FIRST CONTACT

FIRST CONTACT

We begin the process by meeting with the client to outline project requirements, needs, wants and aspirations. Whilst also highlighting any potential complexities or challenges.

RESEARCH & DESIGN SUPPORT

We Then conduct any necessary further research whether this be into more suitable products, specific colour matching or customisation of any kind. Our aim is always to select the best material for your requirements. We are on hand during the design phase to assist where needed to overcome any project challenges or complex configuration. We maintain a strong relationship with all our material producers, providing the bridge between you and any manufacturer.

ACQUISITION

Once all research and design is complete and all parties are satisfied we then procure all selected material ensuring our clients get the best price possible.

SUPPLY AND DELIVERY

Correct and properly planned supply and delivery to site is crucial to the success of any project. RGB Facades focus special attention on this making sure you receive materials as and when you need them, avoiding delays where possible and providing site support if required.

THE STONE JOURNEY

STAGE 1

A Geological survey is completed to establish suitable sites for extraction. The Yorkstone we provide was laid down like all sedimentary rock over millions of years, in this instance during the carboniferous period, over 300 million years ago.Some of the limestones we provide are even older, from a period before the first dinosaur walked the earth!RGB Landscapes were involved in the extraction of core samples and were very excited with what came out.

THE STONE JOURNEY

STAGE 2

Stone is then extracted, in the case of our Yorkstone is dug out with a 50-tonne excavator in blocks up to 20 tonnes. Other stones such as Bath stones are mined, sawn into blocks underground. Harder stones such as granite and gneiss are sawn from the face of open cast quarries.

THE STONE JOURNEY

STAGE 3

Blocks are then graded and sorted, with our Yorkstone we plug and feather to split blocks into manageable sizes, these are then transported to the processing plant for production.Some quarries, where large reserves are found, have the processing operation on site, where smaller reserves are being extracted this is not economically viable.

THE STONE JOURNEY

STAGE 4

Stone is then processed, starting with a primary saw, ours is a 3mtr diamond tipped circular, others use wire saws.Once slabbed, the stones then go to a secondary saw, we have numerous 1500mm saws and CNC machines to cut to the appropriate size.In the case of our Yorkstone it then goes through our calibration and finish machine.For other materials it may then go to masons for hand finishing, items such as cills coping pier cap etc.

THE STONE JOURNEY

STAGE 5

Once finished and inspected stones are packed on to wooden pallets, where necessary polystyrene packaging is used, this is kept to the optimal quantity not just for cost, but for environmental impact too. Then shrink wrapped and pallet tickets are attached.Materials are then sent by road in construction order to sites across the UK.RGB Landscapes are supplying projects in Edinburgh and Cornwall and most areas in between.
