Stone & Ceramic has completed an extensive tile installation using a Mapei system at London’s newest STK Steakhouse & Bar. Located at The Gantry hotel in Stratford, the installation for refurbishment and fit-out contractor, ITC, features a stunning charcoal-toned scheme throughout the main restaurant floors, walls and wash rooms. Mapei products specified included uncoupling membrane, two EMICODE® EC1 Plus certified adhesives and signature grout, Ultracolor Plus.

Designed by Ica Studio, The Gantry is positioned close to Westfield Shopping Centre and the Olympic Village and enjoys stunning rooftop views of London. STK Steakhouse is positioned on its 18th floor and features two rooftop terraces.

The tile installation throughout the steakhouse and bar includes 1200x600mm and 250x50mm porcelain floor tiles and brick-effect wall tiles. During the installation, Stone & Ceramic installed Mapeguard UM 35 waterproofing, uncoupling anti-fracture membrane to floor areas, to aid with the even distribution of potential in service stresses to the applied tiling. Two Mapei cementitious adhesives with very low VOC formulations were used to install the tiles: Keraquick S1 adhesive – a quick-setting, deformable cementitious adhesive – and Keraflex, with an extended open time. Tiles were then grouted into place with Ultracolor Plus grout – Mapei’s anti-efflorescence, quick-setting and drying polymer modified grout which features water-repellent DropEffect® and mould-resistant BioBlock®.
