London Mithraeum, Bloomberg European Headquarters

In 2015 we were approached by one of the UK’s leading stone restoration and installation companies to supply black granite slabs for this prestigious project.  Samples of the purest Shanxi black stone with a variety of surface finishes were imported to the UK for evaluation, slip testing and approval.

The scope of supply required visits to the quarry and factory in China to ensure that the extraction and processing of the stone would be done in a sustainable and ethical way as part of the procurement process.  Detailed drawings of each individual piece of stone were sent to the factory and subsequent visits were made to check the quality of stone used across the project, the uniformity of surface finish and the dimensional accuracy. The stone was carefully packed  for shipping and we arranged specialist open top containers to enable safe un-loading of the very largest pieces using a HIAB crane at our premises.
