    New Embassy dry lay inspection

    April 15th, 2016 in Factory Visits

    We are currently supplying around 1000sqm 50mm Pietra Del Mare Limestone to clad the New Embassy in London. The specification started 3-4 years ago with Dunston Limestone from Lincoln. This ideal material swiftly progressed to a French alternative to accommodate the sizes and quantity required. However the French limestone from Metz was from an aggregate quarry and the colour changed considerably over the period of specification and by the time the stone was needed we had to find something else! Another search and another solution. This time it was Pietra Del Mare.  A limestone supplied by Grassi Pietre in Vicenza. This was not a million miles away from the original spec both in colour and structure and very consistent too.
