The team at the Monash University Clayton, Doug Ellis Swimming Pool have been helping people learn to swim, remain fit, active and healthy for over 20 years and at Alchemy Construct, we’re glad to have helped this fantastic facility improve their long-standing lap pool and leisure pool.

Initial works to the pool entailed demolition of the old tiles, membrane and render from the walls of the lap pool and the adjacent leisure pool. The University took the opportunity to re-align the southern wall of the leisure pool, re-locating the lifting hoist and replacing lane rope anchors. Custom-fabricated glass reinforced panels were installed to the leisure pool, and the balance tank re-lined to ensure longevity, addressing the detrimental affect of the harsh chemical treatment in the pool environment.

Located on the Monash University Clayton campus, the Doug Ellis Swimming Pool features 3 heated indoor pools, a relaxing spa, sauna and steam area, swim shop and newly refurbished concourse.

The newly refurbished pools officially opened to the public on November 1st 2018.
