Gro a mo – save a bro!! In support of men’s health the 22 Slugs are growing it for Movember! In the top ‘before’ photo we have (L-R) Mark, Thomo, Ryan and Nick. In the middle photo from L-R we have Thomo (again), Nick (again), Jedd (Captain Mo) and Alex. In the bottom photo, L-R, we have Finn, Nick (AGAIN!) and Simon. A special mention must go to Ryan, Alex and Simon for their efforts!

And clean shaven …

Raising funds for male health issues like prostate, testicular cancer, and mental health – the team would love your support as they sprout mos this Movember. Click here to check out their progress and to donate.

Congratulations to Josephine Love (Josephine Design), Tawera Group, John Love, Project Director and Paul Brown Architects –  who won Apartment of the Year at the recent Trends International Design Awards for 8 Hereford Residences. This was a significant and prestigious project we designed the building services for. Read the article here.

Michael Chand
didn’t just bring a wealth of electrical design experience with him when he joined us, he brought CURRY LUNCHES to 22 Degrees. We had a delicious Lamb Curry lunch recently prepared by Michael’s new wife, Arti.

A few month’s back, Ahmad Sheikh’s (Senior Electrical) wife Raeda catered an amazing Middle Eastern themed lunch for the team. So when we hire electrical engineers it would appear we are getting a package deal.

Alex, Ryan and friends did us proud in the recent Tough Mudder – an 18 kilometre mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. Proudly sporting his 22 Degrees T Shirt Ryan proceeded to drench it in mud and avoid a minefield of dangers while Alex (a marathon veteran) galloped elegantly through the course and then piggy backed him to the finish line. Before, during and after photos below.

Only six weeks to go until Christmas! 22 Degrees will be closing our office at 12pm on December 21st and will be closed until January 8th with a skeleton crew on deck. The office will fully reopen January 15th with most of the team back in the office.  We will be doing one last quiz for the year next month so keep a eye out for that!

22 Degrees was formed in 2000 by MD, Robert Mannes, who set up a niche consultancy specialising in mechanical design. Progressive expansion into hydraulics, electrical, fire protection and fire engineering design services created a ‘one stop shop’ to streamline communication and ensure design continuity.
Today we employ over 20 staff offering the full spectrum of building services from fully coordinated 3D design to construction monitoring.
Our main purpose on all projects is to maximise space, function and budget with smart multi-service solutions which complement building aesthetics. Our agile team thrive on collaboration and delivering designs which are efficient, sustainable and fit for purpose.
Over the past two decades 22 Degrees has successfully delivered over 3000 building projects across diverse sectors including education, commercial, health, residential, hospitality, industrial and aged care.
