JUNE Newsletter 2019
This month has been exciting as we have taken on 2 new apprentices! We are still looking to expand our team with a number of big jobs coming up later this year so please get in touch if you are interested in working with us. We also got to photograph our completed work at Brindabella Christian College (which looks incredible!) and we volunteered our time to help Marymead on their mulch program for the first time in what we hope will be a longstanding partnership with Marymead.
BRINDABELLA CHRISTIAN COLLEGE GYMNASIUM
We are really excited about the recent completion of the new gymnasium and hall at Brindabella Christian College. This project is our first job which uses a customised perforated panel from Wellington Architectural on such a large scale. The custom designed perforated ceiling and wall panels were a collaboration between SQC Architecture and their acoustic engineer to maximise the acoustic qualities inside the building.
Find out more about the project here.
MaRYMEAD MULCH PROGRAM
We are proud to be partnering with Marymead to volunteer our time and skills on Marymead's urban land community harvest (mulch) program. Our team jumped at the opportunity to give up their Saturday morning to build some chicken runs so that the chooks can arrive next week. We are looking forward to going back to help out on a few other projects which will greatly benefit the productivity of the farm and help out the mulch team.
Marymead is a not-for-profit organisation servicing the ACT and southern and western regional areas of NSW, and has been delivering a range of high quality, family support services to children, young people and their families since 1967. Based in Stirling, mulch is a horticultural social enterprise supporting adults with disability to engage in a productive urban farm, promoting skills development and community connection.
MEET THE TEAM - JOSEPH WAINWRIGHT
Q. What has been your favourite project to date and why?
A. Favourite project would have to be MLC School project in Sydney. The design was amazing as was the whole crew on the project.
Q. How do you spend your free time, what hobbies?
A. I love meeting up with the work boys outside of work, always exciting. I’m also a big sports fan. Love watching the brumbies or some local footy and running my eye across some statistics. If I’m not there, I’ll be in the kitchen as I have a passion for cooking.
Q. If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you do?
A. I’d fly my family out to Australia business class and take them to the dock for a parmy. Then fly my mum home when she tries to stop me drinking too much.
Q. What’s your favourite food?
A. Being a part-time chef, I have a very refined pallet. I enjoy a nice eye fillet steak (medium), mash potato with red wine jus and green beans, washed down with a nice cider (Thatchers Gold).
Q. Who has the worst habit in the company and what is it?
A. There are a lot of bad habits floating around to be honest. Reece losing tools (mine or his), George asking me 450 irrelevant questions before asking if he can have half an hour off. But it would probably have to be Matty Cole letting you tell a 5 minute story and then saying “sorry mate I zoned out then, what was that?”
Q. Who is your favourite team member and why?
A. I like Calvin. He’s in charge of accommodation when we work in Sydney. He doesn’t know he’s part of the team, but he is.
Q. What quote or motto do you live by?
A. No one ever became poor from giving.
