In any industry, anticipating changing trends and then responding to them is a challenging brief. Our team of designers are leaders in meeting this brief as is shown by our achievements and extensive knowledge of the use and design of natural stone.

SCI are one of the few leading stone cladding companies that are fortunate to retain an “in house” design team operating networked CAD work stations. The team has many years design experience, working in close association with many of this countries leading Architects and Structural Engineers. With this wealth of experience behind us, we are well placed to offer the following:

  • An advisory service to Architects and other professional organizations regarding the complex subject of interior and exterior stone facing and paving design
  • Design development of Architects conceptual designs to provide an approved design solution that meets aesthetical, technical and performance related expectations in line with the requirements of all applicable Building Regulations and Codes of Practice
  • Preparation of working drawings, cutting schedules templates and specifications that turn the developed design into working documents for manufacture and installation purposes
  • Preparation of as built drawings and operation and maintenance manuals

Advancement of IT techniques in electronic transfer of data have required us to stay at the forefront of the industry. We have invested in the purchase of state of the art computer equipment and software and have the ability to receive, view and submit drawings from a variety of sources such as Contractors document control software, webpages and ISDN or email transfer.
