Back to School for Denfind Stone

Denfind is always keen to share the knowledge and expertise that we have acquired over the last 12 years for the benefit of others.

Denfind has previously identified a shortage of skilled stonemasons familiar with using Angus stone and the company has been working closely with Dundee & Angus College and Historic Scotland over the last year to develop additional learning modules for the construction sector apprentices to enable them to have dedicated time working with natural stone. We see the benefits of this joint initiative as critical in maintaining these traditional skills sets which are sadly in short supply. A more concise, bespoke training module for existing qualified trades people is also being developed. We will report updates on these initiatives as they progress.

Denfind has also been involved with local schools to work with teachers and young people to aid their transition from school to the workplace environment. The ‘Developing Young Workers’ initiative has included a group of 5th year pupils from Carnoustie High School visiting our premises for a tour around the quarry and production facility and meeting the staff, as well as a question and answer session, in which our staff can share their experiences from the workplace which will hopefully assist the young people in their transition from school and in their future careers. A similar session was also recently undertaken at Seaview Primary, Monifieth.

  • Sourcing Stone

    Gannochy Bridge in Angus is a Cat B listed bridge built circa 1724, crossing the River North Esk to the north of Edzell. We were recently approached by Kilmac who had been awarded the contract by Angus Council for essential repairs, to see if we could source and provide stone to match the project. We were able to provide a match, greatly reducing the lead in time for the contractor and as a result, the project was completed ahead of schedule.

  • Caird Park Bridge

    Within the past couple of months, Tayside Contracts and Land & Building Services completed the construction of a new road bridge in Caird Park in Dundee, to improve access ahead of work commencing on the new Regional Performance Centre for Sport. Denfind Stone worked closely with Land & Building to ensure the correct stone products were used in the construction. A concrete structure was assembled and Denfind Stone was clad onto the structure to give it a more natural finish. You can click on the link below to see time-lapse footage of the full construction and the finished result, which we are sure you will agree looks great. Time Lapse video
