About McLaren Stone Ltd
Based in the North of Glasgow, our tradesmen have experience ranging from 20-40 years in the stone & construction industry, specialising in the installation and fabrication of natural stone new builds, restoration and conservation projects as well as fireplaces, staircases and commissioned pieces.
The company is run by Stephen McLaren. Who completed his apprenticeship with Hunter & Clark Ltd in 1990 and attended Glasgow College of Building and Printing gaining an SVQ level 3 (PDA level 6) stone masonry certificate and a (PDA level 7) Advanced stonemasonry certificate.
Over the last 20 plus years he has worked with several companies in the Glasgow area and beyond. Not forgetting working alongside some of the most talented masons in the UK, some of which are sadly no longer with us today. However it is through these men that the secrets of this trade live and are passed from mason to mason down the years.
In Stephen's time as a stonemason he has worked on numerous high profile projects; Kelvingrove Art Galleries, Buchanan Galleries Shopping Centre, George Square Post Office re-development, Scottish Parliament Building (Edinburgh), Lamlash Parish Church (Isle of Arran), Lews' Castle (Stornoway, Isle of Lewis), Martyrs' Monument (St Andrew's) and Almeezan Islamic School.
McLaren Stone Ltd specialise in the conservation and restoration of historic buildings, monuments and sculptures and the carving and building of new ones. We have completed work for McLaughlin Construction, City Gate Construction, Emtec Group, Elmwood Projects, Glasgow Piping Centre Association, The High School of Glasgow, Sea Mill Hydro as well as many domestic customers.
Our sister company McLaren Ceramics can take care of all your tiling needs, run by Stephen's uncle. James McLaren has over 30 years experience and has tiled everything from swimming pools to ensuites all over the UK
We pride ourself on very high quality craftsmanship and being able to complete projects within the contracted time frame and are proud Accredited Members of The Guild of Master Craftsmen.
