AAS Advantage for Masons, Contractors, Builders

Advanced Architectural Stone (AAS) is able to source all the required stone for a project combining three product materials – dry vibrant-tamp cast stone, wet-pour architectural precast concrete, and architectural GFRC (Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete). This creates significant competitive advantage for customers while bidding jobs.

The AAS team has bandwidth and very well thought out support system to work closely with customers in every phase of the project – design review and assist using CAD drawings, engineering connection details to hang stone pieces, project specific custom design and manufacturing of stone products, construction planning support, installation training, onsite troubleshooting, etc.
