Irvine Sellar, the joint owner and developer of the iconic Shard building in the vibrant London Bridge quarter of London, describes this 'vertical city' as a modern beacon of progressive architecture.

An ambitious vision saw a striking skyline monument incorporating retail, offices, hotel, apartments, restaurants and a public viewing gallery. His idea was to build a diverse vibrant community and provide multiple areas within which the public could experience the building and its magnificent views. And all of this astride one of London’s major transport hubs. Today that vision is a reality and The Shard is one of the most famous landmarks in the world.

The thousands of daily visitors cross a paved area that was installed using tuffset G specialist mortar.
