Using Burlington Stone's Westmorland Green paving proposition within the pool area of the garden, a focal point for the design's vision was created.
The design represented a city with a new clarity of purpose and sources of energy. It drew on the city’s natural resources and plugs directly into the new dynamics.
The garden’s clear lines, circuits, solar panels and high-tech materials reflect the technological revolution. The glass pavilion reflects water, earth and air; the city’s emerging sustainable energy ambitions. The planting is inspired by nature’s re-colonisation of Stoke-on-Trent, reconnecting the city to nature and a cleaner and greener future.
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.
