What is cast stone?
Cast stone is a Portland cement based architectural precast concrete product manufactured incorporating high quality fine and course aggregates. It is regularly used in areas with sensitive planning constraints or where quarried natural stone is the prominent material.
The use of cast stone offers the designer the flexibility to choose their required colour, texture, finish and stone unit dimensions. Frequently manufactured products include finishes contain no pigmentation and are solely the natural colours of the aggregates within them.
The performance of cast stone is superior to quarried natural stone with regard to its increased strength and reduced moisture absorption, resulting in improved freeze/thaw durability. This offers the designer a new range of options such as bespoke sized units with stand-alone structural performance which is not achievable from quarried natural stone.

Our unrivalled Quality and Design processes…
Following a design consultation process, we start with precision manufactured durable moulds. Made from solid timber, steel, fibreglass or polyurethane, they guarantee accuracy, consistency and precision.
Cast stone products are only as good as the moulds and aggregates they’re produced from, which is why we use the best materials available. Everything we create exceeds British and European industry standards, with certain elements of testing achieving results that can be in excess of three times the value that these standards require.
With over 55 years' experience Vobster Architectural have a well-established reputation for producing only the highest quality materials for use in a wide range of construction projects including retail, residential and commercial schemes. Our technical team can provide expert advice for stonework and fixing design, and then later support the contractor through the installation phase.
