Buckingham Palace

As a result of having successfully delivered the Horse Guards Parade project earlier in 2014, we were asked to work on another prominent project in Australia Gate and Spur Road at the Queen Victoria Memorial, an area adjacent to Buckingham Palace.

The main contractor instructed our customer to ensure the same sandstone was used as had been in the Horse Guards Parade, as it had proved perfect for the area. Consequently, our customer asked us to provide the same materials and finish as in our last project with them. Within just one month of the order being placed, 40 sqm of the paving had been supplied and ordered by our team.

Moreover, we were asked to match some existing edging for the project, therefore we took several templates, and the same supplier of the paving, Woodkirk Stone, produced and supplied the stone for this, again within a month. It was clear that the Buff Sandstone, a durable material of excellent quality from Britannia Quarry, was just right for the area, and that it had been worth the time taken to research the materials for the initial project.

Later, we received another enquiry asking for the fine grained sandstone to be used inside Buckingham Palace itself, and it was also specially selected by English Heritage for use in another restoration project in North Yorkshire.

Duane Long, our Group Sales Manager, commented that the team are to be commended for their efficient and committed approach to the project and that they have ‘done Rudridge proud’.
