Nelson, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 07, 2012 -- Introducing Stone EdgeStone Edge was formed in 2007 after the managing directors had served 12 years working on Royal households and large-scale civic buildings in London for the capitals premier stone masonry specialist.
After relocating back to the North West it became apparent that there was a shortage of high-end stonemason contractors within the local area with the knowledge and skills of building conservation gained from two decades of conserving large civic buildings in the capital.
It was clear from the outset that the main focus of Stone Edge was to build a company name that was reputable and honest.
Therefore, the focus is on type and quality of stoneworks rather than quantity.
Stone Edge's aim is to provide the very highest quality of building conservation stonemasonry to clients.
All natural stone masonry and associated stoneworks are carried out in a manner that ensures a standard befitting of historic structures and to those who gave their time to create the buildings that we enjoy.
Expansion into London
Since the company's inception, Stone Edge has completed some high profile building restoration projects and has grown significantly- with the introduction of the London office, thanks to its innovative and respectful approach to historic building restoration.
The firm, based in Nelson, Lancashire, said the expansion was prompted by an increasing workload of national projects.
Richard Denneny, Managing Director at Stone Edge, said: "The opening of the London office is a reflection of our steady growth of the business.
"Having an additional office in London allows us to meet our clients' needs much more effectively, both in the capital and nationally.
"It makes sense to have an office in London to manage our southern projects more efficiently."
The new office, situated on Cannon Wharf in central London, will be the hub of Stone Edge's southern operations.
It will establish a presence in the capital as the company takes on an increasing number of building restorations in the south of England.
Stone Edge's expert stonemasons, carvers and letter cutters are highly experienced craftsmen and all work is finished to a very high standard.
They specialise in the repair of historic buildings, structures and monuments, from listed buildings to World Heritage Sites.
This building restoration expertise has been called upon for a wide variety of heritage projects, including abbeys, industrial monuments, churches, bridges, prisons, civic halls and sculptures.
Projects Stone Edge has been involved in include galleries, Banks, Courthouses, historic mansions, clock towers, prisons and churches.
In the constantly evolving environment, Stone Edge diligently monitors both scientific and practical industry developments and, by liaising closely with clients, delivers results of the very highest standards.
As a fast growing business, Stone Edge will be looking to expand further across the country in the near future.
