Architectural Cast Stone

Manufactured in Nottinghamshire

Stone by Design is a precast manufacturer of distinction, specialising in Architectural Cast Stone.  We offer a complete service from start to finish, providing supreme quality cast stone products across two different disciplines, Wet Cast and light weight GRC stone products.

We only use quality natural materials in our manufacturing plant, based in Sutton-in-Ashfiled Nottinghamshire, to produce our Wet Cast and GRC Stone, to ensure a supreme quality finished product which meets the very highest of standards BS 1217 and BS 8110 which has been superseded by EN 1992 ‘Cast stone - Specification’ Standard and UKCSA Specification and BS 1170 part 5.

Stone by Design offer a standard range of supreme quality Architectural Cast Stones, but we have the facilities in-house using our specialist joiners, to create any mould required irrespective of the design complexity.

We at Stone by Design believe strongly in providing excellent customer service, highly competitive pricing and fast lead times to meet even the most demanding of budgets and timescales.  We can guarantee your job will be finalised within budget and to the deadline.


Stone by Design's products are available in a set of four standard colours; Portland, Lichen, Bath and Light Bath.  However, we have the experience and knowledge to match existing colours on site or with a sample, and can produce a wide range of colours to suit and add distinction to any building project and client requirements.

Please feel free to come down to our showroom and staging area in Sutton-in-Ashfield Nottinghamshire, to view visual appearances and to see our available Architectural Cast Stone in stock.  Here you can view the colours on range and witness first hand the quality craftsmanship, which goes into our supreme quality products.

Wet Cast Solution


Wet Cast Stone is useful for complex reinforcements, load-bearing situations and where there is a high degree of environmental exposure without the requirement for standard lintels.


Our Wet Cast Stone is professionally hand finished with that extra love and care which provides a surface texture which weathers profoundly slower than any dry cast or other alternative cast stone.


It offers a hard, durable finish which will match any concurrent style.

GRC Solution

Whereas our Feather-Stone GRC (Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete) has a unique combination of high strength and low weight – up to 80% lighter than traditional precast cladding – together with the fact that it’s easy to both handle and install, makes GRC popular with many architects and property developers. 


This glass fibre reinforced concrete requires minimal maintenance to keep its desired appearance. So if you’re needing a versatile, environmentally-sound material for your office or large commercial project, GRC could be the choice for you. 


GRC is also ideal for all large housing developers, as it is also available in a standard range of sizes and colours.

The Bottom Line...

Rather than using expensive natural stone components for your building project, Architectural Wet Cast or GRC Stone is a welcomed alternative, which is not only a third of the price but also more readily available and can be cast in many different colours to match natural sandstone, keeping with the contemporary design, without compromising the durability and structural integrity of natural stone.


With the ability to supply standard or bespoke units, the craftsmanship combined with a unique blend of locally sourced sands and aggregates, Cast Stone Manufacture can be moulded to almost any shape giving you the opportunity to create or reproduce Stonework that is both cost effective, attractive, durable and with the weathering characteristics and structural integrity of natural stone.



Cost Effective Solution – a lower cost alternative than using natural stone.


Authentic – capture the authentic look and feel of natural stone.


Contemporary Design - choose a new design or a contemporary feel for your build or property.
