Luck Stone Corp., a supplier of architectural stone based in Richmond, VA, is offering architects CES learning units in the selection and application of natural stone. Presented by John Grubb, product specialist; Bill Eubank, architectural sales representative; and Dan Ouellette, division sales manager, the one-hour session has four modules that cover a range of topics for residential and commercial projects. Architects will learn how to identify different types of stone for vertical and horizontal applications, stone veneering applications, marble and granite work, landscaping applications and flagstone applications.

The Luck Stone team of architectural stone educators will travel to architects' offices throughout Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland to deliver the sessions, which range in size from 1 to 30 architects, and can be given during the lunch hour.

"An informal survey of our customers showed that architects come out of school with some knowledge of stone, but not the in-depth knowledge they need for proper selection and application," said Mark Fernandes, vice president of Luck Stone Architectural Stone Division. "Working with stone can be very complex, so we created a team of stone experts dedicated solely to architects." For more information, visit the company's Web site at
