Promoting Lime and its Use in Historic Preservation and New Sustainable Construction
Lunch & Learn
This program provides an overview of the origin and uses of lime mortar in traditional building and its place in new sustainable construction. The presentation will highlight the advantages of Natural Hydraulic Lime (NHL) and it will lead participants to consider appropriate uses of lime and inappropriate uses of modern Portland cement binders in masonry work for both masonry restoration and new construction. This program targets those committed to continuing effective stewardship of the natural and built environments.
