Brimsmore Development

This stunning development was to include an appealing blend of styles and designs that included two and three storey terraces, semi-detached and detached properties. The Solution Procter Cast Stone’s joinery department to interpret the drawings and then manufacture the timber moulds. With so many different products each item was individually labelled so when it arrived on site our client knew exactly where it was to go. The Results Our client has built a truly stunning development with a mixture of property types.

Cast Stone Cills New Premier Inn Hotel

Procter has supplied cast stone cills and band course for the construction of a new hotel in central London. Over 50 tonnes of cast stone cills and band course products were supplied, with Procter working closely with the architect and attending site meetings to ensure that the bespoke units were manufactured as economically as possible, and that the quality was not compromised though careless site handling and installation. In addition to advising on the manufacturability of the design features, Procter Cast Stone worked closely with the architect to ensure that the cast stone units mounted correctly on the support bracketry.

Cast Stone for New Majestic Wine Retails Unit

A new build retail premises for Majestic Wine, which used cast stone walling, quoins and copings, and these to contrast with red brick to create a striking and contemporary piece of architecture. Some of the cast stone products were rebated to create a shadow-gap effect. Working together, Procter Cast Stone and the architect developed a scheme that achieved the desired distinctive visual appearance alongside brickwork and glass, but with cast stone units that were as economical to manufacture as possible. This enabled the architect to meet the client's brief while maintaining tight control over budgets.

Cheltenham Crescent

Five bedroomed semi-detached family homes with accommodation over ground, first and second floors, set within a gated community at the heart of Broughton Park. The Project Gated development in the North West. The Solution Working to the client’s brief we supplied a number of different products in two different colour. The Results A stunning niche development that is proving to be a highly desirable place to live.

Flood Alleviation Scheme

We manufactured robust bespoke wall copings and facing blocks with a textured appearance. Having had previous experience with working on many flood alleviation schemes throughout the UK, we worked closely with the specifiers and our client to ensure that the stone was functional as well as sympathetic to the environment. During the time spent on this project, we supplied over 350,000.00 tonnes of stone for this project that will serve to protect the residents for years to come.

Ikea Sheffield

We manufactured and delivered wall copings that complimented the natural stone walling. We had a three week window to manufacture and deliver the stone from receiving the order. All the stone had to be installed before the grand opening of the store. The order comprised of a mixture of straight and radius copings. We provided various colour samples to choose the suitable match. The order was fast tracked through the drawing department, the units were manufactured and delivered to site on time. The cast stone copings provide both a functional and aesthetically pleasing entrance for Ikea Sheffield.

Pembrokeshire Hotel

Conversion of a derelict windmill & rest home to create a 5* hotel. This was technically challenging project where we had to match both colour and design ofsome of the existing natural stone. Some of the units were extremely large and we had to ensure that these units had cast in lifting sockets. Close collaboration with main contractor and architect. Aftersales visit to advise on finishing of joints. Significant investment of time and resources to ensure project went smoothly. The project included some of the largest stones ever made at Procter Cast Stone.

Procter Manufacture and Installation of Cast Stone Replica Balustrade to Grade 1 Listed Hous

This was a relatively simply project for us replacing the original, but time-worn balustrade with cast stone replicas on this important grade 1 listed building. As can be seen in the photos, the cast stone replicas do look overly 'new'. However, and in the same way as they would if more expensive natural stone had been used, they will soon weather and take on a similar appearance to the adjacent originals.

Replacement of old stone architectural features with cast stone replicas

As part of the renovation of this attractive period property, we supplied cast stone copings and corbel blocks to replace the original natural stone features which had suffered deterioration over time. There were several challenges to this project, including the need for very accurate colour matching, plus the need to include 'cast-in' lifting inserts to the some of the products due to their considerable weight.

Replicates of post office stone on new house build

We originally got the inquiry for cast stone product for this new property through an exhibition stand we had at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon, and were then subsequently commissioned to go ahead with the project in August 2010. The client required window surrounds, quoins, ashlar walling blocks, copings and a dentil course around the top of the building. One special requirement was that the stone had to replicate that of an post office in Whitney, Oxfordshire, which the architectural design of the new building would also broadly follow.

Thirteen spacious homes in Leeds

Attractive new development making good use of Cast Stone. Vapour cured Cast Stone complimenting natural stone. The Solution Following on from our initial consultation and site visit, we produced a full suite of drawings and samples for the client to consider. The Results The development looks great and is proving to be very popular.

Walton Place, Thorp Arch

The Project A select gated development comprising of four homes. The Problem It was paramount that the cast stone complimented the natural stone elements of the project. The Solution We manufacture our stone in a wide range of colours so matching it to the natural stone was not too difficult for our team. The exceptional finish of our vapour cured cast stone complimented the natural stone perfectly. The Results All homes sold very quickly and the development is stunning.

World-class Equine Facility and House Renovation

For the new-build equine facility, which is world-class and one of the largest in Europe, Procter produced a wide range of architectural features including 25 columns and capitals, and components to make a horse through. Because these were in areas where they would come into contact with horses, they were manufactured from a mix that contained a higher proportion of grit sand than normal to achieve a higher strength.
