Saint Albert Chapel
Skilled in all types of steelwork, our craftsmen are on occasion asked to work with metals that are harder to come by and even harder to work with. The columns for Saint Albert’s Chapel are made of corten steel, an expensive but striking metal that improves in looks and durability with rust.
Ronnie Blake, Managing Director
The Chapel of Saint Albert the Great in George Square Edinburgh was completed in 2012. It was built for Edinburgh University’s Chaplaincy and the friary for ‘The Order of Preachers’ by Simpson & Brown Architects.
Blake Group assisted with the manufacturing structural steel and installation of the key architectural steel features of corten steel columns – the design taking inspiration from the surrounding gardens and adjacent Meadows parkland.
