The buff Stoke Hall Ashlar walling was selected to give the building its heritage appearance. Bespoke masonry features for the heads, cills, jambs and mullions crafted from Stoke Hall stone finish the project perfectly. In consultation with the Architect and Client, the overall stone package was value engineered reducing overall costs without compromising the grandeur of the building.
