Natural stone masonry in modern Scottish construction: guidance

This guidance was commissioned by the Building Standards Division (formerly the Scottish Building Standards Agency), part of the Directorate for the Built Environment of the Scottish Government, to inform those practitioners who lack familiarity with the use of natural stone as a building material. It is specifically designed to address issues surrounding the use of natural stone in new buildings and structures and to provide the target audience with the knowledge and confidence to integrate effectively natural stone into the design and construction of such buildings.
