MKW Surfaces has been commissioned with supplying marble tops for 55 bathrooms in a £2.4 million refurbishment for the City University of London in a larger scheme of £130 million investment between 2013-2016.
City University of London – Main Building
The Pure City accommodation Centre is a brand new facility unveiled in September 2014 in which students will have benefits such as 4K TV and gaming.
Pure City is approximately 7 minutes’ walk from City University London’s main site at Northampton Square, and 11 minutes’ walk from Cass Business School.

The building has different types of room to cater for all needs ranging from Studios, Rooms for couples, 2 bedroom flats, premium and superior flats and Penthouses.
Floor Plan of 2 of the different layouts for the students’ accomodation
The material specified was Bering, a spanish technical marble in a polished finish and thickness of 20mm
MKW Surfaces supplied 55 of these apartments with marble pieces such as cistern tops and shelves to all bathrooms.
The main characteristic of technical marble is uniformity in veining and pattern across the entire project which would have proved difficult to achieve with a natural stone such as marble or granite.
The building has a modern look and to match we have supplied each of the pieces with an eased profile edge on top and bottom edges (below image).
In addition to beautiful marble, each property has 24hs CCTV in operation, a security team in-house and laundry facilities .
Pure City is situated in the local area of Clerkenwell – an ideal location for students studying both at the main campus in Northampton Square and at Cass Business School as it is within easy reach distance of all the University’s facilities.
The Barbican Centre, one of London’s liveliest cultural venues, is nearby as well as a plethora of restaurants, bars and pubs of Farringdon and Shoreditch.
The area is well served by buses as well as the Underground. Living in London’s Zone 1 means you are within easy traveling distance from all other parts of London.
MKW Surfaces specialists in supplying marble and granite to block of apartments to property developers, architects and designers.
