One of the largest purchases of Nova Scotian sandstone in the last century
The Armour Group Limited (The Armour Group) is pleased to have secured locally quarried sandstone from Wallace Quarries Ltd. (Wallace Quarries) to be used as the main cladding material for the Queen’s Marque development now taking shape on the Halifax Waterfront.
This substantial procurement makes it the largest order for Nova Scotia sandstone in over 50 years. Wallace Quarries dates back to 1863 and represents an important legacy of locally founded, owned and operated Nova Scotian business. The choice of Wallace sandstone demonstrates Queen’s Marque’s commitment to being shaped by Nova Scotia’s past, present and future by incorporating the region’s natural resources in a respectful and artful manner.
