After seven years in the planning and construction, the new Durham County Justice Building has opened and Burlington’s Broughton Moor stone is clear to see.
Using Broughton Moor stone in a flamed finish to the exterior cladding, the aim of the project to create a civic institution that would provide a safe, secure and lasting structure was achieved. This project saw 21,000 square feet of the Broughton Moor slate being clad to the exterior of the courthouse. With a further 10,500 square feet supplied in the interior public areas, Broughton Moor’s distinctive characteristics has been used as an identifying feature of the entry vestibules to the courtrooms and as a feature wall at the front of the courtrooms.
This hugely important civic building needs to stand the test of time, and durability was a key criteria in the stone selection process. Thanks to Broughton Moor’s exceptional aesthetic and technical attributes, it makes an ideal solution for large projects throughout the world.
The US’ Building Stone Magazine has recently run an article about the project, which can be read at http://www.stoneworld.com/articles/87486-stone-creates-a-presence-for-durham-courthouse?v=preview
