november Newsletter 2022
December already! Where did 2022 go? What a whirlwind of a year. We have had our busiest year yet and things don’t look like they will slow down as we come into the last four weeks of the year. The weather looks like it is finally turning after a dreadful few months for those of us working outside. Below is what’s been happening lately at Wainwright Facades.
We have been awarded the project to complete the external cladding package for the new Cabramurra Township redevelopment by Manteena. We are cladding the new building which will have 100 apartments for Snowy Hydro staff and contractors.
In January 2020 bushfires destroyed 35 houses, three apartment blocks and Edinburgh Cottage (where the late Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh stayed during their tour of the region in 1963). The towns former school building and community tennis courts were also lost as the bushfire tore through the small town.
Cabramurra is one of the highest towns in Australia at an elevation of almost 1500 metres and can be subject to very harsh weather. This is a very complex project due to the location and weather but we are up for the challenge and can’t wait to get started. We will look to commence works in Feb 2023.
Last month saw the ICC T20 world cup take place, which took over the lives of some of the employees. With a strong Indian contingent amongst the employees, they headed to the dock to watch India Vs England and unfortunately for them, the match was a white wash where England showed no mercy and won by 10 wickets. In a bid to try and salvage some pride for their nation, Workshop manager and Engineer, Mahesh put forward the idea that the Indian guys take on the rest of the guys in an indoor cricket game. As you can imagine, this topic has taken over the group chat and the game is scheduled for next Thursday 8th December 2022.
Team India captain Mahesh Ballachandran Pillai is extremely confident about the contest and thinks the game will be a walkover. Rest of the World captain Evan White has other ideas though. Evan has played indoor cricket for many years and is looking to make an impact with bat and ball when the teams collide.
We will be sure to post the results up after the game.
