Stone Panels: Combine Products for Design Options, Simpler Construction, Optimum Cost: Case Study


Advanced Architectural Stone (AAS) has successfully combined different product materials to optimize cost while maintaining a seamless look and feel. This also provides more flexibility in the design and construction process. The thin GFRC panels in particular, create opportunities to simplify construction with its much lighter weight, yet very competitive strength to weight ratio.
