Guided by strong architect interest, Indiana Limestone Company is offering a new series of Lunch & Learn continuing education sessions that address the firm’s new Thin Limestone Panel System. Each attendee at the sessions, which are accredited by the American Institute of Architects, earns a CEU credit.
Specifics on this Lunch-and-Learn course, along with contact information for arranging to have it carried out at architects’ home offices, are available at: http://info.indianalimestonecompany.com/request-a-lunch-and-learn-today.
Indiana Limestone Company is the first to bring CEUs into the online realm in this category. The company’s efforts in online continuing-education study have also been advanced through its well-received course entitled “Lightweight Limestone Composite Panels: Durable, Versatile, & Beautiful.” The course is available at the AEC Daily website: https://www.aecdaily.com/course.php?node_id=1927526&tabidx=viewcoursedetails&company=Indiana+Limestone+Company&subtabidx=osp.
The Thin Limestone Panel System makes premier Indiana Limestone available for use in an array of new architecture and construction applications, particularly in mid-rise and high-rise markets.
A veneer of the distinctive natural stone is bonded to an advanced, high-strength honeycomb backing, producing panels 80 percent lighter than solid stone slabs of the same width and length. This difference can enable great savings in structural requirements, labor, shipping, and construction-site equipment. The panels have 60 times the impact resistance of solid slabs they’re produced from. They deliver enhanced flexural strength and weather extreme freeze-thaw cycles well.
Modular construction is another advantage. Available in standard-sized units, the panels don't require a complex layout, and install easily, providing an economical means for making the Indiana Limestone look a reality.
Indiana Limestone Company’s presentation of the system at this year’s AIA convention produced great interest and reaction among architects, builders, and representatives in the capabilities of lightweight limestone panels.
