RELIABILITY ‘ AND SUBSTANCE – An exclusive turnkey service
The company has just the right structure designed to offer architectural firms an exclusive turnkey service, complete from project consulting and technical solutions, through to supplying materials and handling all requests, even the most challenging. Once an order has been placed, Piccini Marmi then proceeds to source material, by searching, selecting and acquiring the most valuable stone directly from the original quarries, even for large scale job orders, for which we guarantee consistency and uniformity.
After the company has purchased all the raw and semi-finished materials needed for a project, they are placed in storage facilities in preparation for a mock-up presentation, and to undergo a selection process with architects and clients. All materials are screened and selected for approval.
Controlling each processing stage
In the subsequent stages the whole production process gets underway. All processing is carried out in Italy by expert marble masons and craftsmen, combining the wisdom of ancient craft techniques with advanced numerical control technology, creating an indissoluble union between tradition and innovation. The high automation level of the production process allows for the cutting and machining of solid blocks, to make architectural and design elements such as sinks, washbasins, bathtubs, frames, bas-reliefs, stairs, as well as other processes and finishes using waterjet cutting.
To complete the process in the pre-installation stages is the dry-setting, blending and matching of all selected, finished material. All cladding and covering stone is meticulously assembled to achieve the right aesthetic blend of color, shading, and perfectly book-matched patterns and veining, as well as to ensure each solid element fits perfectly. Waterjet cut medallions and inlays are also dry laid. Architects and project managers are on-site to check and verify the process.
Packing and Shipping
The packing stages are extremely important since all the finished materials, before being packed in wooden crates, are numbered in sequence to ensure final installation as established in the dry setting stage. Once packing is complete, the shipping manager will see that the crates are loaded into containers for shipment to the building site.
