Case study
Proud to have the opportunity to contribute to the construction of what is now the European Union's tallest building, In-Opera UK supplied the Shard project with 120 tonnes of Kuppam Green Granite from their Italian factory partners 'La Ponte Marmi.'    Fulfilling the specifications of Renzo Piano's  strikingly eclectic design ,the material was used to cover 700m2 of exterior  flooring space.
In-Opera was once again chosen ahead of its competitors for being able to provide the complete range of finishes and sizes required, all in house, and within the proscribed fast track construction time frame.
