1Specifying Natural StoneThis program is not yet registered with the AIA/CES for continuing education. As such it does not include content that may be deemed or construed to be an approval or endorsement by the AIA of any material of construction or any method or manner of handling, using, distributing or dealing in any material or product.Questions, related to specific material, methods and services will be address at the conclusion of this presentation. 2LEARNING OBJECTIVES-Participants will be able to state geological categories, general descriptions and common uses of natural quarried stone.

-Participants will be able to identify desirable and undesirable characteristics and properties of stone for common applications.

-Participants will be able to determine if certain types of stones are better suited for Structural, veneer, landscape or cut stone applications. 3Why Natural Stone

4-Natural Beauty

-Durability

-Sustainability (Sustainable)

-Desirable

-Stability-5Modern mining is conducted in an environmentally responsible manner.

7 Scientific Classification THREE MAIN TYPES OF STONE

Sedimentary StoneMagmatic (Igneous) Rock Metamorphic rock8 -Sedimentary Stone (SOME COMMON TYPES)

Created by the compression of loose, fragments of existing stone or by the deposition of limestone particles in water; and metamorphic rock. 9Sedimentary Stone (LIMESTONE)

17 Real Stone is GREEN-LEED points-No chemicals used. -Completely natural and earth friendly. -Sustainable-Many environmental, fiscal and ecological advantages to using natural stone in the stead of manmade alternatives18

22 FABRICATION

23 ARCHITECTURAL VENEER STONE

-Identify the composition and general properties of full bed depth vs. thin veneer stone.-Identify varieties and standard offering available in both.-Discuss strengths and limitations of both in common applications.-Discuss styles of stone and where to use. Web wall on rustic, Ashlar on traditional and European, Fieldstone on cabins. Use stone to blend into rest of architecture color, style and texture.24 LANDSCAPE / HARDSCAPE STONE

-Identify the general properties and terminology of landscape stones.-Discuss strengths and limitations of varieties in common applications.-Discuss structural methods and common practices used in landscaping.25CUT / FINISHED SURFACE STONE

-Identify the wide varieties of sliced stone products and surfaces available.-Discuss strengths and limitations of varieties in common applications.-Discuss common applications for each type of cut stone and surface treatments.-Fastening systems for cut stone panels-Discuss procedures for specifying and communication of architectural details.26 APPLICATIONS

There are 4 major Natural Stone Veneers design applications.

-Residential-Commercial-Interiors-Landscaping27 CONCLUSION

-Natural stone (even limestone) is unique from every quarry. Make sure the color, performance and other properties of the stone are compatible with the clients expectations. -A single quarry, group of quarries or real stone supplier cannot supply every stone for every application. 28THANK YOU FOR TAKING THIS COURSE

I WILL BE AVAIALABLE FOR QUESTIONS AND DISCUSSSIONS FOR ONE HOUR AFTER THIS CLASSQuarriers & Manufacturers of Natural Architectural Full & Thin Veneers, Landscape, Custom Cut Stone, Cladding, Tile & Countertop Slabs Since 1978
