Architectural Services

Vermont Structural Slate Company is proud of its heritage producing architectural stone. We enjoy fabricating custom stone for projects and we will accommodate any design possible.

With over 150 years of experience, we can help designers evaluate, specify and detail architectural stones. We encourage architects to contact us in the early stages of design.

To honor the profession upon which we depend, we have sponsored design competitions including the 1987 Design A Gazebo Contest, the 1993 Urban Outhouse Design Competition, and the 2012 Middlebury College Solar Decathlon Competition. These competitions drew hundreds of entries from around the world and attracted a tremendous amount of publicity. Many prominent people in the design community served as judges for these competitions including Philip Johnson, Henry Myerberg, Karen Stein, Tucker Viemeister and Lella Vignelli.
