When the historic Russell Hotel was refurbished before reopening as the Principal London Hotel the tiling contractor chosen to fit out the 338 guest bathrooms and public washrooms was Chiltern Contracts, who specified Kerakoll products for their “ease of use and eco credentials”.
Kerakoll has adopted a “GreenBuilding” philosophy and tries to apply that to everything it does from the construction of an ecologically friendly R&D facility to the development of new green products and the improvement of existing ones.
Time was a factor in some areas so Kerakoll UK’s project manager recommended the use of some of the company’s fast track products: Keracem Eco, a screed that supports foot traffic after 8 hours and can be tiled after 24 hours in standard conditions, Biogel Revolution, the rapid-set version of the Biogel range that is ready for foot-traffic and grouting on floors after 3 hours and grouting on walls after 2 hours, and Fugabella Eco Flex which is also rapid setting.
In areas where the work was not so time-critical Biogel No Limits, the standard set version of the range was used with Fugabella Eco Porcelana 0-5. Fugabella Silicone was used as a sealant throughout.
The results speak for themselves – fast, problem-free tiling giving a beautiful finish for this luxury hotel.
