The Powell family name has been synonymous with the stone masonry industry for over three generations with an extensive portfolio of successful specialist projects across the United Kingdom spanning as far back as 1953. Drawing from the experience gained within the family business Craig Powell set up Powell Masonry Ltd in 1996. Since then Powell Masonry has developed into a highly successful contracting organisation associated with many prestigious works, ranging from the restoration of cathedrals and churches, design and installation of natural stone facades and fitting out of natural stone floors, steps and complex bespoke stonework items…

A selection of our projects.
We are the Architects for £15M Whitworth Art Gallery extension project which opened to the public in 2015.The project is currently shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize. Powell Masonry were the sub-contractors employed to lay significant areas of internal stonework and external paving. They procured and installed the bespoke principle staircase and external seating incorporating carved stonework detailing. We found Powell Masonry to be diligent and provided good quality accurate workmanship. They Were always pleasant and amicable.
We would be pleased to work with them again.
I have worked with Powell Masonry for some 20 years. I have always been, at a time when Craig was a mere young man, most impressed with their mason’s expertise, accuracy and, frankly, magic.
Over the past 3 years Craig Powell, now MD of Powell Masonry, has yet again astounded me by his total understanding of natural stone and its use in the essential part of buildings. The scheme I have been involved in with Powell Masonry required intricate stone lintels, stone dressings and semi-structural stone, all allied with difficult construction and construction phasing procedures, which were resolved with almost consummate ease. As an architect, I cannot imagine working with any better Mason. He, also, in the same house produced floor tiling and wall claddings to a very high quality. Together, we produced a fine house, admired by all, in the center of an important Conservation Area.
I have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending Craig Powell for any master mason’s activity.
