Modern building techniques, and contemporary architecture have changed the development of the building industry. The use of natural, bespoke materials in construction has adapted, from it’s age old roots to the modern systems in use today.
Just as the construction industry has been required to adopt modern methods, so too has the design and production of natural materials in the modern world. The modern UK building and construction industry is more specialised than previous generations, with fewer natural quarries. Quarrying processes are more modern, and the materials are processed by giant saws, where the blocks are transformed into slabs. Secondary saws then cut it into it’s final desired shape. This process is used to create the sawn six sided, diamond sawn Yorkstone paving, that is so popular with building contractors, and civil engineers alike.
