Redefining stone: new load bearing solutions
30 Apr 2019
Specialists in the structural design of stone, Webb Yates Engineers have collaborated closely with The Stonemasonry Company and other stonemasons over the last decade and evolved from the work-a-day justification of simple stone cantilever staircases to the design of audacious post tensioned stone structures and whole load bearing stone buildings. Steve shares his vision of stone, not just as a high end luxury floor product, but as a proletarian building material and low carbon alternative to concrete and takes you through a range of case studies including Clerkenwell Close, the Victoria & Albert Museum and a number of private projects.
I've seen how techniques and machinery have advanced in the stone trade, making life easier, more efficient and saving money on a project
The Natural Stone Show has been really exciting for us, we’ve met a lot of great people and had a lot of traffic on the stand, it has been a great setting for our official launch.
You can find everything!
The real highlight of the show has been seeing so many people come to see the new colours that we've introduced...we've pulled in incredible crowds with the new range.
