Designing Veneers, Building Facades using Architectural Stone Products
Manufactured architectural stone provides a number of benefits for creating building veneers – flexibility with materials selection, consistency and more expanded range of design options, possibilities.
Veneers using Manufactured Stone – Advantage ONE, Flexibility with Materials Selection:
- Dry-cast architectural stone provides flexibility in creating complex curved panels.
- Whereas wet-cast precast concrete is able to provide strong structural properties along with a range of options for surface finishing.
- Architectural GFRC (also known as light weight concrete) provides lighter weight thin building veneer that can integrate with brick veneer or other higher elevation applications where much less weight of stone can simplify the structure and installation requirements.
AAS has experienced team and manufacturing technology to select and combine materials as required while designing optimal solution for building veneers.

Veneers using Manufactured Stone – Advantage TWO, Consistency:
Building veneers are critical to a design vision of any building. With the computerized color lab, and automated batch plant, AAS has ability to manufacture products with consistent color as well as structural properties for project of any size. AAS team is able to match products for a project even after number of years.

Veneers using Manufactured Stone – Advantage THREE, Design Options:
Bring in your control samples from other products, or from buildings much older. Show your design renderings. AAS team will be able to match the color, finish and texture while also working with engineering team for meeting the structural requirements. AAS has experience in matching natural limestone, terracotta, or other traditional designs such as, for example Jeffersonian style, or Art Deco style veneers as well.
AAS has the right manufacturing set up, technology know how, and craftsmanship to create any kind of building veneer a designer might imagine.
