Project/Product Description

The site consists of luxury apartment blocks in a very affluent and central location of london based close to some londons most key landmarks. The development consists of 2 to 3 bedroom apartments all produced off site with the latest construction methodology. The exciting new destination featuring 7.5 acres of beatiufully lanscaped open spaces and magnificient choreographed central water features and 1800 high quality homes. This apartment block consists of 200 pods, which were produced at a manufacturing facility and put together at the development site. These products were supplied to the second block of an ongoing project due to be complete over the next few years. We are now in the process of moving onto the third stage of this project with talks now in place for the third blocks design scheme.

Materials Used

St Georges wanted to create an elegant and beautiful design scheme for this project, and with our extensive range of unique and innovative format options we were more than equipped to help. After a number of discussions, it was decided that marble sourced from Turkey complimented with porcelain from the far east would be the perfect solution to make this vision come to life. St Georges wanted to offer their buyers both a white and black colour scheme option for their apartments, titled 'dusk' and 'dawn'. The black colour scheme (dusk) bathroom featured our St Laurent Hexagon marble on the floor, mixed with bold St Laurent Marble vanity units and a simplistic black metro tile on the walls to compliment.. For buyers that preferred a lighter colour scheme (dawn), our Mugla white Hexagons were used on the floor along with Mugla White vanity units and white marble affect metro tiles on the walls, these metro tiles were also then used in the kitchen space. All of the marble hexagons and vanity units were produced at our factory plant in Turkey using our own state of the art modern machinery.


The biggest advantage of supplying projects with natural stone sourced from Turkey is that we have our own manufatcuring facilities, these tiles and mosaics were produced and supplied from one quarry.
Our manufacturing facilities in Denizli (Turkey) are powered solely through solar energy, our factory has invested in solar panels and has been producing its own energy and now also supplies to the national grid.
We also recently changed and updated our water recycling facilities to enable us to reduce wastage and our facilities are constantly being updated and improved to achieve a high level of green standards.
Generally speaking, marble processing plants are exempted from continual checks by environmental agencies as the waste produced do not pollute the environment. At Ionic Stone, we adhere to the following our environmental principles:

We abide by and endeavour to exceed the expectation of national and international laws and regulations, and produce goods within the framework of a management system that improves our care for the environment.
We adopt production lines that prompt energy efficiency and economical use of natural resources.
We strive to reduce waste even if it is natural.
We manage our business with a system that integrates best practices for all aspects of our business, from top to bottom.
Operationally, our targets are:

To reduce waste (off-cuts etc),
To reduce usage of marble reinforcing chemical (epoxy resin),
To implement recycling throughout the factory and the offices.

Issues Faced

The main issue we encountered as we developed through this project was when we found that the UK based fabricator initially contracted to cut the slabs we supplied for the vanity units weren't able to. As a solution to this issue, we then decided to step in and have all of the vanity units produced and cut to size in Turkey in our own factory plant. Overall, it became a very cost effective solution for the developer in the long run.

Additional Comments

We as a company are always looking to find innovative ways to develop our designs and processes, we have developed our production methods and are now supplying our own patent machines to factories across the globe with our partners Breton.
