ICAA-NW ARTISAN TOUR

RED LEAF STONE is a Pacific Northwest based dimensional stone carver, fabricator and masonry installer.  Our history is founded on the craftsmanship of British Cathedral stonemasonry and our work today continues to uphold core traditional values and principles integral to beautiful geometries, finishes and architectural styles of old-world quality.  However, our firm has also evolved over the years in terms of advanced modern technology, mechanized capacity and geographic reach, and therefore remains highly relevant in meeting todays competitive marketplace demands.  So stated, Red Leaf Stone is pleased to announce its ability to provide full services as an intelligent convergence of both high tech solutions and enduring human craftsmanship specifically tailored to your custom project needs.

Red Leaf Stone full-service solutions are:  forensic as-built site measuring, virtual renderings, shop drawings, detailed stone carving and high capacity fabrication - to structural engineering, ASTM stone anchor design and anchor fitting fabrication - to on-site delivery and experienced journeymen stone installation. 

TOUR DESCRIPTION:  The tour will focus on how an architect's design is processed into digital as-built measurements relative to a building sub-structure and converging CAD systems, followed by a walk-through of primary and secondary cutting and profiling phases, viewing of large scale equipment, tooling, hand-finishing and packaging.  Attendees will see the method of enormous raw quarry blocks cut into slabs by wire saw, then carved into architecturally pleasing elements and details, followed by stainless steel anchor fabrication.  Foremen will be available on site for discussions about how details are maintained until the final product is packaged, loaded onto trucks and delivered.
