May Newsletter 2020
It has been a busy month finishing up the temporary hospital and a number of other projects that are coming to an end. As always, we are excited to start some new projects around Canberra.
Joint health command garrison facilities upgrade project
We are excited to start working on a new health centre at Duntroon in Canberra with Kane Constructions. Wainwright Facades will be installing 360sqm of VitraDual, 80sqm of VM Zinc and feature aluminium screens and aluminium sunshades to the building.
The new health centre will provide primary health and associated health care to Australian Defence force personnel and is part of the Joint Health Command Garrison Health Facilities Upgrade Project which will see upgrades to Defence health centres across 13 Defence sites nationally.
COVID-19 ED Complete
The COVID-19 temporary Emergency Department in Canberra is now complete and ready for use should it be needed. It was great to work for Manteena on such a well planned and executed project. Wainwright Facades installed 700m2 of custom orb cladding. Congratulations to everyone involved on completing the facility in just 37 days!

THANK You Beaumont Concreting
We would like to say a big thank you to Beaumont Concreting who have matched our donation of 100 trees for the month of May.
"Beaumont Concreting has been servicing the Canberra Region for the past 6 years. We focus on small to medium developments in the residential sector, providing a service that is a fundamentally different approach to other companies within the Canberra market. Beaumont Concreting uses multiple online platforms to ensure the process is streamlined beginning with tendering right through to start and finish date. Communication is the difference at Beaumont, and we believe that it is fundamental to a successful project. We at Beaumont understand the growing need to help boost a better climate for all people existing and for the future. Donating was an easy decision and we look forward to Wainwright Facades implementing this on our behalf."
