The above diagram demonstrates which names are given to the many technical specifications involved in the development and production of your stone surfaces. In order to calculate your stone quote there are a number of factors that you will have to take into account first:

Overall worktop lengths and depths:
In the following example all the worktops are a standard 600mm deep apart from the hob run which is 700mm deep. The sink run measures 2650mm x 600mm, the left hand return from the tall unit to the wall measures 1150mm x 600mm and the right hand return from the polished end to the wall measures 1500mm. So the overall linear meters required is 2650+1150+1500 = 5300mm.
To input this, you would select the 551-625mm field and enter ‘5.3’ in the ‘Worktop Length’ field. The hob run measures 2700mm in length and measures 700mm in depth so you will need to add 2.7 to the 625-700mm field.

Polished Edges / Profile Length:
To calculate the amount of Profile Length you will need to total all the exposed edges of the worktops (they are shown in red here) 2650+600+600+900+2700+550+200 = 8200mm the extra 200 are for the 100mm returns on the Breakfront.

Cutouts for Hobs or inset sinks:
You will need to allow for any cutouts that you desire in the work surfaces. In this example there is a hob cutout.

Cutouts for Undermount or Belfast sinks:
Some sinks are bonded to the underneath of the worktop so the cutout is polished in this example there is a full bowl and a half bowl so there is a 1.5 polished sink cut-out. You will also need to include tap holes and 1 set(five) of drainer grooves either on one side or both if desired.

Granite upstands , window sills and extras:
Other extras you should consider include an upstand that runs vertically up the wall at the back of the worktop as an alternative to tiling, (in the example coloured Sky Blue)
1150+3900+1500+2650 = 9200mm in length with the top edge polished. You may also require a window sill which are usually 20mm thick in this example it is 1750mm with the front
edge polished.You will also have to calculate for ‘Breakfronts’ where a section on a run steps out from the rest in one piece as in the hob run below.

Island Units and Peninsulars:
For Island Units and Peninsulars you should select the worktop thickness as 901-1000mm and instead of entering the worktop length enter the square meterage. To calculate this multiply the length by the width of your unit and enter the value in metre, i.e. for an island/peninsular which is 1.5m by 3m you should enter 4.5 into the length box. For an island unit consider that the profile will run all the way around, i.e. for an island unit of 4.5m² the amount of profile would be 1.5m+3m+1.5m+3m = 9m. For a peninsular, consider which parts of the piece will join other pieces or where it butts up against the wall. Please calculate the profile work needed, i.e. for a peninsular piece at 4.5m² that butts against the wall at the 1.5m end, and joins a 0.6m run at one side; the profile length would be 1.5m+3m+2.4m = 6.9m.
