In Nov 2019, Gogeddit Stone was awarded the manufacturing contract to deliver the Balmoral Quay Stage 2 Project. Supply of White Macaubas Quartzite Countertops.

Balmoral Quay is located at 43 Liverpool Street, Rippleside, and has an approximate land area of 22,000m2.

The site is situated on flat reclaimed coastal land at the toe of a broadly linear escarpment fronting Corio Bay and adjacent to Rippleside Park.

Gogeddit Stone has been engaged to deliver Stage 2 of this project which consists of 14 boutique townhouses and 9 apartments.

Quotation and Sample

This project took 2 months from quote to delivery. In early November 2019, we received an inquiry from our Australian client and requested to submit a honed finish sample. However, this kind of expensive quartzite is rarely available in small samples, but quickly we made a quotation. At the same time, decided to cut a small sample of 15x15cm from a whole White Macaubas Quartzite slab.

After waiting for almost two weeks, we got the final confirmation from the client. We were asked to start the processing of the countertops.

Therefore, after the sample and photos of slabs approved, we began to disassemble the design drawings provided by the client. Whilst our production department made a reasonable arrangement according to the client’s requirement. We were asked to deliver before the Chinese New Year, it is a really short time for manufacturing.

But we are used to this kind of high-intensity work. Time pressure is at its highest for this period around Chinese New Year. Almost every client is asking for rush delivery. But we know we can do it to meet the client’s delivery needs while maintaining quality.

Processing, Labeling & Packaging

According to the design requirements of the project, these honed quartzite countertops will be made miter edges. This processing technology is a test of the production technology of a stone factory. The most demanding is the skill of the workmanship which is very important. If it is not done well, there will be an obvious glue gap at the joint. This gap will greatly destroy the appearance of the entire countertop. And even reduce the grade of the whole kitchen or bathroom.

Finally, we completed the production according to the client’s quality requirements. After waterproofing, labeling and packaging, we arranged the loading and shipping.

Came across COVID-19

It is worth mentioning that, the outbreak of coronavirus in China was at the end of December 2019, but it hadn’t spread to Fujian at that time.

The Chinese New Year was at the end of January 2020. However, the pandemic spread was in February, which was already a short time before the national closure. Fortunately, our delivery was completed before the Chinese New Year.

5 points to Pay Attention to When Apply White Macaubas Quartzite

White Macaubas Quartzite is also called White Macaubas Granite, Calacatta Macaubas Quartzite. It has its unique beauty and is suitable for a kitchen countertop or bathroom vanity top. The dark grey straight veins run through the light grey background. The traditional country chic and contemporary art are perfectly combined. But when apply White Macaubas Quartzite, we need to pay attention to the following points:

  1. For a miter edge, if the edge size is designed to be too long, there is a risk of breakage.
  2. Make sure to do waterproofing on the surface and edges of the stone. Otherwise, if a beverage such as coffee or coke accidentally falls on the surface, it will be difficult to remove.
  3. This material is better to do vein-cut, otherwise, it will be in danger of breaking if the countertop size is large.
  4. Natural quartzite must be cut with specific saw blades, neither marble nor granite saw blades.
  5. For large-size quartzite countertops, packaging must be made of the best materials to minimize the risk of breakage in transit.
