Who We Are

00001-min_optEstablished in 2008, Minke Avant-Garde is one of Melbourne’s leading bespoke concrete pool & spa builders.

Constructing a small number of pools each year, the focus is on quality over quantity building practices.  That quality of work is demonstrated in every pool, spa, and waterscape designed and completed.

Minke Avant-Garde is jointly owned and operated by John Negri, with 30 years experience in the Pool & Spa industry, holding both a Victorian Master Builders Accreditation and a Registered Victorian Building Practitioners Licence – and Brooke Pollock, with 20 years of Project Management experience with both multi-national and publicly listed organisations, holding a Bachelor of Business Degree from Melbourne University.

Together Brooke & John bring a level of professionalism, experience and competence that few other swimming pool companies have.

As well as repeat domestic clients, most work is referral based, having established long term relationships with some of Melbourne’s leading architects, landscape designers and builders.  These ongoing relationships are a testament to the exceptional standards of communication, client engagement, service driven thinking, and most importantly delivery of the highest quality pool or spa.

Minke Avant-Garde has built or renovated some of Melbournes biggest pools-and some of Melbournes smallest.  Regardless of the scope, Minke Avant-Garde prides itself on delivering on-time, within-budget, to-spec, and hassle-free.

Minke Avant-Garde is proud to be SPASA accredited member.
