Our project manager held numerous site and design meetings, after which we produced over 50 manufacturing drawings for client approval. Subsequently, 30 deliveries were scheduled to supply the 305 tonnes of cast stone that we manufactured, every item is labelled with type and location references.
The client specified unusually thin 3 mm joints, so manufacturing tolerances were extremely tight and bespoke fixing inserts had to be designed.
Special air brick units featured an intricate pattern of through-holes. We undertook research to establish the best way to meet this requirement without compromising the high-quality surface finish.
