Crea France provides more than just building materials. With our specialized knowledge of masonry and masonry installation, we can help you choose the right stone for your project. Our services include consultations with CEO Claude Puaux, international stone searches, CAD shop drawings, and delivery of materials to the job site.
Architects and/or clients typically call us to discuss the scope of stone requirements for the project. We then follow-up the initial conversation with a packet of high-resolution photographs of our products and/or possibly stone
samples that we think may address your needs. If appropriate, we may
then schedule a meeting with you. It is helpful for us to know the aproximate square footage and rough layout of the area you are surfacing in stone, so we can give the best possible advice and estimate. Finding the right material for your project can be a daunting and exhausting process.
We are oftenhired to facilitate and manage this process. We have a vast knowledge of quarrying as well as strategic alliances with numerous quarries in France, Bulgaria, US, Canada, China and Israel. We have found that the key to perfect fabrication begins with precise shop drawings. We take great pride in the clarity and attention to detail in our drawings. After shop drawings are approved, they are sent to the appropriate supplier and manufactured to spec.
Controlling the supply of your material is critical to many fabrication processes. Our firsthand quarry experience and understanding allow us to specify the method of stone extraction and direction of the grain. We also have operations managers in all the foreign countries in which we do business to oversee the packing and shipment of our clients’ materials.
