At America’s oil and gas giant, Hunt Corporate Headquarters, Burlington’s Bursting Stone welcomes visitors to the landmark building.
With a waterjet finish to the exterior main entrance, visitors and employees are met with a stunning selection of green paving which has greater anti-slip resistance, whilst still maintaining a crisp and honed appearance. The natural markings of the stone are visible allowing the origins of the stone to be revealed.
The Bursting Stone waterjet finish is complemented around the edge with Bursting Stone in a flamed finish, which also offers a contrast in textures and again greater anti slip resistance.
Already a number of years old, this paving is another example of Burlington’s stones superior technical characteristics, as the stone will continue to stand the test of time and withstand the environment and pedestrian traffic it will be subjected to on a daily basis.
It was with mixed emotions that Burlington Stone thanked Terry Armistead, Production Manager, for his dedication to the business over the past 48 years and to wish him well in his retirement at a special party on Friday 5th May 2017. Having joined Burlington Stone at the age of 15, Terry has played a key role within the production facility at Kirkby-in-Furness. The vast knowledge and experience he has gained over the past 48 years, along with his “can-do” attitude means he will be greatly missed by colleagues and customers alike. Luckily, Terry has kindly agreed to continue to work for Burlington for a couple of days per week.
It is with delight that Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving has won the Landscaping Category at this year’s Natural Stone Awards 2016. Working together with Hardscape, based in Bolton, Burlington Stone supplied their Green natural stone for an integral part of the refurbishment of the Deansgate – Castlefield Metro Station project in Manchester.
