April Newsletter 2020
It is definitely business as unusual around here. We are thankful that we are still able to continue working, it just looks a bit different than it used to. We are still keeping a close eye on developments and are following advice appropriately. It is our priority to do everything we can to keep our staff, our clients and the community safe and healthy.
We are proud to be working with Manteena to install 700m2 of custom orb cladding on the temporary COVID-19 Emergency Department (ED) on Garran Oval, adjacent to the Canberra Hospital. The facility is currently under construction and is intended to be fully self-sufficient. Follow Manteena on Facebook if you want to stay up to date with the construction progress.

We have been working with our suppliers to update our products page. As a specialist facade contractor, Wainwright Facades installs a wide range of products to suit every project.

As always our team will work with you and provide you with the best advice to ensure you are using the best product for your project.
