CEU: DESIGNING WITH NATURAL STONE


 Where  

This is a live webinar. Attend from anywhere on any computer (and most mobile devices) with internet access.

Despite the natural durability found in stone, there are a number of applications -- both exterior and interior -- where issues can arise due to improper use, specification, installation, care, and/or maintenance. This seminar provides the knowledge base architects and designers need to successfully work with natural stone in both residential and commercial projects. Case studies provide a hands-on, problem-solving approach to designing with natural stone. We review pertinent accessibility issues and examine the sustainability of natural stone as it as relates to LEED and the new International Green Building Code. Finally, we look at recent changes in the stone industry and how they impact design options.

 Learning Objectives   

Upon completion, you will be able to:

  • Define the environmental impacts and benefits of designing with natural stone.
  • Describe how stone is processed and packaged.
  • Handle issues related to the installation, care, and maintenance of natural stone (protection, soundproofing, crack isolation, and expansion joints).
  • Specify the proper natural stone for a given application.
