5th December 2014
Another year has flown by and this meant the Natural Stone Awards were upon us. On Friday 5th December, 2014 the 17th year of the Natural Stone Awards took place in London.
Historically, the Natural Stone Awards aim is to demonstrate the versatility of natural stone. Nature has provided a product that can come in a wide range of colours, textures, finishes, sizes and uses. These awards celebrate the use of vitally modern building material which is attractive yet traditional.
The Awards are used to give recognition and most importantly credit to the projects which have chosen to demonstrate the use of sustainable, versatile building material.
This is why we are pleased to announce Albion Stone have been awarded the following:
Bomber Command Memorial: This project was awarded winning position in the new build traditional category.
