This event has become a signature event of the Indiana Limestone Industry and has the full support of the Indiana Limestone Institute, as well as cooperation with the Indiana Limestone Company. The Masonry Contractors Workshop is a two day event designed specifically for masonry contractors that 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 which has been known for over 100 years as “America’s Building Stone”.
Also being announced today is the addition of training targeted at architects that want to learn more about Indiana Limestone. 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 Company. The length of this course is 1 Hour (1.0 Credits) and will be held on October 5th, 2011 at 3:00 PM EST at the Indiana Limestone Company's main office.
Because of the success of the 2010 event, this year's event has been drastically expanded.
This year’s event will 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 masonry contractor attendees.
• A dramatic tour of a gigantic Indiana Limestone quarry, courtesy of the Indiana Limestone Company.
• 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 a 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.
