How did the project come to pass by Tile Warehouse?

We have been working with Westfield/Scentre Group (SG) for over 7 years with different flooring/Marble options for the revamp of 277 so there had been a lot of interaction. Prior to this, we had supplied tile to a number of Westfield's across NZ. For 277 Westfield we eventually chose a stunning marble, "Volokas", CLICK HERE for details.

Why did Scentre Group chose to partner with Tile Warehouse on this particular Westfield project?

SG were looking for an organisation that had the scale and financial strength to deliver operationally as well as substantial knowledge and expertise. They chose Tile Warehouse because we have in-depth knowledge of natural stone, the logistics to manage a project of this scale and understanding of SG's requirement's. Also, the Volokas Marble we submitted met their design requirements.

As part of the tendering process we had to submit samples which is where our combined stone experience helped. We could see the issues and discussed in depth with SG how to manage these.

Why 'Greek' Volokas marble?

The SG design team selected Volokas as the right look even though using natural marble in a shopping malls in NZ is not common. However, SG are very experienced in shopping mall sealing, cleaning and maintenance so understand the requirement's from both an installation and maintenance perspective.

How many months of planning was involved before product selection?

Planning to product choice took at least 8 months from the time we started to submit samples with different options. Post selection was a visit to Greece with the SG to agree on control samples. Then the hard work started!
