CBC are proud to present "Stone Stories".
To celebrate our unique and exclusive heritage, we are honouring our conservation and restoration sector through a series of Interviews, Case Studies, Masterclasses and more, all under the title “Stone Stories”.
We are thrilled to introduce our interviews with Connor Prentice and Wendy Corrigan.
Conor has just completed his four year apprenticeship with CBC and is currently working on the restoration of Dean Castle, which is due for completion in 2020.
Wendy Corrigan, partner within Wylie Shanks Architects, sat down with CBC to discuss her role and career, whilst examining our current project to restore the historic Dean Castle, to which Wendy is the principal architect on.

About CBC Stone
Established in 1972 as a division of Central Building Contractors Ltd, CBC Stone is now recognised as one of Scotland's leading stone masonry contractors. We are fully registered members of the Stone Federation Great Britain.
Our organisation offers high quality services in stone construction, and specialises in the restoration, conservation and repair of traditional, historic and listed buildings. Over the last 15 years CBC stone have progressed from working predominantly as a specialist subcontractor, to operating as a main contractor on Conservation Projects with the key skills and knowledge to co-ordinate other specialist trades.
We currently employ a highly skilled team of 44 Stonemasons, Conservers, Labourers and Apprentices. We also operate our own, in-house stone manufacturing facility, with high specification stone cutting machines. This resource provides us with flexibility to accelerate production to suit programme requirements, while not compromising the quality of the workmanship and also gives us the capacity to order in bulk direct form the quarry and be more selective when choosing stone replacement units.
Our company is also committed to preserving traditional crafts and skills and operate a regime of apprenticeships in stonemasonry which are offered to young people within the areas in which we work.
