Grampians Sandstone’s natural beauty has been recognised by the Australian Stone Advisory Association (the Australian stone industry’s peak body) in its annual architectural awards.
The title ‘Best Commercial Project’ was awarded for the refurbishment of 234 Sussex St, Sydney. The stone supplier was iconic Australian stone extractor and processor, Melocco, who have a wonderful track record of supplying a huge range of stone for many of Australia’s largest and most successful landmark projects, over many years.
The refurb project featured both Grampians Sandstone and another unique and beautiful Australian stone, ‘Austral Black’ granite, from South Australia.
Like most industries these days, the stone industry in Australia can be very competitive – but it also boasts a wealth of knowledgeable and passionate people who freely share their experience and knowledge, for the good of all.
There’s a lot of world beating stone in Australia. And as the above award demonstrates, many successful projects draw materials and expertise from more than just one quarry.
