LUNDHS Ocean is one of the more recent additions to the Lundhs portfolio of materials. The quarry was originally opened more than 30 years ago. The annual production during the last 10 years has been between 500-2,500 m3 per year. During 2013 and 2014 Lundhs invested heavily in breaking new ground, opening more areas in the quarry and got renewed the quarry license for a long term operation.
Now the quarry is rigged for producing quantities up to 10,000 m3 per year. Based upon cost efficiency, homogeneity of the material and low waste percentage due to multiple cutting direction of the blocks, it is probably the most suitable project material of the various Lundhs materials. The quarry delivers HQ and Classic coloured material in both 1st and 2nd choice quality from cutter blocks to gangsaw blocks.
MIA Unveils New CEU Course: "The Art of Specifying Natural Stone”
The Marble Institute of America (MIA) announced that a new course has been added to the CEU program. “The Art of Specifying Natural Stone” was written by MIA Education Committee Chair, Rob Bacon (Daltile), and qualifies for CEU credit through AIA, IDCEC, LACES, and NKBA.
This one hour session is designed to give architects and designers an overview of how to specify natural stone. Many factors must be considered to ensure that the proper stone is selected for a project. Architects and designers must know about the species, color variations, and finish possibilities of the stone, as well as whether or not a quarry is capable of producing the sizes and quantities needed. “The Art of Specifying Natural Stone” also addresses factors that affect the price of stone and gives participants the resources necessary to help ensure the stone specified meets the standards and design intents set for the application.
