The product provided looked amazing and made the project complete. It is an awesome feature to have in the two buildings in the entrance and is something different in a residential build
Project Manager, Trinity Constructions (Aust) Pty. Ltd.
Joe and his team were a pleasure to deal with from the moment of design all the way through until the completion of the project.
Their design input and buildability experience was great, they were accommodating and understood the client’s brief and they were punctual in their timing for procurement and construction.
They undertook a complex timber coffer ceiling for a hair salon, which has transformed the space and given a lot of people something to look at and talk about.
I would highly recommend using Wainwright Facades for all your bespoke, highly detailed finishes and we would use Joe and his crew again without a doubt.

Being a TV producer on a home renovation show is all about working to the world’s tightest deadlines. I was given the task at the eleventh to get a timber paneling company to come on board to make a statement roof in our kitchen. I couldn’t have picked a better company than Wainwright Facades. Joseph was wonderful to deal with, understood the timeline constraints and he moved heaven and earth to help ‘The Home Team’ out. The team was incredibly professional on set and got the job done in record time. The result was absolutely amazing and I would recommend them to anyone!
Producer, H Squared TV
Having worked as a construction Foremen for 25 years I recently worked with Joseph on an $80 million apartment project in Belconnen Canberra. Joseph was in charge of the façade installation he is very professional and his enthusiasm and passion for his work is evident from the first time you meet him. The project had some complex finishes with new products along with the usual discrepancies in design on a project of this scale. Often Joe would be the one to identify the issues in advance of the work commencing. The work was always of high quality and Joes’ pride in his finish rubbed off on those working around him. Anyone who works with Joe will enjoy the experience and be pleased with the product.

Wainwright Facades recently completed feature timber panelling in the new Smoque restaurant located in the Woden Abode Hotel. Joseph’s attention to detail was second to none and he finalised most of the design himself. His commitment to getting the job done within extremely tight time frame was nothing short of incredible. Wainwright facades were a complete package – professional, efficient, cost effective and completed a high quality job. I highly recommend them for all timber and façade work.
