Stonewest is honoured to have contributed to the multi-award winning preservation of St Pauls Cathedral. Works have included the cleaning and restoring of the Main West Front elevation and the subsequent redesign and laying of the OBE Chapel floor. Stonewest also completed the landscaping of the South Churchyard, which depicts the original pre-Christopher Wren cloisters.
Stonewest made a significant contribution to the remarkable transformation to St Pancras International involving the refurbishment of St Pancras Station buildings providing a high speed rail link to the Channel Tunnel portal. Stonewest’s contract included cleaning, restoring, conserving & repairing the Grade 1 Listed masonry walls of the “train shed” & the formation of 17 new brickwork arches.
This landmark store underwent high level stabilisation of structural masonry, carried out from a bespoke designed scaffold and erected from 1st floor level with Stonewest as Principal Contractors. Ensuring minimal impact to the retail trade of the countrys second largest department store was a high priority coupled with providing a suitable working environment for the Stonewest team of skilled employees.
Acclaimed as the finest music hall in the country when it first opened in 1834, Birmingham Town Hall underwent an extensive £34million programme of restoration & conservation. Stonewest meticulously scheduled £4million worth of stone repairs which required up to 30 masons and carvers, making this one of the largest stone masonry repair jobs in Europe at the time.
Classified as "a building at risk" and in an area with “Schedule Ancient Monument Status”, Cowdray Tudor Mansion had been made inaccessible due to falling masonry. Stonewest, working with their sister company St. Blaise, won the 2 year contract carrying out meticulous award winning conservation repairs allowing this 16th century building to re-open to the public, now both a visitor attraction and education facility.
Originally the Lloyds Bank headquarters at the heart of the square mile, in the City of London. A complex multidiscipline contract involving extensive refurnishment and redevelopment of the internal space and external facades in order to upgrade the original listed building following a change of use.

It is to our benefit that shortly before New Year we celebrated 25years of service with our Gary Earl (Site Manager) and Steve Francis (Senior Estimator). Neither Gary nor Steve is known as a self publicist and they barely agreed to photographs and handshakes. Our Managing Director Nick Wilson attempted a resume of their achievements in 20 minutes; needless to say he barely scratched the surface.
Gary has continually stepped up to all challenges that have been presented to him over the years and is known for both a wry sense of humour but above all a willingness to adapt, take on problems and to bring solutions.
