Congratulations Daniel Wood
Congratulations to our very own Daniel Wood on being named the National Stone Institute's Co-President for 2017!
Building Stone Institute 2014 Person of the Year
At their annual meeting, the Building Stone Institute (BSI) named Lurvey's Daniel Wood as their 2014 Person of the Year. Daniel serves as Treasurer of the BSI Executive Board and has been a member of BSI, representing Lurvey, since 2008. According to Executive Vice President Jane Bennett, Daniel was selected for this award "...Because of such enthusiasm for our mission; passion for our industry and a humble and nurturing dedication to our cause...". Daniel strives to reach out to local architects and landscape architects to insure their awareness and understanding of stone knowledge, the BSI organization, and the stone industry in general.
In 2014, BSI also thanked Daniel Wood for making the Introduction to ANSI/NSC373 presentation at the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) national convention in Denver.
The new NSC373 ANSI Dimensional Stone Standard is a recently completed standard that the Natural Stone Council (NSC) has worked on for the past five years allowing producers and fabricators to certify against the standard and verify that there are producing natural stone in a sustainable manner based on the metrics within it.
"BSI realizes the investment of both time and resources necessary for any of our members to participate in our member events. Couple that with requests for involvement and representation at other industry geared events, and we know we ask a lot! I am confident that you use this investment to the best of your abilities and are eager to return and share with others. A win-win situation!
Our sincere thanks to you and to your management team at Lurveys for their belief in our initiatives and your role in them."
