Clayton Campus Developments

Northern Pavilion

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.

The purpose of the project is to replace the existing Northern Pavilion with a new structure servicing the tennis courts and new synthetic sport fields. The current tennis pavilion will also be demolished, consolidating all sport requirements within the two-level pavilion. Change room and equipment storage facilities will be provided on the ground floor of the new pavilion, while function and viewing space will be available on the second storey.

Construction will begin on Tuesday 3 September 2019, with the demolition of the existing soccer pavilion to commence before the Semester 2 Swot vac and exam period. The tennis pavilion will remain until after project completion.

Synthetic Sports Field - Sand Replacement

From the first week of October to the start of December, the Buildings & Property Division will be replacing material within the synthetic sports fields.
Works will be carried out between 7 am – 5.30 pm during this period, however all works to replace the sand is weather dependant.
During this period, the synthetic sports fields will be unavailable for use.
To ensure efficient water drainage, we will be replacing the sand currently used in the synthetic layering. A small vehicle will be driving over the synthetic sports fields to replace the sand, and we expect the vehicle to have minimal noise impacts while works are underway.

Chancellery Redevelopment

Work has begun to upgrade the physical work spaces of the centrally located Chancellery buildings. The revitalisation of these original 1960s buildings will alter the floor plan to support a more integrated and aligned way of working. Flexible pods, collaborative office and meeting spaces will improve the quality of interactions between staff and key partners and with students.

The completed Chancellery buildings will integrate with the rejuvenated Forum landscape and Sir Louis Matheson library forecourt, and complement the dynamic central campus precinct around the Northern Plaza. Buildings 3A and 3B in this location will commence demolition and development works in October 2017.

Estimated completion for the project is mid-late 2019

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.
