Building on the library research it has already commissioned, the Marble Institute of America (MIA) has announced the completion of two new granite and radon/radiation studies focusing on the occupational safety of quarry and fabrication workers.
In collaboration with Vitoria Stone Fair/Marmomacc Latin America, Veronafiere's Marmomacc Stone Academy will offer the first natural stone design continuing education course for architects in Brazil officially recognized by the American Institute of Architects (AIA).
In the December 2016 issue, we look at some highlights of the Marmo+Mac 2016, and the new renovations of the Freemasons' Hall in London, England. We also present some new products, technology updates, machine of the month, and stone of the month.
For this issue, we are excited to share with you four features that focus on using compact and ultrathin slabs in both residential and commercial projects. As these products continue to gain popularity, we wanted to share different ideas of applications, including an upscale dining environment in the interior of a Saks Fifth Avenue.
