Why choose

DesignStone?

DesignStone combines two everyday building materials – light-gauge steel studs and thin precast concrete cladding units – to create a nearly impenetrable exterior supported by a strong, durable and inflammable framing. Unlike most prefabricated concrete solutions, DesignStone offers remarkable design flexibility in terms of footprint, floorplans, and window and door locations.

Robust Materials & Construction Methods.
Modular and Panelized Systems Available.
Customization Options & Fast Delivery.

Fast Construction, Minimal Waste.
Architecturally Beautiful & Energy Efficient.

Modern.

Resilient.

Concrete. 

Finishes so durable, we had to make them timeless.

Architects and homeowners can select from a wide variety of colors and finishes using DesignStone. And because the exterior panels are manufactured close to the jobsite, they use local materials that are consistent with regional aesthetics. They require almost no maintenance, even in harsh environments.

BARNETT FAMILY

Home Owner

“I have built two homes using the DesignStone Building System and the finished products were amazing. The process far exceeded our expectations in all aspects”

B. CAMERON

Building Surveyor

In my over 30 years involvement in the building industry, I have seen many new products come into the industry that comes with gratuitous claims of being the "one" but many sadly don't deliver, but the DesignStone product does indeed tick all the boxes.

“Having peace of mind knowing our investment will stand up to wildfires, extreme winds and is virtually maintenance free reaffirms our decision to use DesignStone”

DesignStone LLC

M. SANDER

Engineer

I personally have designed and been involved with a number of DesignStone projects and have been able to see the features and benefits of the system first hand.

Architect

“The entire wall system is of non-combustible materials. There is a very high resistance to burning, the spread of heat and flames, and resistance to collapse during fires”
