Indiana Cut Stone's 2011 Masonry Contractors Event Announced

Words: Dan Kamys Indiana Cut Stone's 2011 Masonry Contractors Event Announced


Indiana Cut Stone has opened both attendee and exhibitor registration for the 2011 Masonry Contractors Workshop, to be held on Oct. 5 and 6, 2011, on the grounds of Indiana Cut Stone.

This event has the full support of the Indiana Limestone Institute, as well as cooperation with the Indiana Limestone Co. The Masonry Contractors Workshop is a two-day event, designed specifically for masonry contractors who want to learn more about Indiana Limestone and participate in approved courses available for Mason Contractors Association of America (MCAA) certification credits. This training will enable mason contractors to learn more about working with Indiana Limestone.

Training for architects who want to learn more about Indiana Limestone also will be available. The Indiana Limestone Overview, "Created by Nature, Crafted by Man," is eligible for American Institute of Architects (AIA) continuing education learning units. This training will be hosted by the Indiana Limestone Co. The length of this course is 1 Hour (1 Credit) and will be held on Oct. 5, 2011, at 3 p.m. EST at the Indiana Limestone Co.'s main office.

Because of the success of the 2010 event, this year's event has been drastically expanded to include:

• Up to 10 hours of Indiana Limestone approved training courses available for MCAA certification credits
• A masonry industry trade show where exhibitors from manufacturers, suppliers and service providers can meet their core customers
• An outdoor theater where industry professionals will demonstrate their company’s new products and equipment to mason contractor attendees
• A dramatic tour of an Indiana Limestone quarry, courtesy of the Indiana Limestone Co.
• A detailed look at Indiana Cut Stones’ limestone fabrication facility.
• LEED and Indiana Limestone training for Architects and other design professionals.

The schedule for both days is identical. The event format is a “learning festival,” in that attendees will wander the grounds and attend the MCAA-approved courses, visit the trade show, see a product presentation in the theater or take part in a quarry or fabrication facility tour as they see fit. The various events will begin at scheduled times throughout the day, but attendees have complete control over what they do and what they see.

The Masonry Contractors Workshop will provide lunch on each day of event as well as buses to the Limestone Quarry Tour and the nearby event parking.

Masonry Safety Inspections

The look of confusion and utter loss on people’s faces when I tell them that I’m a safety inspector for a masonry company is often hilarious.
