Indiana Limestone Company, a leading provider of premier construction limestone, is offering new professional programs on the use of limestone in landscape architecture for audiences of architects and professionals in related disciplines.

These “Lunch & Learn” programs, scheduled in the New York metropolitan area and across the country, offer continuing education credits toward accreditation requirements for members of the American Society of Landscape Architects.

The programs address many aspects of Indiana limestone in the landscaping environment.

Subjects include the inherent strength, beauty and durability of the limestone; details of quarrying the stone; comparisons against cast stone and other manufactured alternatives; and limestone’s inherent value in landscaping design and construction.

“Accredited Lunch & Learn programs are important tools in helping landscape architects understand the best ways to use natural limestone in their projects,” said Stephen DiRaffaele, Indiana Limestone Company’s architectural sales representative in the New York metropolitan area.

“Not every architect is expert in every material specialty,” said DiRaffaele, who conducts many of the Lunch & Learn sessions. “Professionals benefit from expanding and reinforcing their skills – and from continuing-education learning units for maintaining their licenses. The programs are also invaluable in building relationships between the architects and the provider.”

In addition to conducting continuing-education sessions, ILCO offers landscape architects advanced project assistance in the critical early stages of project design.

ILCO’s in-house experts help professionals implement best design practices in concert with fabricators, engineers, masons, quarries and even freight companies. This support helps restrain costs while maintaining landscape aesthetics and construction quality.

For more information on the company’s ASLA-certified educational programs, please contact Stephen DiRaffaele at 812-583-9368 or call Indiana Limestone Company direct at 812-275-3341.
