ASTM International to Host April Symposium on Dimension Stone

CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa.—The ASTM International dimension stone committee (C18) is sponsoring the Symposium on Dimension Stone Use in the Built Environment, April 1-2, 2020, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place (Massachusetts, USA). The symposium will take place in conjunction with the April standards development meetings of the committee.

Dimension stone cladding and paving systems continue to evolve and present challenges to design professionals, owners, and installation, repair, and restoration contractors. This symposium is intended to bring together the diverse interests of professionals in the dimension stone community involved with its design, construction, evaluation, and use, for a formal exchange of information on the behavior of dimension stone in the built environment.

Topics will include, but are not limited to:

  • Physical and/or mechanical properties,
  • Design,
  • Evaluation and investigation,
  • Durability,
  • Maintenance,
  • Restoration, and more.

Online registration is now open and closes on March 25, 2020. For more information, visit https://www.astm.org/C18SymposiumRegApril2020.

Additional technical information is available from symposium co-chair Steven Naggatz (snaggatz@wje.com) or Charles Muehlbauer (charles@naturalstoneinstitute.org).
