We only buy directly from the quarry or via proven manageable sources to ensure provenance.
We are a specialist firm of stone professionals and associates, dedicated to the supply of ethically sourced high quality stone. The company founder, Simon Goude, is from a background in Landscape Architecture and industrial design and it is the innovative and creative approach of these disciplines that informs our business philosophy.
Working with a wide range of architectural practices, design agencies and contractors, as well as directly with individual clients, our promise is to safeguard complete traceability in our stone and exceed the highest standards of working practices and product quality. We can advise at every stage of your project – from initial concept through to completion – and provide technical support in defining specifications and working with British Standards.
We supply fully traceable stone for a wide range of projects – exterior and interior – for both public and private clients.
We specialise in SuDS paving systems, as well as traditional paving methods, and work closely with our partners at Steintec Paving Systems to design robust construction specifications that are fully compliant with BS 7533 and exceed the standards for all pedestrian and vehicular traffic.
We provide creative solutions as well as installation services for your exterior natural stone requirements. Our Italian artisan installers (see our sister site italianporphyry.co.uk) are in demand the world over for their unrivalled ability to create stunning landscape environments – from large scale public piazzas and streetscapes, to domestic driveways and pool surrounds.
With access to the latest cutting machines – including waterjet – we have the capability to cut and supply stone to 10mm thicknesses and less. We can also provide specialist advice and design/installation guidance on a range of fixing solutions including mechanical fixing.
INTERIOR FLOORING / TILING
Our portfolio of stone is suitable for a wide range of interior applications and can advise and help to design fixing systems that meet a full range of requirements and environmental situations. We work closely with market leading companies such as Schluter Systems and Kerakoll to bring the latest technical product and solutions to your project, including wet-room systems and environmentally friendly adhesives.
HOSPITALITY / RETAIL ENVIRONMENTS
Whether hotel concierge or business reception, natural stone supports and enhances the high quality environment that is so important for first impressions and to invite trust in your brand. We have supplied and fabricated for a number of hotel projects including the new ‘InterContinental London O2’ in Greenwich and the new ‘Crowne Plaza’ in Newcastle.
Working with our partners at Chiltern Marble, we provide a full template, fitting and fabrication service for all of our stone that is suitable for use in kitchen environments. We can advise on the appropriate durability of the type of stone surface your require.
We supply, design and fabricate bespoke items for all interior and exterior requirements.
We work to the four pillars of ‘TLC+C’ (Traceable / Landscape / Communities + Climate / ) which ensures our stone is:
- Fully TRACEABLE for assured provenance
- Quarried in a way that limits the long-term impact on the LANDSCAPE
- Governed by laws that ensure the wellbeing of stone workers and their COMMUNITIES
- Extracted & transported in ways that minimise the effect on CLIMATE
We visit every quarry we source from – we don’t rely on third parties to assess the traceability of our stone, but prefer to guarantee professional business practice and ethical standards are upheld by verifying for ourselves.
We are BREEAM accredited and source our stone to BES 6001 standards. See our listing in the BRE GreenBook live here >> GreenBookLive.com
