We would like to congratulate our second year apprentice Josh Underwood who did exceptionally well, coming second out of eight finalist to win a silver medal at the SkillBuild 2017 UK National Final.

Architectural Stone takes great pride in developing our apprentices into highly skilled stone masons.  The combination of site experience and learning at Bath College provides our apprentices with a great foundation to move forward and achieve a high level of skill within stonemasonry.

Josh’s success shows our investment in him and his training in Bath College to be extremely worthwhile.


The SkillBuild 2017 UK National Final was part of the Skills Show, the country’s largest skills, careers and apprenticeships event.   Thousands of people visited the show from November 16 to November 18, which finished with a large awards ceremony on the Saturday night.   Competitors are judged according to strict marking criteria, which takes in their ability to interpret the drawings they are given and execute them.
