January Newsletter 2023
We are back! After a great break, we are back into the new year and have hit the ground running. There was no easing back into it for us as we started new projects and also had some new employees start. The team started back on the 9th January with a goal setting meeting for the year and to discuss the Christmas party which took place on the final work day of 2022. The less said about that the better, there were many sore heads!
NEW WAGGA WAGGA PROJECT
We have recently won a project supplying and installing Vitradual cladding at the new Wagga Wagga Hospital car park. Teaming up with Locker group, we will be delivering this project for ADCO. This is an exciting project for us to be involved in as it’s in regional NSW as we look to try and expand our reach in 2023.
The project has recently started and we will look to complete the project within the next 4-6 weeks.
The start of January saw long time employee Matty Cole head over to Norfolk Island for a couple weeks to help Project Coordination in building a new covered outdoor learning area for the Norfolk Island Central School. This was an extremely inspiring project for Wainwright Facades. To be able to work on such a small island in the pacific ocean in between New Zealand and New Caledonia adds a new dimension to our business as we look to try and win more projects like this one.
Norfolk is known for its pine trees and amazing scenery. Luckily it wasn’t all hard work for Matty as he got to go fishing with the locals and take in the laid back culture. We hope this isn’t the last time we get to go to Norfolk!
APPRENTICE OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Adam Housden for taking out the Apprentice of the Year in our prestigious Apprentice of the Year Award! Adam took home a cash prize, custom engraved glass and got his name on the shield. Adam has been an integral part of our growth this year. Director Joseph Wainwright said “Adam is a crucial member of our team and has been an extremely fast learner. His work ethic is what makes him stand out. It’s nice to see a young man with so much drive and hunger to work. I am excited to see where his career can go”

BEER PONG CHAMPS
Just before Christmas we held our inaugural beer pong comp where we had over 20 teams of two enter. The $850 prize pot was taken out by Nick Tankey and Jack Sutton this year who were on another level every time the pressure was on. It was a fun night and we hope the reigning champs are back next year to defend their title. There is talk of practice sessions before the competition next year from some of the Wainwright employees so the standards might be higher for the 2023 comp.
