March Newsletter 2023
We hope everyone had a good Easter break. We have had a crazy March, which means the newsletter is late, but as they say, its better late than never. We have had a crazy few weeks with new staff members coming on board, projects nearing completion and keeping up with all jobs in the ACT & NSW. The weather has definitely taken a turn in March and you can feel that winter is on its way. Have a read below to find out what happened at Wainwright Facades last month and don’t forget that you can follow us on Instagram,Facebook and Linkedin as well.
NETWORK ARCHITECTURAL CASE STUDY
This month saw Network Architectural release a full case study publication which highlighted our 8,500m2 reclad in Canberra city centre. The article includes insights from various people involved in the project, including a fire risk assessor Benjamin Hughes-Brown (Vortex Fire), Project Manager Alex Shaughnessy (Project Coordination) and Wainwright Facades Director Joseph Wainwright. To read more about this project click here.
We are happy to announce we have won another re-clad situated on the Kingston Foreshore. Again we will work with Project Coordination to remove 3,500m2 of ply cladding and design, procure and install new James Hardie Exotec cladding system. This project will have logistical challenges due to the cladding being on the top two floors of the apartment building, so methodology and sequencing will be key to make sure the project runs smoothly for the tenants that are living there. We are due to kick off in late April.
Wainwright Facades Engineer Mahesh Pillai has been promoted to Operations Manager. Mahesh has been part of the company for 18 months and has been integral in the growth of the business.
Director Joseph Wainwright had this to say “Mahesh is an extremely motivated and driven guy. He epitomises what our business is about. His work ethic and dedication to ensure every task he does is to the highest standard is one of the many reasons he has been promoted.
I look forward to seeing Mahesh in this new role and to see where he can take us as a company. If there was one thing I would change about Mahesh it would be his ability to play cricket. He’s terrible.”
R.O.W TAKE THE TROPHY BACK!
Last month the indoor cricket rematch was played between Team India and Team Rest of the World (ROW). After India had won the first game in a controversial affair at Kambah indoor sports, this muchly anticipated rematch was just as fiery as the first encounter.
ROW captain, Evan White, won the toss and elected to bat. Some great partnerships and heavy hitting set a target of 112 for the Indians to chase. India came into bat and never really got going as the ferocious bowling attack kept them at bay.
Some dodgy scoring got the Indians closer than they should have been, but ring-in ROW player Kevin Barrett (Network Architectural) took two incredible catches late in the game to ensure the series is back to 1-1 and also ended up as player of the match. Thanks for playing Kev.
ROW Captain Evan White had this to say “It was good to finally get the chance at a rematch, I thought our pairs batted really well and we set a pretty competitive target.
Big Kev Barrett from Network was our X Factor, took a couple of lovely catches and proved to be a solid all-rounder.
Despite some creative rule interpretations from the Indian boys we got over the line and held ourselves well as dignified champions.🏆”
