Commercial Stone Work
Solid stone is the perfect material for use in a commercial environment. It’s hard wearing, looks luxurious and requires virtually no maintenance.
At Granite Craft Direct managed by our commercial division South coast Stone we have a large portfolio of commercial work including projects for Jamie Oliver, The Shard London, Selfridges, Busaba Thai restaurants, Bowlplex, Zizzi restaurants, Pizza express, New Look, Prezzo and local Coffee Shops.
