The Stonemasonry Company was founded in 2009 by partners Paul and Alex, who today manage our growing team from our workshop on the outskirts of Rutland.
We specialise in bespoke natural stonework projects, seeing them through from concept and design through to manufacture, installation and completion. We combine traditional stonemasonry skills and expert carving with modern design technology and innovative engineering to create the best pieces for our clients. We create the highest quality pre-tensioned, post-tensioned, and reinforced stone staircases, as well as traditional cantilever flights and unique load bearing stone.
As part of our commitment to the craft we are in constant search of new and challenging designs – this has helped us to become pioneers in the creation of some of the most innovative pre and post tensioned stone staircases in the world.
Whilst Paul takes care of logistics, Alex is dedicated to quality control, ensuring that nothing leaves our facility in less than perfect condition. We have an experienced team of in-house designers who work closely with project architects, and our engineering partners to meticulously plan our work. Our lead designer Jorge always is on hand to ensure that no detail is left to chance.
“We are so grateful for the seamless way you operate; it really does make life so much easier, not just for us but also our clients. The ideas, passion and knowledge you hold within your business is fantastic. Your craftsmanship is second to none and we are eternally grateful for our working relationship. Long may it continue!”
- Etienne Egloff, CEO Artisteel
Pierre, our knowledgeable and passionate project manager, supports our clients throughout the entire process from concept to delivery.
Meanwhile, our conscientious office manager Emma supports all of the teams within The Stonemasonry Company to ensure the smooth running of the business.
We are dedicated to supporting the future of stonemasonry, therefore our manufacturing and fitting teams often include apprentices as well as our more accomplished stonemasons, from both the UK and France.
“The team at The Stonemasonry Company certainly knows about the WOW factor! They designed and created a remarkable elliptic staircase for us at Camp End Manor – it is the very heart of the house and its beauty captivates every visitor.
The staircase represents outstanding design and engineering, but doesn’t tell the story of its inception and delivery, which was carried out with conscientious charm.”
- Daniel Mateos, Werner Capital LLP
We’ve collaborated with a range of different architects and designers worldwide, creating our beautiful stone staircases. You can see who we’ve worked with below.
In the past, in order to help us understand the spaces and volumes of a bespoke project, we have been asked by clients to create stone models. In recent months, however, we have found that a more cost-effective method for our clients is to produce bespoke 3D models using our in-house 3D printer. If a model is requested our design team oversee the production of these lightweight scale models, which are much easier to transport and handle than their stone counterparts. These models are also useful for testing our design theories and for showcasing more complex details. We feel that it is this commitment to new technologies that sets The Stonemasonry Company Limited apart from other companies.
