A national network of innovative one-stop outdoor ideas centres

Since the early 1990s, UrbanStone has been the bold, premium-quality-obsessed industry paving products leader that dozens of companies have followed, often slavishly. Over the past year, the company has made any future commercial mimicking very difficult, if not impossible.

Through its parent company, Schaffer Corporation Ltd, UrbanStone has incorporated a number of complementary companies as part of its unique vision to create a national network of innovative one-stop shop Outdoor Ideas and Selection Centres. These inspiring Selection and Ideas Centres are already in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.

Each features the imaginatively presented products of UrbanStone and the recently acquired exclusive range of Archistone (walling, paving and cladding products), Limestone Resources, Carabooda Limestone and Moore River Limestone (two of the nation’s leading manufacturers of natural limestone building products) as well as natural stone imported from around the world. The Western Australian and Victorian branches also offer a range of popular poured and handcrafted in situ concrete products through its exclusive brand of Lumeah Limestone.

Beyond the varied range of paving, walling, feature cladding, bullnoses, stepping and natural limestone blocks on offer there’s also an impressive collection of water feature ideas, outdoor art, garden accessories and furniture, and a wealth of genuinely expert advice.

According to group general manager Michael Falconer, the new concept is designed to satisfy the increasingly high expectations of modern Australian homeowners as well as designers, architects and landscapers.

“People are looking for a wide range of imaginative options that will add value to their largest investment and their lifestyle, which can be viewed and selected at the one location,” says Michael.

“UrbanStone Central is all about providing inspiration and access to a far wider range of outdoor products than has ever been offered before,” he adds.
