Design & Drafting

The first step is the shop drawing process. Our drafting team works closely with the contractor and/or architect to ensure all details, large and small, are addressed. This process is vital to the progress of your project and will eliminate potential job site or installation issues. Once the shop drawings have been completed, we will transmit these to you electronically (or hard copy if you are unable to print). These should then be forwarded to the architect or responsible party for approval or any necessary dimension changes.

Design & Drafting

Should you email the approved shop drawings back, they should go to the detailer who sent them. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO FOLLOW UP VIA TELEPHONE CALL TO ENSURE THEY HAVE BEEN RECEIVED. If there is no follow-up phone call, we will not be held responsible should the drawings be overlooked sitting in an email inbox. Due to the popularity of our architectural limestone products, we receive many emails each day and this follow up phone call is very important and will ensure there are no delays releasing the material for fabrication.

Sequencing & Scheduling

On a larger project, sequencing is a very important factor in scheduling the fabrication of your project. This information is vital to making sure you get what you need in the order in which you need it. Typically, the sequencing should be received with the final approved shop drawings.

Equally as important, smaller projects over one semi load should also have a sequence submitted to ensure there is no delay in the limestone fabrication and delivery of your project.

Fabrication

Upon receipt of the final stamped up approved drawings, we then generate shop tickets that will be released into the mill for fabrication. Delivery for your initial load will be within the time frame indicated on our proposal. Once delivery begins, we can confirm that it will progress throughout the duration of the setting and fixing period.

Shipping Information

We ship to job sites all over the world. Larger orders located in North America are shipped via flatbed semi and smaller orders shipped via LTL common carrier or on one of our straight trucks. Overseas orders are containerized and shipped via truck, rail and ship to the ultimate destination. Orders being shipped overseas need to allow at least an additional four weeks in their schedule for shipping time and customs clearance.

We ship by the most economical method that ensures the proper handling and arrival of your natural stone order. All of our orders are palletized, strapped and shrink wrapped to properly secure and protect your limestone from damage during shipment. Once this process is completed, we will contact you to arrange a delivery date.

Information we will need to make delivery:

  • Job site contact and phone number
  • Directions to the job site and any instructions our driver may need
  • Location of delivery point at the job site

Each shipment will include:

  • Two packing lists on each pallet which indicate the specific pieces on said pallet.

Delivery

Please note that you will be responsible for unloading at the job site. Generally, a forklift is the best equipment to use for this. Advise us of any delays that may come up on your project so we can make adjustments in the shipping schedule if needed.
