Any industry is stronger when it stands together and the 2020 Natural Stone Awards will be a celebration of collaboration.

The Awards celebrate and recognise the excellence of design in natural stone projects from all areas of construction. Each Awards see work from throughout the British Isles entered across the various categories.

The Natural Stone Awards offer an unparalleled opportunity for showcasing your company’s contributions to the built environment.

The competition is open to all stone projects, not just those that involved a member of Stone Federation Great Britain, and the Federation encourages the whole industry, whether you are a stone supplier, quarry operator, contractor or consultant, to join in promoting the benefits of using natural stone in projects.

This is an opportunity to gain widespread recognition for your company and to be a part of an event that shows why natural stone truly is the king and queen of building materials, providing architects, designers and clients with a sustainable, durable and stunningly attractive complement to designs of the highest calibre.

The best statements really are written in stone.
