Abbotts Hill, Co Dublin
In May 2002, Craftstone was approached by Gem Construction who were developing a site at the Old Golf Links in Malahide. 40 up-market houses were to be built and the contractor wanted window surrounds and wall copings to be in wet-cast reconstituted Bathstone.
Each house was built to a different design and Craftstone had to work closely with the architect and the client to achieve the required end result. In fact, what started out as a supply of window surrounds and copings contract, grew considerably to include pier plinths, pier caps, chimney caps, walling, steps, columns and fi nally two large roundabouts within the site. A name panel was also supplied for the main entrance.
The bespoke architectural cast stone makes a bold statement and the end result is a prestigious development of highly sought after, individually designed houses.
