spaces for Monash University students to learn, research and gain experience studying alongside industry experts. This includes training facilities for cardiac medicine, nursing and related healthcare professions.
The proposed hospital will accommodate approximately 195 beds, an emergency department, cardiac catheterization labs, specialist surgical and imaging facilities and tele-medicine services for Victorian, interstate and even international patients. The hospital will have capacity to provide 2,000 cardiac surgeries per year and 108,000 consultations and outpatient appointments.
Designed by Conrad Gargett and John Wardle Architects, in joint venture, the design takes inspiration from the tree-lined campus site, with an emphasis on opening the building to the surrounding landscape.
Early construction works will begin this year, with completion of the hospital expected in 2022.
