Sunday, November 13, 2022

Stone is overlooked as a sustainable construction material. It is durable, recyclable, nontoxic, easily maintained, and has lower embodied energy. Still, over 50% of dimension stone is imported, and current quarrying practices produce substantial waste. This session examines stone’s sustainability scorecard, design opportunities, and the industry’s environmental practices.
