Amber Valley Stone were delighted to be selected by Owl Homes as stone supplier for the King Richard’s Wharf, Market Bosworth new development consisting of seventy-three standard house types ranging from two-bedroom to five-bedroom homes in Leicestershire.
Owl Homes specialise in the construction of sustainable high-quality residential dwellings throughout the Midlands. Incorporating design features such as brick arch lintels, pitched roofs, decorative chimneys, glazing and regency inspired door surrounds, Amber Valley Stone were appointed to manufacture and supply vapour cured semi dry cast stone heads, cills, string course, copings, pier caps and GRC door surrounds for the development.
Owl Homes, a long-standing customer of Amber Valley Stone began discussions for stone requirements in the initial stages of design and planning to ensure stone specifications, adaptations and manufacturing to the exact design detail were ready for supply and delivery, as scheduled, in line with agreed costs and to maximise any potential savings.
The cast stone elements needed to be robust and of high quality, with clean and consistent finished faces and corners. The project also required a special colour, which was achieved through a special blend of aggregates, pigments and the use of a medium etch finish.
Since development work commenced in 2022, Amber Valley Stone have supplied over 16 tonnes of vapour cured semi dry stone and over 4 tonnes of GRC door surrounds with another fourteen plots scheduled to be supplied. Whilst the development is ongoing, a showcase five-bedroom show home is now open for viewing, alongside Owl Home’s two storey sales office and selections suite.
The medieval town of Bosworth offers much in the way of character for its residents with many listed buildings, thatched roofing and its charming cobbled market square to name a few, resulting in a development of new homes in a historic location that offers the best of town and country living.
Amber Valley Stone vapour cured semi dry cast stone is ideal alongside their modern GRC retro fit door surrounds for adding luxury features to residential and commercial buildings with the look and texture of natural stone; finishes that work to bring a project to completion.
