PROJECT SUMMARY

As part of the £200m New Waverly development of Edinburgh’s historic old town, a new Premier Inn was commissioned. Overlooking the characterful Royal Mile, the exterior facade of the new building had to seamlessly integrate old with new.

THE BUILT SOLUTION

The design of the building takes a traditional sandstone material and combines with glass and aluminum to form a stunning, contemporary finish. The striking colouration of Stanton Moor sandstone features a buff base with brown and gold variation, matching closely with the materials used in the historic city.

STONE DESCRIPTION Carboniferous sandstone from Stanton Moor quarry. A buff sandstone with technical properties ideal for rainscreen cladding, ashlar and masonry products.

Stanton Moor Quarry Derbyshire, England

A beautiful Derbyshire Carboniferous sandstone, which has been used widely across the UK for all scale of projects - from major prestigious city centre schemes to residential developments and private homes. Stanton Moor buff sandstone is also specified in Scotland on a regular basis providing a suitable match to Scottish blonde sandstones which are no longer available.
