Humans have been building with natural stone since prehistoric times and you would think we would have it figured out by now.  But selecting stone and designing with stone continues to be challenging for construction professionals in practice today.  This presentation highlights some of the lesser known facts about the use of stone in construction, what to look out for when considering stone for a project, and how to achieve a successful stone installation.
