Aiming for excellence
We have developed a set of solutions, taken special precautions and progressive measures to optimize workflow, planning tasks and production stages to perfection, adding value to our organization and ensuring high quality and on-time delivery. Our approach to each project starts with a carefully carried out analysis, which is one of the most exciting moments of our work. We integrate customer requirements with our expertise, anticipating their needs and working with them in a synergistic way in order to plan and organize the work in hand, and resolve any related issues. We provide an exceptional professional service, supporting the Client throughout the entire process, especially in the case of large and complex projects, where an analytical approach is essential in order to organize every aspect of the project, and ensure the entire production process goes according to plan.
Where required, we provide technical services to analyze the specific needs of each project, making an assessment of the location with on site sketches, graphical details, photographic data, and carrying out technical drawings and three-dimensional representations. At the start of the project, our technical experts select the most suitable types of work (and applications) and proceed with the complex planning of cutting lists and cladding patterns, to produce the various different elements that will make up the finished work.
Sourcing, selecting and supplying materials
Coop Marble + ensures the supply of the materials needed to carry out any project or work, especially Apuan marble such as Bianco Carrara, Calacatta, Statuary, Arabescato , Bardiglio and others, in many variations, directly from the extraction basins. Our technical consultant, an expert in stone materials, carries out the sourcing and selection of all the materials ranging from marble, granite, onyx to stones from any source, selecting the finest based on color and design requirements, in order to achieve the best visual impact when the work is completed.
Each phase of the production process is rigorously and analytically recorded with photograph data, to inform the client of how work is progressing, ensuring that best use has been made of the selected and approved materials. The Project Manager records samples of materials, processing times; book-matching; combining cladding and covering materials to achieve the best aesthetic effect; details of special processing techniques; pre-laying and testing; numbering and classifying pieces for final assembly and installation; packaging and shipping. In certain cases, where necessary, video footage is filmed to document the work process more completely and comprehensively.
After carrying out a preliminary analysis of the project and drawing up cutting lists and cladding patterns, our Technical staff are able to program cutting and processing to match project requirements, using custom made CAD/CAM software on CMS Brembana machining centers. These machines offer total versatility in every aspect of cutting work and CNC functions, from project drawings to the arrangement and positioning of different sized work-pieces on the worktable, including tool path optimization. As well as significantly speeding up work times and facilitating time management, the ability to program repetitive cutting operations on pieces forming part of the same job, makes it possible to accurately reproduce each item to the original measurements. .
The projects we complete are the result of a complex process, based on the finest precision workmanship, whose aesthetic value adds to the value of the finished work. Our personal style is widespread through the numerous works and prestigious projects we have realized for nationally and internationally renowned Stone Contractors, Architecture Firms and Designers..
