Exceptional stonework has been a defining architectural element on many of the world’s most admired buildings and private residences for centuries. However, this beauty historically came at a cost, as building with stone has always been slow, messy and unpredictable in terms of controlling the final look and budget. With fewer artisan masons in the trade, these challenges became even greater in recent years. With a process invented for shaping natural stone with water, New World Stoneworks makes it possible to view an entire project in CAD before a single stone is even cut. Architects are embracing the system because it makes it possible to specify real stone in any design, knowing it will come in on budget and way ahead of schedule. This technology is now protected by multiple patent filings worldwide.
