February Newsletter 2019
February has been another busy month, we moved workshops into a bigger and better space in Hume, launched our new price calculator and have been pricing some exciting jobs which will hopefully happen this year.
We HAVE MOVED
We grew out of our old space and have moved to a bigger workshop in Hume, ACT. We are really excited about this move because it means we can work on bigger projects, it has given us space to create a fantastic office space overlooking our workshop and it also has a showroom space for you to come and visit and see our products in person. Get in touch if you want to arrange a visit.
Our new address is Unit 5a, 15 Sheppard Street, Hume ACT 2620
NEW PRICE CALCULATOR
Ever wanted to get a quick estimate of our panels to decide which panel or timber species to add to your project? Wellington Architectural now have a price calculator on their website - www.wellingtonarchitectural.com/price-calculator
Note pricing is for manufacture and supply of timber panels only. Wainwright Facades installation costs will be additional.
Custom panel designs are not able to be priced through the calculator. Please email us or fill in the quote form on the website for a project specific quote.
The pricing calculator is a guide only. Prices are subject to change on the project quote.

Did you know we also install CORTEN? For The Linkat Ginninderry we installed Corten steel cladding as well as recycled and charred messmate timber cladding externally.

Than you have the knowledge and experience of the tradesman always pointing the team in the right direction, and what about the girls in the office with their amazing artistic flare and passion leading the companies design and keeping things so organised. But we can’t forget about our fearless leader moving across the world, starting his own business and leading with an iron fist of determination. This company is like an onion, so many layers.
Q. What quote or motto do you live by?
A. I like to move it move it
BUSINESS CLEAN UP DAY RECAP
On Tuesday 26 February 2019 Wainwright Facades employees took part in Clean Up Australia’s Business Clean Up Day. We cleaned up the Remembrance Nature Park in Campbell, taking action to protect our local environment and help clean up before rubbish pollutes our precious parks, bushland, waterways and oceans and kills our wildlife.
In just over an hour we had cleaned up the entire area we allocated for our team, collecting 5 bags of rubbish and 2 bags of recycling. It was a great way to participate in the community and keep the places we love to use looking beautiful for everyone.
See more photos from the day here.
