Façade Stonework

Columns & pilasters

Take inspiration from the architecture of ancient Rome and Greece.

Cast Stone Columns

Our elegant cast stone columns are the perfect structural element for any entrance.  Inspired by the architecture of Ancient Rome and Greece, our impressive range of columns are designed in the classical Corinthian, Doric, Ionic and Tuscan orders and in both fluted and plain styles.

We cast all our columns in rubber moulds, significantly reducing the visibility of unsightly seams and ensuring only the highest quality stonework is delivered to your project.

Our range of smaller columns are supplied in one-piece shafts, whilst larger options are supplied in drum sections, mirroring the style of traditional natural stone columns and enabling for flexible heights.

As well as our standard range of columns, we can produce half round columns and square column pilasters.

  • Different column heights available
  • Available in a range of standard designs or to bespoke specification
  • Can be combined with other elements

Can be reinforced for structural strength

Our columns are supplied with a hollow core as standard or are supplied in halves for cladding steel.  They can also be filled with reinforced concrete or used to sleeve a structural steel member. We also make sure our columns and pilasters are supplied in component form so as to allow for easy installation. They should be erected on suitable foundations designed by a structural engineer to suit loadings and ground conditions.  For detailed installation information, please see our technical sheets.

Perfectly crafted pilasters

Classical pilasters (sometimes referred to as pillars) are an alternative to our columns.  Our pilasters are rectangular in plan and are handcrafted with the very best attention to detail.  We are able to produce pilasters in a range of heights and widths and we can also create bespoke designs to suit your project’s unique specifications.  Our friendly and expert team will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Designed to combine

Our columns and pillars can be used in conjunction with other architectural elements to create a range of designs and structures. We supply a range of interchangeable capital options and are able to work with you on bespoke designs.  These include porticos (porches) for a grand entranceway, pergolas which are ideal for climbing plants and separating outdoor areas, as well as other garden buildings such as temples and follies.
