We have been involved with the Portland stone industry for nearly three quarters of a century, and quarrying the stone from the Basbed, Whitbed, and Roach seams for over thirty years.
In recent years, we have switched our extraction operations from quarrying to mining. This process allows us to significantly reduce our environmental impact - we’ve made Portland Stone an economical yet sustainable choice that compares favourably with many alternative construction materials.
Our Limestone production facilities are now the most technically advanced in the UK, with our in-house Masonry works cutting this high quality British Limestone into a full range of Portland Stone products, including: Ashlar Cladding, Walling, Flooring, Paving, Stone Masonry & Bespoke Carving commissions.
Our commitment to producing a product of the highest quality is one that conforms to the rigorous ISO 9001 standard. We have gained certification of Environmental Code ISO 14001 and are currently working towards the Sustainable and Responsible Sourcing Code BES 6001.
Architects and designers have chosen Portland Stone for over a thousand years. Many of the greatest buildings in London are constructed from Portland Stone, including Banqueting House and, most famously, St Paul’s Cathedral.
Today, we supply stone for demanding applications on high-specification projects, with Architects choosing Portland Stone for more than just aesthetic reasons: it’s immense strength under compression makes it ideal for load-bearing masonry, it’s extreme durability allows it to be used for high-traffic paving, and it’s perfect medium for carving sculpture and memorials.
Recent contracts include award winning projects such as Green Park Underground Station, the Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge and the RAF Bomber Command Memorial situated in Green Park.
