NovemBER Newsletter 2020
We are almost at the end of the year and there’s no sign of slowing down just yet!
Please note our Christmas closure period is from 12pm Friday 18th December
and we will reopen on Monday 4th January.
Work has been progressing with Built at the new purpose-built facility for Winnunga Nimmityjah Aboriginal Health and Community Services in Narrabundah. Wainwright Facades is currently installing 400m2 of external timber cladding and 350m2 of Cemintel barestone cladding. We can’t wait to see this project completed in the next few months.
2021 Tree Planting Project
We are so proud of the number of trees we have donated over the past year, so we were excited to find out that the Carbon Positive Australia tree planting project will be a bit closer to us next year near Nimbin, NSW. Donated trees will be planted on 29 hectares of Widjabul Country which will aim to:
Provide increased habitat for fauna (including koalas)
Create additional corridor planting between two national parks
Restore previously cleared dry rainforest
The increased stocking in the dry rainforest will improve biodiversity and encourage further natural regeneration. The corridor will allow species movement from one area to another, supporting species development.
For more information on the project you can get a PDF fact sheet from Carbon Positive Australia here.
WE ARE HIRING
We are currently looking for skilled carpenters to join our expanding team. If you know anyone who might be interested in a career with Wainwright Facades please pass on our details or find out more information on our Careers page.
THANK You Fairview
We would like to say a big thank you to Fairview who have matched our donation of 100 trees for the month of November.
“Fairview specialises in the design, manufacture and distribution of a range of compliant and quality cladding products. With a focus on sustainability, Fairview has launched Ecoloop – Australia’s first circular ACP solution, diverting 100% non-compliant ACP from landfill. With an estimated 4.2 million sqm of cladding across Australia identified to require replacement, in environmental terms, this translates to 20,000 tonnes of ACP which is 340,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases. To explain the significance environmentally, every sqm of panel recycled has an equivalent benefit to the environment of planting a tree. That is, 1 sqm = 1 tree or more broadly, 4.2million sqm of cladding = 4.2 million trees.
Our donation to the tree planting program is just another way we’d like to give back to our environment.”
