Parliament House is one of Victoria’s most important historic buildings. Complementing the original design, a new annexe was built as a companion building. The building has been partly sunken into the ground to protect views and integrate it topographically within the eastern garden. Bamstone supplied dimensional cut bluestone products in the form of kerbing, paving and wall cladding for the project design.

“As a stonemason, I have found no other bluestone product that ticks all the boxes. Bamstone Australian bluestone is a product that has limitless applications. It transposes itself through the ages from period to contemporary concepts, while sustaining durability and integrity. The care and detail performed by Bamstone in their product excavation, production and client services is what set’s this long standing brand apart and keeps us going back for more. O’Connor and Sons use Bamstone as a preferred supplier of basalt bluestone as their limitless range of products attain the quality and workmanship one requires to stay ahead and set new limits in the construction industry” – Tim O’Connor, O’Connor & Sons.
