In addition to our comprehensive range of standard products, we very much specialise in the manufacture of individually designed cast stone features to meet specific project requirements.
Although some of the bespoke architectural features we manufacture are done so entirely based on architects’ drawings, we are equally capable of carrying out the design work ourselves. Often we are approached by an architect or a self-builder and asked to produce a design based on a rough visual, a variation of one of our standard products, or just from a verbal brief. In all cases we are able to respond, and using CAD to produce the proposal our in-house designers are able deliver whatever is needed.
This approach of us carrying out custom design for cast stone features is not only typically more cost effective for our customers, but also more practical because our in-depth knowledge of cast stone on a technical level means we are able to take all factors into account – not just aesthetics. These factors includes load-baring in the case of features such as porticos, plus practicalities of manufacture for all features.
Our design service is especially useful to people embarking on self-building projects, as they are able to show us the sort of features they are after – and perhaps using our image library and case studies for reference – then get us to do the rest. And for hard-pressed architects, the facility to just forward us a rough sketch of what they are after saves them time, hassle and money.
Our experience in designing architectural features to be produced in cast stone is extensive and goes back many years, in which time we have been involved in countless projects and for both traditional and more contemporary property developments.

From architects drawings or our own design team
Bespoke cast stone features can be manufactured from architects drawings or we are able to design them using own in-house CAD facility and incorporate bespoke cast stone features to fulfill both the aesthetic and structural requirements of the client’s project. If we design the features, they can be incorporated into final architects’ drawings. To see examples of our standard and bespoke drawings read more…
Creating special colours to match existing stone features
There are many advantages of using cast stone on renovation projects over real stone, and these include cost and durability. However, matching the colour of existing stone is especially important and this is something we’re able to do for all bespoke cast stone architectural features. Our ability to accurately match the colour of existing stonework is so good and the finish of the bespoke cast stone features so authentic, that after a limited period of natural weathering, the end result is virtually indistinguishable from the existing stone.
Delivery to site and on-going support
The need for agreed delivery dates to be adhered to is obviously very important, and this is something we always stick to. Once the cast stone features are on site, we continue to give support and advice to ensure the end result entirely meets the expectation of our customer.
