The Art of Specifying Natural Stone 

This session is designed to give architects and designers an overview of how to specify natural stone.  There are many factors to consider to ensure you are choosing the proper material for your project.  What do you need to know about its species, color variations and finish possibilities? Is the quarry able to produce the sizes and quantities you need? And finally, what factors impact the price of the stone you specify? Get the resources you need to help ensure the stone you choose meets the standards and design intent set for your application.

Myth-busting Practical Applications of Natural Stone 

With so many building materials on the market today, why is natural stone the best material for your application?  Join us as a group of design professionals discuss why they chose natural stone as their premier building material.  Learn tips on how to choose and specify the correct natural stone for your application.  Come away with a plan to build natural stone into your design repertoire.
