Last week we welcomed delegates from across the UK to the member-exclusive Use of Stone in Building Course at London Thistle Holborn Hotel.
The course content started by looking at the geology of stone and stone testing, moving on to the detailing of stone and then looked at the use of stone in both interiors and external paving. The final two seminars looked at the ethical procurement and sustainability of stone and the historic relationship between architecture and masonry.
It was encouraging to see a mix of both experienced industry professionals alongside those new to the industry, all benefitting from the wealth of knowledge the speakers had to offer.
The speakers all brought a considerable wealth of industry experience and knowledge and the Federation would like to thank each of them for their part in making the day such a success. The speakers were David Ellis (Sandberg), Dr Tim Yates (BRE), Graham Lee (Graham Lee Consultancy), Chris Kelsey (The Marble & Granite Centre), David Burton (Steintec), David Richardson (Diagenesis Consulting) and Mark Walden (Szerelmey).
Feedback from delegates:
“Very insightful, strongly recommend.”
“Excellent and very informative”
