    Default stone

    Hi,

    could you please tell me what "stone" means in the following sentence? It is a contract for work:

    The specialized consultants will become active in particular in the following areas: fire engineering, traffic impact, parking, external wall, stone, special lighting, geotechnical survey etc.

    Does it refer to flooring?

    Thank you very much.

    Hanka

    It could be flooring or it could be cladding for a wall. And one doesn't normally refer to outdoor stonework as "flooring", though that use of "stone" might refer to paving as well. Any kind of stonework, really.
