Kerakoll goes green in Principal London Hotel transformation

October 2018

When the historic Russell Hotel was refurbished before reopening as the Principal London Hotel in spring 2018, the tiling contractor - Chiltern Contracts -  specified Kerakoll products for their “ease of use and eco credentials”.

A total of 338 guest bathrooms, designed by Tara Bernerd & Partners, were tiled: Calacatta Cremo marble was used for all floors and skirtings in both mosaics and larger tiles, while the walls were covered in a mixture of crackle glazed Metro tiles and Calacatta Cremo

Time was a factor on parts of this project, so Kerakoll UK recommended the use of some of the company’s fast track products: Keracem Eco, a screed that supports foot traffic after 8 hours and can be tiled after 24 hours in standard conditions; Biogel Revolution, the rapid-set version of the Biogel range that is ready for foot-traffic and grouting on floors after 3 hours and grouting on walls after 2 hours; and Fugabella Eco Flex which is also rapid setting as well as having a high degree of flexibility.

In areas where the work was not so time-critical Biogel No Limits, the standard set version of the range, was used with Fugabella Eco Porcelana 0-5.  Fugabella Silicone was used as a sealant throughout.
