About This Project
Our brief was to produce in White Marble Stevensons-Stone® the cornice to the eaves and the pediment of the Educational Centre in Suffolk. Also part of the specification were the arched infills above and around the first floor windows below the cornice line together with the string moulding at ground and first floor levels.
Stevensons-Stone® was selected when it was discovered that the cast stone alternatives were an estimated ten times heavier and not able therefore to be supported by the structure of the building.
In the event the Stevensons-Stone® was not only a practical solution but represented an overall cost saving against cast stone. The timely delivery of the Stevensons-Stone® also delivered programme benefits.
