Surround Segmental ArchAbbey-Crete Ltd has recently completed the manufacture of a number of reconstituted stone granite door surrounds for a site in Northern Ireland. We had little detail but were able to work with site to design surrounds to suit. The contract also included reconstituted stone chimney surrounds, pier caps and straight and curved copings.
All the reconstituted stone finishes were granite, but we also manufacture in Buff, Yorkstone, and Portland as well as some greys and browns.
Other reconstituted stone items available include sills, lintels, quoins, door surrounds, window surrounds, pier caps, coping and specials made to order. We can deliver anywhere in the UK or Ireland.

We have also supplied a number of specially designed reconstituted stone coping to a University site in Scotland. We supplied a number of finishes to the contractor and architect, and they decided upon our ‘Portland’ finish which complemented the natural stone on site. We cast 8 different types of stone to enable the contractor to fit each stone without any need for cutting.
