At StoneCycling, we receive daily sample requests and global project enquiries. We’re working hard to create a product portfolio that caters to each project for each budget in each country. But the fact is that we’re not quite there yet.
About 10% of the total projects in the European market are a potential match with our products. That means, unfortunately, 90% is no match. Those who are all have something in common:
1. Strong focus on sustainability: Our products are either/or waste-based, up-cycled, bio-based, or offer a low-carbon solution. They are all produced with a circular economy in mind.
2. Strong focus on design: Facades, walls and floors made with our products are real eye-catchers of a project. Our building materials are not just any other cladding material.
3. Matching budget: Our products are priced in the higher range of building materials. Projects focusing on cost optimisation (usually social housing or any real estate outside A-locations) often don’t have the budget for our products.
It’s essential to lock in the correct budget for our products in the early design stages. The ultimate client (developer or investor) should be aware of their specific choice of aesthetic, sustainable building materials in a higher price range, or it will become challenging to maintain the product of choice in subsequent stages.
