Crossrail Coping Stone Inspection - Vigo, Spain
September 29th, 2011 in Case Studies, Factory Visits
This week I visited a granite factory in Vigo, Spain to inspect flamed granite coping stones for the Canary Wharf Crossrail project. Flying into Porto and driving across the border into Spain we arrived in Vigo late that night. The next day the contractor and I arrived at Eurobandas early to check the production. I must say the inspection was very easy, the coping was perfect and the contractor (Commercial Stone Limited) said as much when we saw the example that had been produced. Dimensions spot on, flaming perfect and colour consistent. Some of the raw material had slight movement and darker veins, CSL requested they avoided any inconsistent markings where possible.
