23 Feb 2022

In a presentation entitled ‘Natural and Engineered Stone facades: sustainability, buildability and aesthetics’, David Wilson, architectural consultant at Shackerley, will discuss the benefits of using engineered or natural stone materials as a ventilated façade in improving sustainability across every phase of a building’s lifecycle; from specification to operation. The presentation will consider the embedded carbon implications of stone cladding as compared to hand set stone construction, along with reduction it provides in the amount of construction materials required and waste generated, the longevity of the building envelope and maintenance requirements. It will also highlight how these sustainability benefits can be delivered while answering the aesthetic, planning and buildability goals of the project.
