ICU EXPANSION

 

We are currently working with Manteena on a second project at The Canberra Hospital. Wainwright Facades is installing 1400m2 of Longline cladding, 180m2 of Proclad Solid and 185m2 of louvres at the ICU expansion project. 

 

This project will increase ACT’s critical care capacity of the existing ICU from 31 to 39 beds. It is a challenging project as it requires the existing ICU, which occupies part of the third floor of Building 12, to remain fully operational throughout the construction period.

 

Narrabundah Residence

 

We have started work on this incredible architecturally designed residence in Narrabundah, ACT. The project features 485m2 of cladding including Cemintel Barestone and Innowood. 

 

Designed by DNA Architects we can’t wait to see this project finished!

Thank You KNIght Frank and ISPT

 

We would like to say a big thank you to Knight Frank and ISPT who have donated trees for the month of July. 

 

“ISPT and the Knight Frank Canberra Team partnered with onsite contractors to deliver Worm Week 2021 which was initiative put on for the building community to promote our onsite worm farms and provide education around its benefits and ways the community can be involved in reducing waste to landfill. Cid Riley from Global Worming (worm farm contractor) ran tours of the worm farm at 4 National Cct and provided worm juice to be sold at a 3 day plant sale run by Instyle(precinct gardeners), who sold a range of indoor plants from their nursery. Instyle generously donated $1 from every plant sold from the plant sale to the tree planting program and 100% of sales from the worm juice (sponsored by ISPT) was also included in the donation. Instyle also provided educational plant talks that focussed on caring for indoor plants, pest and disease management and caring for the garden in the Canberra climate.”
