AUGUST Newsletter 2020
With today marking the end of Winter we are looking forward to a warm change in the weather (especially for our teams working outside on site!). We have a few projects underway at the moment so not too many updates this month.
We have been engaged to remove and replace existing cladding at Industry House in Canberra. We are working with Boss Projects Group to ensure the new cladding meets the current safety standards. Wainwright Facades will be installing 300m2 of MondoClad on the building.
