The Shackerley Group supplied more than 5,500 light stone coloured, polished and fully vitrified ceramic granite slabs, each measuring 1,200 x 600mm, for the 233-bedroom wing.The material, made by Italian company Mirage, had been used predominantly for heavy-duty floors, worktops and vanity units. At the Hilton, it was chosen for its thermal and acoustic insulation properties.
