Vanderbilt University Dorm (In-Progress)

This work-in-progress dormitory is breath taking. The elaborate stone work required and attention to the smallest detail is what sets this project apart. Every piece of stone is fabricated to an exact size and has its specific place in the wall– many with complex angles. Our Tennessee Crab Orchard Stone is found on the exterior, interior, and in the courtyards of this new, uniquely Tennessean project. Silvara provided the sawed Rubble for the wall stone, plus a sawed stone for flooring and steps in various interiors and exteriors. We at Silvara are proud to be a part of such an amazing project!

Our Tennessee Crab Orchard Stone was chosen for the exterior walkways surrounding the newly constructed Tennessee State History Museum. Sawn Tennessee Gray Stone was chosen for it’s modern, clean appearance and was sandblasted to offer a lifetime slip resistant surface. The outside skirting of the walkway is lined with our Natural Surface Gray Stone which is much darker in color and dramatically textured, creating a beautiful contrast between the two.

The focal point of the entire landscape is a magnificent fountain built of Tennessee Crab Orchard Gray Stone. This fountain is crafted from carefully fabricated solid Gray Stone blocks forming the main walls. A two-tiered wall allows the stone to protrude over the edge contained by an elevated wall, while the basin itself is lined with thinner gray slabs. The entire hardscape is tastefully illuminated and absolutely spectacular at night. Admission is free and is a must see for all traveling to and through the Nashville area.

MKSK Studios designed this climbing wall out of our sawed veneer. The cap stone presented a challenging fabrication element referred to as a ramp and twist. Even the restroom building incorporated our beautiful sawed veneer.

The buildings have a rusticated base course with our natural cleft stone displaying rich, dark color tones.

Silvara Stone Strip Rubble

This state of the art medical facility used our variegated strip rubble as a wainscot-esque featured element around the building as well as at the main entrance.

To give the split face texture, each piece was hand-chiseled on site. This also helped achieve the radius around the front entrance. With a color spectrum of darker browns, lighter tans, buffs and pinks, the beauty of Crab Orchard stone transforms the facility into a unique installation.

Teton Masonry, our skilled masonry division, laid out columns with three straight sides and tapered back sides, adding an extra dimension to the installation. In addition to the columns, our masonry team had to put 45 degree inside corners between the pane glass windows and hand chisel the radius along the top of the entrance to the facility.

The result is a lasting beauty that will endure for decades to come.

We cut out the center of the driveway and laid a stone paver accent to complete this front entrance makeover.

We custom laid the block for the planters and laid our Chestnut Hill Veneer on the exterior and interior where exposed and capped off the walls with our hand pitched sawn cap.

A beautiful accent to this amazing home makeover.

Our professional and experienced team of stone cutters were able to fabricate every piece to the specific detail required for the project. Hardaway Construction was the general contractor on the project and Valley Crest Landscape Development did an incredible job with the stone installation.

Silvara Stone was chosen because of our 50+ years of experience with this type of detailed, high profile project. Every Radius, every cut, every angle had to be spot on for this to come together.

More than 1500 tons of raw material was quarried and fabricated to complete this project, and more than 10,000 square feet of our Crab Orchard Stone was installed. As you can see, there is nothing in the earth that can match the beauty and character of our sawed Crab Orchard stone.
