Burlington Stone will be exhibiting for the first time at this year’s American Society of Landscape Architects Expo in Boston, USA, on Sat 16th and Sun 17th November.
In collaboration with UK paving business, Marshalls, Burlington Stone will be exhibiting the merits of British natural stones and the superior quality and longevity of the stone.
At the Expo, Burlington Stone will be showcasing their range of Dimensional paving in Cumbrian Black, Westmorland Green and Baycliff limestone, all quarried from the heart of the English Lake District, and processed by craftsmen with skills passed down through the generations for the past 170 years.
This Expo provides an ideal opportunity for Landscape Architects within America to view the new range of dimensional paving available from Burlington, providing the ideal solution for any external finishing statement.
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.
Her Majesty The Queen has officially opened a new £15m National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art in Newmarket, where many of her own horses are trained and stabled.
Ten years of planning has gone into the new centre, which includes Burlington Stone’s Westmorland Green flamed paving in the internal and external walkways.
