Scope of Project:
Construction of Portland Stone Building

Albion Stone supplied Independent Basebed and Independent Whitbed for the external precast and hand-set cladding packages and an additional volume of Independent Basebed and New Independent Whitbed for the internals package of the project.

New Independent Whitbed & Independent Whitbed were chosen for the external façade, whilst New Independent Whitbed & Bowers Basebed were chosen for the internal reception areas, this is due to the technical properties of each of the stones and the aesthetics and look the architect wanted to achieve.

In total, Albion Stone supplied 73m3 of Portland stone for the external stone package of the project, and 13m3 of Portland stone for the internals of the project
