Award winning natural stone projects will be presented in order to showcase its versatility, sustainability, and resilience. We will review how common and custom natural stone products are used in innovative ways. Learn what metrics the industry uses to define sustainability and see how they compare with artificial building materials.
Natural stone is the world's oldest building material; however innovative designs are only limited by one's imagination. Find out how the use of natural stone can bring your vision to reality for your clients.
Three modules will be presented, focusing on inspirational project photos, and the "How" of what is featured.
At the end of this session you will:
- Review the geology of stone, how it is processed and its standard sizes.
- Define common stone applications within commercial and residential projects – review what standards and drawings are relevant, how it is specified and bid, and how to source natural stone.
- Realize how stone differs from artificial building materials in regard to sustainability.
