Countless generations have used stone to create shelter, symbols and monuments, hewn from the ground, carefully selected, shaped and carved with an evolved understanding of geology, properties and characteristics, each stone representing a distinctive sense of place.
This book was written as a collaborative project between Stone Conservation Services, Consarc Design Group (Dawson Stelfox, Joanne Curran and John Savage) and the Weathering Research Group of Queen’s University Belfast (Bernard Smith and Patricia Warke). It is the product of a longstanding relationship between Consarc Design Group and Queen’s University – a successful industry-research partnership spanning 15 years and includes working together on award-winning conservation projects such as the Albert Memorial Clock, St. George’s Market, St. Matthew’s Church, Parliament Buildings, Stormont.
