Sustainability of natural stone as a construction material

Agnieszka Klemm, David Wiggins

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Natural stone is a sustainable building material. Its characteristics are overviewed in this chapter, with an emphasis on stonework durability. The environmental impact associated with its use is examined, and the further-reaching elements of sustainability are also considered. Distinction is drawn between the role of stone in heritage and modern contexts, and efficient build configurations which maximise stone's sustainability credentials are indicated. Future developments in the use of natural stone in construction are also outlined.
