An architectural challenge

This project was a great challenge for builders, in terms of design and quality; top-quality was one of the most important requirements among the project. The design of the building was followed by Imre Makovecz, and the building was built according to Tamás Dobrosi’s plan between September 2017 and August 2018.

The project was very demanding and our partner in Hungary, Tető Horn Ltd., fulfilled all the requirements successfully. They provided a high-quality slate as built-in material, as well as experienced workmanship and service, meeting all the deadlines. The material provided for the impressive 7800m2 roof was our dark grey, smooth CUPA 12 slate.
