Portland stone is the premium stone that will transform your project into a masterpiece.

We supply stone for demanding applications on prestigious projects. Architects specify Portland stone for it’s aesthetic appeal, immense strength under compression and extreme durability. It is therefore, the perfect medium for external cladding, high traffic paving, carving sculpture and memorials.

Testimonials

“The specified stone for the Flanders memorial garden was chosen as the same stone used in the arch of the Menin gate in Leper (Ypres).

From day one, Portland stone Australia went above and beyond to provide the services requested for this project. Detailed technical specifications of the stone, cleaning and sealers for the stone were provided. Graham Tizzard personally escorted the project team in England to view other similar projects, the quarry itself and most importantly, the materials in manufacture for the comprehensive approval of the stone pieces and packaging for freight.

Portland stone Australia supplied 18 pieces, and 4 spare pieces, of Portland stone Jordans Basebed for the project. Portland stone Australia organised the complex delivery of the stone from Portland, England to Amsterdam where the stone was then airfreighted by the Australian Air Force to Australia. This was handled most professionally and the high level of assistance required to provide the meticulous transport documentation and clearances was most appreciated.

The opening of the Flanders Memorial Garden at the Australian War Memorial in April 2017 was one of the most significant events in the Centenary.

Key to the Flanders Memorial Garden, Portland stone Australia supplied the stone on time and to the highest standards required for this project of national significance for Australia.

I commend Portland stone Australia to any prospective client and would be very happy to elaborate further should anyone wish to contact me.”

Nadine O’Keeffe
General Manager, Built Pty Ltd

“I was very impressed with the quality of the Portland stone you supplied for our very prestigious project at the Australian War.Memorial in Canberra.

As you know, we ordered 4 additional pieces of the Portland stone to mitigate the risk of any stone being delivered with a defect and of course as promised every stone was perfect and the 4 additional pieces are now safely in storage at the Australian War Memorial.

The stone being so finely grained was a pleasure to work and letter cut into. The results are fortunately in the public arena for all to see and appreciate. We look very forward to working with you on the supply of more of this marvellous product in the near future.”

James Ginter
