    Spring 2019 Technical Presentation -Don't take your supplier for granite: The cost and availability of materials for stream restoration projects

    Do you know where the materials you specify come from? Why are your bids coming up so high? Have you specified materials that are readily available? 

    With the significant forecast for stream restoration construction over the next few years – it’s important to understand the limitations and potential for various products regularly specified on design plans.  We saw the fate of the sandstone boulder and the 18” cobble.  Is imbricated next? Our future may become supply limited.  How can designers improve what they are specifying?  Can we as a community, reduce our carbon footprint and miles traveled for certain products to get to our sites? This presentation will give designers a better understanding of what materials are readily available and how costs increase when difficult materials are specified. The purpose of this event it to encourage designers to work with producers to find innovative and cost-saving alternatives.
