2018 Architecture Awards

Build 2018 Architecture Awards 54 Best Stone Installation Specialists – UK & Best Commercial Stone Installation Project: Cinnamon Kitchen Westgate Shopping Centre, Oxford MKWSurfaces supplies natural and engineered stone surfaces to both trade and end clients. We invited Alan Brian Nussbaum to tell us more. “Fundamentally, our aim is to change the way people buy stone by making it a simple a and smooth process, and one that comes world class customer service levels and great attention detail. Each project is unique and personal, and we treat them as such, from beginning to end.” As testimony to this approach, Alan references one of the firm’s recent success stories, a boathouse project offering unique opportunities to create something truly innovative and beautiful. “Recently, we were commissioned a project in a boathouse which needed to be completed in a natural stone like marble and we proposed an ultra Sinterized porcelain surface which was lightweight and easier to be installed than conventional marble or granite. The proposed surface is only 8mm thick and our teams were able to reach hidden and small areas to cover the interiors of the boathouse since the weight of porcelain is much lower than that of natural stone.” Operating in such a fast paced, technology reliant market means that MKW Surfaces has to work hard to remain at the forefront of the latest industry developments, as Alan highlights. “At MKW Surfaces we like to think we are always at the cutting edge of technology within the construction and architecture industries. We apply the use of the latest technologies across the business. Starting from GPS technology which can track our staff movement, we are able to create visual routes for organizing our projects daily. GPS technology also provides us with information that is valuable for Health & Safety training. “To provide clients with the highest possible quality products, we also use the latest technology in production, using the newest CNC machinery and replacing our beds, blades and other tools with the newest versions always, as they come with improved accuracy and quality, reducing KW Surfaces offers the most comprehensive range in the UK of both natural stones that include marble, granite, quartzite, limestone, gemstone and more. The firm is an approved supplier of all the major brands of quartz, porcelain, ceramics and Terrazzo among other types of man-made surfaces, so clients can rest assured that they are receiving quality when they work with the firm, a fact which Alan Brian Nussbaum, one of the Directors of the Company, is keen to reinforce. “Here at MKW Surfaces, our team is formed by skilled and experienced stonemasons, templaters, installers and technicians ranging from 8-20 years’ experience in the field. As such, we can provide our clients, who range from architects, interior designers, and property developers through to design aficionados, with the highest possible level of service and client support. We work with them to transform old spaces into functional pieces of art.
