A Commitment to Architects

... is our heritage

We are proud of our work with architects and we enjoy the challenge of meeting the fabrication requirements of their designs. 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.

Architectural Services

Expertise & Experience

Celebrated architects cite Vermont Structural Slate Co. as a key partner in their projects.  They appreciate the accurate, thorough and honest information they receive from our company as well as the quality and beauty of the final product.  From evaluating a particular stone’s capabilities and limitations to laying out and blending finished pieces prior to installation, our experience and desire to get it right is clear to architects.  We have tremendous respect for the work architects do and we are grateful to participate in their projects.

We are accustomed to working from architectural drawings and are pleased to produce detailed shop drawings, sketch details, templates and shop tickets. We can also assist with samples, test data, mock-ups, site inspections, stone matching services, specifications, technical information, design suggestions and installer recommendations.
