Soil Decontamination and Remediation

The Hawthorn Aquatic & Leisure Centre.


The iconic Hawthorn Pool, which was constructed for the 1956 Melbourne Olympic Games, is undergoing a complete re-development that will soon accommodate the general health opportunities of residents in the municipality.

Industrial Demolition Services completed the main building deconstruction and the demolition of the original pool and Industrial Environmental Services completed the project for ADCO Constructions, remediating the site for future use.
The project highlights the advantages of Industrial’s multi-disciplinary service provision. The demolition works included removing the 50 metre pool, basketball stadium, squash courts, amenities, gymnasium, and child care centre. These works involved excavation of the two new pools–a new 50 metre pool and the new indoor children’s pool as well as fill materials originally bought to the site when the aquatic facility was built 57 years ago.

The new facility is expected to be open for business next summer.
