Architects/Contractors: Help needed in building a stone wall!

Stone Wall
Dear readers!

I am working on a project, which will include 300 square meters of walls that need to be clad in the style shown in the photos above and below (this sample was built for me by someone but I am trying to get more offers). The stone will be supplied. What I need is builders who can professionally clad concrete structures in this style.

If you are a building contractor or know a builder or a building contractor who can do this at a reasonable cost, please drop me a line in the comments (your comment will nor appear) or email me at ahmad.humeid@gmail.com.

Thanks for helping out a fellow Architect :-)

    Ahmad, do you need the stones to be cut in thin pieces and plastered on concrete walls? and are the walls interior or exterior? I will check with this certain contractor and let you know..and also where is the location and how fast do you want the work done..I know he’ll be asking ma bout this stuff.

    I don’t know why you’re looking for a building contractor, I helped in building such senseleh long time ago and the side note is that it will always fall one day

    Salam..

    The thickness of stone and plaster will be approximately 15 cm. I already have some of the stone. The sample was built from the same stone.

    No need for ‘cutting’ if you mean machine cutting. The builder who built that wall just used a hammer tool to work on the stones.

    And yes, it will be plastered on a concrete wall. Some of the walls will be high (up to 6 meters actually).

    Location: Amman/Dabouq

    Time to start: As soon as possible.

    As I said: the job is to build around 300 square meters in total over a period of a few months.

    You mislead me there by using the word (clad), ok now I understand,bass wallahi 6 meters high, with stone that is roughly 15 cms thick ,haik, free standing ? does not sound too sturdy, don’t you think? or will they be supported by columns or other walls like the sample you have in the picture? Anyways, I hope to have an answer for you by Saturday.

    Salam.. it is cladding. In Arabic “Talbees”. Definitely NOT free standing.

    First a concrete wall will be built. Then the stones will be added.

    And yes.. similar to the sample, except that concrete and not cement blocks will be behind it.

    Sorry for troubling you with this :-)
