Stone Fabrication for Restoration and New Construction
Provider: Mason Contractors Association of America
Discipline: Masonry Products
The process of selecting and fabricating natural stone for restoration is complex. The speaker will first discuss the selection and matching process for limestone and sandstone supply, followed by site measuring techniques, templating and drawing requirements. We will take a virtual tour of a fabrication plant to see the high-tech machinery used to cut, turn and profile stone. We will also see the traditional hand-cut methods used by skilled cutters, carvers and sculptors to create one-of-a kind pieces. You will learn some of the terminology associated with this ancient craft and learn about stone as a sustainable building material.
