Cast stone was used for all window surrounds, String Courses, Porticos, parapet balustrading and all other decorative dressings, including copings, window surrounds, bulls eye gable feature and many more.
Full working drawings were required for all the elements of the Cast Stone supply and due to the speed of build keeping up with the programme was critical.
The UKCSA specification for cast stone was an important element in the client’s choice of supplier as this house was built to the highest specification in all respects. Value for money and customer were also prime factors.
The front entrance portico stonework had to be adapted to incorporate certain structural elements.
The Portico design was challenging in that there was not a lot of space to construct this element and the client’s design had to be adapted to carry the imposed loads.
