Cast Stone in Hospital Conversion
City & Country Group has earned an enviable reputation as one of the UK's leading property developers, combining traditional values with innovation and the pursuit of excellence. In May 2009, the company's landmark development in Brentwood, The Galleries, received two top industry awards. This conversion of the Grade II listed derelict Victorian Warley Hospital won both the Best Conversion and Best Large Development awards at the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2009. An important aspect of the development was the use of cast stone to replace damaged natural stone and to replicate natural stone for new features on the existing buildings as well as for new buildings and extensions on the site. All of the cast stone items were supplied by Procter Cast Stone, whose staff also provided advice, support and consultancy services to ensure that the project progressed smoothly, on budget and to the agreed schedules.
