On Friday 2nd December, Stone Federation hosted the 21st Natural Stone Awards Ceremony at London’s Leonardo Royal Tower Bridge Hotel.
Taking place every two years, the Natural Stone Awards celebrates the best examples of the use of natural stone in construction projects from across all sectors of the industry, from cladding and external masonry to interiors, and from landscapes through to restoration work.
Stone Federation Chief Executive, Jane Buxey commented that: “The 2022 Natural Stone Awards has been a fantastic celebration of the very best that this industry has to offer. This year, despite the challenges faced by the industry, the quality and quantity of entries was as high as it has ever been and is testimony to the agility, excellence and professionalism of the companies within the natural stone sector.”
The standard of the winning, highly commended and commended projects was very high throughout the eight categories. The category winners were all exceptional examples of the successful use of natural stone across a wide range of applications, from the crisp façades of the new Chelsea Barracks and the traditional stonemasonry construction on Lancing Chapel’s new West Porch to the expert restoration of Loch Lomond’s Cameron House and the breath-taking, hard-carved cantilevered staircase at Lenaboy, County Dublin.
