Wainwright Facades Training Academy
Last month we started our Wainwright Facades Training Academy for all of our employees. The first training session was presented by HVG Facades, who came to Canberra and put together a training day for us. They went through the products they supply which include Mondoclad, Zintl & Swisspearl.
Thank you to Andrew, Mark, Neil & Roger for giving us an in depth and insightful presentation. Everyone got a lot out of it. We want to make sure our employees are the best in the business and education is the first step!
Yarra Rossa Progress
Work is progressing at Yarra Rossa with the scaffold starting to drop at the new retirement community. We have been working with Richard Crookes Constructions to install 3700m2 (total) of cladding in a mix of products including; CRS Barestone, CSR Surround, CSR Territory, VM Zinc and James Hardie Soffit Linings.
Meet an Architect – Jeremy Mather
We believe in supporting and promoting connections in our community, so we have decided to introduce you to some of the incredible architects and designers we have had the privilege of working with.
Name: Jeremy Mather
Where do you work: Mather Architecture
What did you want to be when you grew up: Architect or Marine Biologist. Whilst marine biology looked fun, I didn’t like the idea of spending most of my time writing up reports on the fun things I’d been doing. So decided to pursue my original passion of designing structures and seeing them being built.
Something you have always wanted to learn: To be a pilot. Three of my grandparents were pilots. My grandmother was an Australian stunt pilot champion.
What are you currently listening to / reading: Peter Fitzsimon’s ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’
Question you get asked the most at work: What do you think about this? An interesting question that usually gets the reply: What do you think and why?
Favourite part of the job: Working and collaborating with the amazing construction industry personnel building the structures we’ve designed!
