Building Green With Stone

NSC member Cold Spring Granite, Cold Spring, Minn., recently added a new building to its campus, and strives to meet LEED Gold certification. More than 40% of the stone was quarried and fabricated within 250 miles of the construction site.

Natural stone, such as this Kasota Valley Limestone, stacks up well against other building materials when it comes to sustainability.

The steel in these crane columns was reused from Cold Spring Granite's former location. The base is made of Rainbow granite.
