It has been a while since we last blogged and we thought we best correct that with a blog all about Norse Stone's recent trip to Belfast!
Whilst there, we visited some of the sites, completed and still ongoing, where our stone has been used. First stop was Ligoniel Road where the streets were lined with mixed coloured Caithness flagstone including 200, 300 and 400mm by random length paving contrasted by 100 x 100mm cobbles.
Next stop on our tour of Belfast was the amazing Ulster University. Although this project is still ongoing, our team were lucky enough to be shown some of the areas which have been completed so far as well as seeing a glimpse of others which are still currently being constructed. Caithness flagstone paving laid around the building is complemented by flagstone steps with granite edges and features recessed lighting. The striking pattern of the angular Caithness flagstone paving continues into the building in the form of flooring in common areas. With more Caithness flagstone paving, flooring, steps and bespoke benches still to be completed, we cannot wait to see (and be able to show you) the finished project.
Last, but certainly not least, our final project visit was the spectacular Custom House Square. Surrounded by historic buildings, this space is used to hold outdoor events like music concerts with recent artists including Tom Jones and James Arthur! All those dancing feet will need some hardwearing paving with Norse Stone suppling 300 x 175mm riven mixed coloured Caithness flagstone paving which has been laid right around the square ready to handle any event or even just day to day foot traffic.
The Norse Stone team are back at the quarry now after their fantastic trip to Belfast and are busy producing the Caithness flagstone products you all love. If you would like to incorporate Caithness flagstone into your next project, get in touch with our friendly sales team.
