The Ministry building adjacent to the Parliament was historically significant and needed to undergo restoration as the substrate was failing and the exterior façade was being held in place with surface fasteners. The goal was to maintain the Greenland marble on the exterior but replacing it with newly mined material was not an option as the quarry was closed in the 1920s.
The existing Greenland marble was removed from the exterior and shipped to Texas where it was fabricated into StoneLite® panels. Lightweight stone plugs were manufactured to insert into the holes created by the surface fasteners. Some corner panels required a fixed curved and were fabricated to a radius of 11’-1” and 7’-9”.

24 Leonard St. was a four story parking garage and the developer converted it into a nine story condo building using StoneLite® Mocha Crème limestone panels for the exterior façade. The panels have a vertically grained honed finish and were fabricated with finished outside returns with the largest return at 11”. More than 10,000 sf of StoneLite® material was installed.

A multi-story exterior, column band, balcony fascias, and soffits project clad in 313 m2 of StoneLite® St. Hubert SLG and Texas Cordova Shellstone Limestone. The project scope was a retrofit and conversion of a 1970’s unsightly office building into 23 residential apartments with office accommodations on the ground floor.
The StoneLite® panels lightweight properties are a natural solution to architectural features where weight may be an issue.
The project won Best Housing (Large) in the AJ Retrofit Awards 2012 and a Blue Ribbon Award for Best Apartment.
When the Hyatt embarked on their renovation they selected StoneLite® Prairie Green granite in a high honed finish along with Impala Black granite in a flamed finish for portions of their exterior cladding Over 9,650 sq. ft. of StoneLite® panels were installed. The maximum panel size was 4’x8′ equaling about 144 lbs. per panel and allowed the installer to set 32 sq. ft. of stone in a matter of minutes using a boom basket.
