Cadeby Stone have completed the production of over 350m3 of finished stonework for The Bryanston Hotel in Marble Arch. Using Broadcroft Whitbed Portland stone, this project was particularly challenging due to the geometrically designed stonework and was mostly completed on the Donatoni 5-axis CNC machine. The stonework was then installed to form over 200 individual stone faced precast units. The 18 month production programme was completed on time and within budget.
PLP Architecture’s new London headquarters for Qatar Airways at 10-11 Conduit Street in Westminster shows the level of sophistication that Cadeby Stone can deliver.
The stone was selected; graded; sawn; profiled; worked and supplied by Cadeby Stone. It was installed by our sister company Grants working with Mace, the main contractor.
The new five-storey building integrates offices and a retail showroom. Hand-patinated bronze recesses separate and contrast with the feather-shaped elements of the stone, worked on Cadeby’s Donatoni five axes CNC and finished by the masons at the Cadeby Stone works.

An outstanding large plinth in Cadeby Bed 4, has been fabricated at Cadeby Stone’s Doncaster works for Studley Royal UNESCO World Heritage Site and the National Trust.
The plinth measuring 2.2 x 1.1 x 1.15m high was installed by Rupert Harris Conservation from London. It is on the site of the original plinth where The Dying Gladiator, a statue that has been missing from the water garden since the 1800s is now reinstalled.

The new European headquarters for Bloomberg in London has been awarded best New Building in RIBA’s 2018 Stirling prize. A fantastic achievement for a stunning building. Cadeby Stone is immensely proud to have been part of this iconic building. The works at Cadeby along with Stancliffe’s now closed production facility manufactured the Derbyshire sandstone for the façade. Grants of Shoreditch installed the stone which is the largest sandstone building ever built in the Capital.
The Bloomberg Building designed by Fosters+Partner Architects consists of two buildings, connected by a retail site under glazed walkways. These walkways reinstate an historic route that once connected Cannon Street with Watling Street. The building is ten-floors with a two-storey colonnaded base, six office floors and two levels set back at the top. The solid facade combines buff Stanton Moor Sandstone and bronze blades.
