Innovation & Change

Innovation and Change
Laticrete is known across the United States and around the world for innovation and changing the way tile and stone are installed. 
We focus on engineering materials and methods for the permanent, problem-free installation of tile and stone. We focus on the fact that construction techniques and methods are evolving and changing. The way we "build buildings" today is not the same as a generation ago. We build taller, thinner, lighter and faster. We build with a new emphasis on energy efficiency and "Green."
Laticrete is your "Technical Partner" to address these critical issues. Our technologies, materials, methods and technical support help ensure that YOUR tile and stone installations on your construction projects are built with the technologies of today rather than yesterday.

The Al Hamra Tower is a skyscraper in Kuwait City, Kuwait. Designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the tower is the tallest building in Kuwait at 412.6 m - 1,354 ft.
It is the tallest sculpted tower in the world. 
The stone clad facade acts a protective skin from the desert sun where temperatures top 55 degrees Celcius - 130 degrees F. The stone cladding is installed with Laticrete !
