What are the basic causes of scope creep in granite and stone fabrication and what steps can fabrication professionals take to resist this detrimental phenomenon?
Keeping Fabrication Projects On Track
No matter what profession you have selected, maintaining a proper view of the project (and yourself) is key. Getting either of these out of focus, can lead to a chain reaction that causes your projects to grow out of control. The creeping of features and/or the project’s scope can take over your schedule and potentially your life if not managed properly.

Recycled Water Has Many Uses
Water is a precious resource that all life depends on. In fact, without this marvelous substance life could not continue. Additionally, having pure water to drink and to use for food is a very important aspect of giving our attention to water preservation. Recycling water plays a key role in making the best use of this life-supporting substance. Yet, many tasks that require water, do not require pure water. Continue reading “Recycled Water Use”
Industrial Filtration Units
Industrial shops like stone fabrication shops benefit from a wide variety of industrial equipment. Air tools and power tools like bridge saws, polishers, and vehicles like fork lifts and booms are only part of the story though. There are other types of machines that could be classified as industrial filtration units as well. In this post, we will consider some specific types of filtration units that industrial shops like stone fabrication plants use while producing countertops, work surfaces, and even floor tiles and wall panels.

Enhanced Stone Fabrication Safety Through Dust Collection
When it comes to stone fabrication, safety is a must. Fabricators implement effective precautions to reduce the risk of injury from a number of basic safety hazards. However, with additional risks associated with Respirable Crystalline Silica there are other safety practices that can be implemented to enhance stone fabrication safety. Dust collection is one such safety enhancement.

Stone Fabrication and Water Reuse
As you are aware, water is a critical part of your stone fabrication operation. Your equipment, tools and shop depend on water to operate efficiently. Thus, making water just as much of a tool as any saw, polisher, or slab cart. Additionally, you perform maintenance on your machinery on a regular basis. Just like you maintain your fabrication equipment, water can be “maintained” in a sense; through stone fabrication water recycling.
