Shell Gris Abrasion Testing Big Commercial Stone Project
November 25th, 2011 in Case Studies, Technical Data
This week I had to confirm the suitability of our Shell Gris for a very large commercial project I am currently working on. The building in The City would be the workplace for over 6000 people and with the design life of 50 years. This requirement would mean the stone needs to withstand 150,000,000 visitors during its life (6000 x 2 (to and from work) x 250 (working days in the year x 50 (design life). If you add the fact that everyone might go out for lunch and that then doubles to 300,000,000!! But that would be taking it too far detail wise!
