Spanish Granite by BBS - Regents Place, London
BBS supply granite from many countries around the world however Spain was one of the first countries to export to the UK in real volumes for the landscape market about 20 years ago.  The volume of granite sourced from Spain has reduced with the introduction of Chinese granite to the UK marked but it remains an important part of BBS’s product offer as orders can be delivered in much shorter period of time due to quicker manufacturing and shipping arrangements.  This along with some beautiful unique material makes Spanish granite an attractive option.

Granite is nearly always massive (lacking internal structures), hard and tough, and therefore it has gained widespread use as a construction stone. The average density of granite is 2.75 g/cm3 and its viscosity at standard temperature and pressure is ~4.5 • 1019 Pa·s [1] .

BBS supply a wide range of granites from Portugal and have put together a gallery of the most commonly used materials, if however you have a specific requirement and can not see a stone that matches your required aesthetic, please contact us as we are always finding new and exiting products and would be keen to work with you to achieve your required design.

Regents Place has been developing over recent times, with the latest new build being completed in August 2013. This stunning development has created a business base for radio, banking, leisure and retail alike; all surrounding a new public area which is home to music shows, dance, theatre and social relaxation. With quality and clean design being at the forefront of the design teams minds, one stone stood out giving a strong colour tone with a steely crispness to the pattern. The stone choice was perfect for the “Giants’ Causeway” style seating areas within the public space, and aligned seamlessly with the Whitworth blue Yorkstone which was also supplied by BBS.

The granite was sourced and supplied by BBS from Spain, and is called Azul Estremadura fine grain. Along with P J Carey BBS completed the scheme on time and were able to offer the client an accelerated delivery schedule, due to the expertise and professionalism on both sides.
