    Holland Park - Titanium & Silver Travertine

    June 8th, 2014 in Case Studies, Factory Visits, General, Uncategorized

    I spent a day in a factory near Siena inspecting some sample slabs from blocks prepared for our residential swimming pool project to which we are supplying Italian Silver Travertine (walls), Iranian Titanium Travertine (walls) and finely bush hammered Thala Beige (pool surround). The pool is actually underground so the Titanium vein cut travertine is an inspired choice by architect Michael Tyler (www.sm-j.com). This when vein cut and in this case coloured resin filled could be said to look a bit ‘earth-like’ as you can see from the images.

    Nike Store Regent Street - Pietra Serena

    April 21st, 2014 in Case Studies, Factory Visits, Uncategorized

    A recent call by a contractor to our office requested samples and prices for Pietra Serena sandstone and a super quick delivery time. The size was 1200x800x20mm in a honed finish and the quantity was 1200sqm.

    We sharpened our pencil on the price and more importantly the lead time. We needed to load the first 200sqm in 10 days and then a full truck of 400sqm a couple of days later. This 600sqm needed to be on site for 28th March. Another truck a week later and then the balance a week after that.
