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 a significant competitive advantage for customers while bidding jobs.
