We manufacture a range of natural stone products to the exact specification of our customers in the stone of their choice, be that granite, limestone, marble or an engineered stone such as Silestone or Trevisan. We will work with you to advise you on choosing the best stone for your project and gives satisfaction to your clients for years to come.
stoneCIRCLE works with both individuals and businesses to supply natural stone for private houses and commercial contract work. We regularly work with architects and interior designers and advise them on the practicalities of realising their project in natural stone. We also carry out sub-contracting work for stone contractors.
The company has been manufacturing stone products since 1968 at its state of the art CNC equipped factory outside Basingstoke just a short train ride from central London.
We have supplied architectural stonemasonry for many different projects - water features and outdoor stone fountains, cladding for buildings, monuments, sculptures and artworks and flooring for largescale commercial projects and are used to working with architects from the beginning of a project to its completion. We can work in any stone that you require and are ready to advise as to the suitability of certain stones for the project envisaged. We also work as sub-contractors to stone contractors on a regular basis, both in free issue and supplied stone.
We use a mixture of the latest technology and hand finishing where appropriate. Our factory has recently been extended and is now the largest in the south of England. Our CNC equipped machines are capable of 3D stone carving. We also have a waterjet cutter for intricate inlaid work, in bronze and other materials as well as stone.
stoneCIRCLE produces and installs natural and engineered stone reception desks, floors, bathrooms, swimming pools, spas, steam rooms, jacuzzis, fireplaces and furniture in hotels all over the UK.

The company has also been involved in manufacturing stone sculptures and monuments for many prestigious national projects, such as the Normandy Landings Memorial at the National Arboretum. The image shows the limestone frieze designed by Susanna Heron for the Sainsbury's Laboratory in Cambridge which stoneCIRCLE manufactured.
Other projects include a granite water feature for a commercial development in Manchester where a tolerance of only 1mm over 27 metres could be allowed in the levels requiring precision engineering of the stone and Rhona Smith's An Instant, An Age in New Burlington Mews where we cut bronze shapes on our waterjet cutter and then inlaid them into Portland Stone blocks that had been routed.
The company regularly works with interior designers and architects on domestic projects, manufacturing and installing marble and limestone bathroom items, including vanity tops, shower trays, basins and tiles, granite and quartz kitchen worktops, stone fireplaces etc.
We have manufactured and fitted a huge number of granite worktops over the more than 45 years since we started business.
We make the worktops to measure for the kitchen in which they will be installed. We recommend using either granite or a quartz composite or marble composite for worktops, as all are hard wearing and durable. We are approved fabricators for all the major brands of engineered or composite stone, such as Silestone, Q-Stone and Dekton and will work with you to ensure that your clients end up with granite worktops which will satisfy them for years to come.
