Fosters + Partners - 551 West 21st Street Inspection
January 26th, 2016 in Care & Maintenance, Factory Visits, Quarry Visit, Stone Finishes
We recently organised a trip to Italy to inspect the most recent Atlantic blocks that arrived into Italy, the project is a Fosters + Partners – 551 West 21st Street, New York.
The sample presented to the client was reasonably plain and with a few subtle veins so we were to avoid any block that looked like it could potentially be a bit lively. To make sure we had the right blocks we needed to thoroughly soak the blocks and inspect the three visible sides to ensure to the best of our ability that the blocks had the right aesthetic all the way through. The blocks go under the gang saw next week and all being well the slabs will be as expected.
