Hong Kong International Airport Project1 min read

Cawdor Stone are committed to providing excellent service using high-quality materials at all times. We’re a division of an award-winning stone business renowned for large scale and technically complex projects throughout the world, including the granite flooring throughout Hong Kong International Airport.

Let us take you back to one of our exceptional jobs and one we won an award for quality – Hong Kong International Airport. We supplied and installed over £20 million pounds worth of granite in just over 12 months, covering an area equivalent to 20 football pitches. It was an impressive world project and we are so proud to have this on our portfolio.
