ICU Expansion – Project Completion
We have just completed the external cladding package on the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) expansion project at The Canberra Hospital with Manteena. We were engaged to supply and install Longline cladding (supplied by Lysaght), Orange Proclad 3mm solid (supplied by Aluminium Façade Systems) and louvres (supplied by Capral). The building provides an additional 8 beds to the ICU in Canberra.
The project’s bright orange features can be seen from a distance along Yamba Drive, so make sure you keep an eye out for the vibrant building. It was great to team up with Manteena again and continue our great working relationship.
Business Clean Up Day 2022
On Tuesday 1st March the Wainwright Facades team participated in Clean Up Australia’s Business Clean Up Day for the fourth year in a row. This year we cleaned up Kings Park by the lake, and in just under an hour we had cleaned up the entire area we had allocated. It was good to see that there wasn't too much rubbish to collect, however we noticed that there was an increase in the number of single use face masks being disposed of incorrectly.
It is always a great way to get our team together, to participate in the community and keep the places we love to use looking beautiful for everyone.
Australian businesses are in the perfect position to be role models for the rest of the community and be seen to take action and play their part in caring for the environment. We would love to see more businesses participating in the clean up next year!

Thank You Mitchell Insurance Management
We would like to say a big thank you to Mitchell Insurance Management who have matched our donation of 100 trees for the month of March.
“Mitchell Insurance Management are very proud of our on-going tree commitment with Wainwright Facades.
As with all Australians, the continuation of utter devastation is continuing to affect nationally via repeated, heightened weather events. Globally, if it is not us here, the world is being affected in varying regions repeatedly. Climate change is real, not just one-off in impact and as noted, heightening in intensity and repetition.
Trees, greenery and forests provide balance and continuity to our planet, we need this now more than ever. They directly affect and become the engine of eco-climate in that region. They filter clean air, they assist in the process and creation of rainfall, in turn this provides fresh drinking water to nature, habitats and wildlife. Trees help curb climate change, and importantly create homes and food for thousands of species of plants and animals.
Being involved within the Insurance industry, the statistics don’t lie, the impact of climate change is real and the more we can help with initiatives such as this can only help the long-term carbon reducing goals, we should all share.
Again, Mitchell Insurance Management couldn’t be prouder to support and partner with our friends at Wainwright Facades, thank you for allowing us to be involved and we are excited to be a part of more and more trees being planted!”
