    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.

    Re: stone

    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.
