Our History

George Stone Limited was started by brothers George and Charles Stone back in 1933, and in 1956 George Stone (Hastings) Limited was officially formed, although the company was not incorporated until 1958.

As master builders, George Stone was a major player in local construction having a hand in much of the development of the area. Many roads today show the scope of our work and can be identified by having “stone” in their name.

More recently, we have concentrated on our strengths, and currently undertake all maintenance for East Sussex County Council within a 15 mile radius and work closely with several architects. We're also the preferred contractor for many local schools and the National Trust.

It's a well known fact within the industry that in 10-15 years time there will be a severe shortage of skilled tradesmen unless something is done about it now. For that reason, we have a comprehensive training program which is open to all members of staff, and we currently have an apprentice undertaking NVQ Level 2 in Decorative Finishes. 

We also work closely with local secondary schools, taking part in careers fairs and offering work experience to those interested in a career within our industry.
Our commitment to training helped us to gain the 'Investors in People' standard and brought recognition to the company when we won the Sussex Business Awards 'Learning Pays' category sponsored by the Sussex Learning & Skills Council.

We've an excellent reputation locally for the quality of our work and our highly qualified workforce, and have won many awards in the last 50 years. These include The Federation of Master Builders South East Region 2007, an English Heritage Award for the Battle Museum and three further Heritage Awards for private properties including the most recent, for Penhurst Retreat Centre.

Our work with local schools and the community also gained us a 1066 Business Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Local Community.

We are proudly accredited to The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme which is a Government national register. All our tradesmen are employed on a direct basis, and we have recently undertaken to have all staff fully CRB checked.

Company Policies

Once we are contracted to begin work on a project we follow a very strict set of policies, guidelines, government regulations and internal procedures that have been developed over many years. We strive to ensure that our service to you is of the highest possible standards and that our commitment to health and safety for you and our workforce is consistently adhered to.
