How We Work
Swenson Stone Consultants includes among its consultants the former managers of major world stone companies.
Swenson Stone Consultants was born out of a tradition of extremely high-quality stone work. This has been the driving force behind the formation of our team, both in our supply, and our consulting divisions. Our process begins with focusing on the design needs for the project. We often work closely with the architect to find a suitable stone, which will allow us to fulfil their vision, while also being structurally sound, and available at a reasonable cost for the type of material being considered.
We achieve this by utilizing our worldwide team of stone industry professionals, who typically have decades of experience, and substantial contacts within their local regions. This allows us to operate much more easily than many North American based stone companies, who may not have the same access to as extensive and experienced a network. We monitor the stone from selection in the quarry, to final fabrication, and will have employees available to address concerns on-site or after installation, anywhere in the world.
