Innovation for sustainable design –
back to basics, post-tensioned stone
and lightweight façades

Tuesday 23 February

Using structural stone to build with can make good sense, both environmentally and economically. Post- and pre-tensioned stone has enabled designers to achieve elegant solutions and provide a low carbon alternative to concrete. And innovative designs of light-weight frames supporting thin stone cladding mean the main frame of a building can be lighter, saving materials and cutting costs throughout the build.
