Completion Date:

Portland Stone:
Independent Basebed

Albion Stone supplied approximately 20 cubic metres of raw blocks of Independent Basebed which were worked into pieces such as quoins, heads, jambs, columns and Ashlar panels at Cathedral Works Organisation’s Chichester works. 

The existing building’s façade was dismantled at 2nd and 3rd floor levels remodelled and rebuilt in new Portland Stone including the extension of two pairs of columns to an extremely high standard. 

The existing stonework was professionally cleaned and repairs to the façade carried out alongside the new construction of a main entrance. 

As the new stone begins to age the restored pieces will age to the same colour as the original stone.
