Stone Federation makes the Case for Stone in webinar series

The Case for Stone webinar

Stone Federation is holding a series of webinars called 'The Case for Stone'. The first is on 17 February at 3.30pm.

Stone Federation Great Britain is making 'The Case for Stone' in the first of a series of webinars from 3.30pm on 17 February. 

The Case for Stone events will be part of the Federation’s efforts to raise awareness of natural stone and its credentials for sustainability.

This ongoing online conversation will explore how natural stone can help deliver a more sustainably built environment.

This first conversation will be hosted by Ulrike Knox, founder of Knox McConnell Architects, one of the judges of Stone Federation’s Natural Stone Awards.

Speakers are Amin Taha, of Groupwork, and Steve Webb, of Webb Yates Engineers, who worked together on 15 Clerkenwell Close, where they demonstrated that using natural stone can reduce a building’s whole life carbon impact. The project was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize last year.

They will be joined by Zac Tudor of Arup, who, in a previous role as principal landscape architect for Sheffield City Council, delivered a number of natural stone projects in the city. He is a key proponent of the use of stone for sustainable city landscapes.
