Sandstone, a natural building material, is but one of the family of “Dimension Stones” used around the world. We discuss assessing the performance criteria for durability, available types, colours and applied textures of sandstones. We also look at its traditional and contemporary use around Australia and discuss specific issues relating to its use as a building material.

Fire Safety When Using Timber Cladding
Timber cladding is an increasingly popular choice for Australian commercial and domestic buildings due to its striking natural aesthetic, durability and low environmental impact. However the strong fire-resistant qualities of timber are often unknown or poorly understood.
This presentation clarifies combustible and non-combustible materials, the science of how timber reacts in a fire, and the building codes in relation to timber cladding and compliance.
