Scope of Project:
Construction of a prestigious villa in Spain
Roach & Partners are a development company specialising in bespoke prestigious houses in Spain.
Their design philosophy requires the use of the highest quality materials which led them to consider the use of Portland stone for this project.
They inspected the range of Portland Stone during a visit to the Quarries and a number of Albion Stone’s completed projects including the British Library, Royal Horseguards Hotel and Portcullis House in London.
Albion Stone were able to supply the desired quality of finished product within the contract programme. The New Independent Whitbed specified for the main flooring provided the aesthetic qualities and character required for large areas of floor in a luxury development of this kind.
New Independent Whitbed was selected for 1860m² of flooring, 454 linear metres of stair treads and 1,300 linear metres of skirtings. Two fireplaces were also produced using New Independent Whitbed as well as the bath surrounds and bath steps. Independent Grove Whitbed was selected for internal wall tiling and Bowers Roach for feature panels on the external facades.
Albion Stone, a fourth generation family business pride ourselves on having a helpful and skilled workforce as well as modern and traditional manufacturing process to enable us to produce the highest quality Portland Stone with minimal environmental impact.
