Mission: To promote and advance the use of natural stone. Vision: To position our members as “the source” of knowledge, information, products and services for the design community and end user. Strategy: To promote and enhance the reach and relevance of our members to the market place.
Since 1919, the Building Stone Institute has worked on behalf of the quarries, fabricators, retailers, importers, exporters, carvers, sculptors, restorers, designers, and installers that comprise our diverse membership. BSI provides programs and services that empower our member companies to offer the highest level of quality products and services. BSI resources are necessary tools that enable our members to educate the architectural and design communities on the benefits and uses of natural stone. BSI is a not-for-profit trade association dedicated to serving its member firms, and providing educational materials and continuing education on the uses and benefits of natural stone. We support efforts to continually increase the quality of service, quality of products, and demand for stone. We hope you find our site informative about the organization, abundant in stone awareness and technical guidance plus a convenient resource to locate experts for all aspects of natural stone. BSI is a proud continuing education provider with the American Institute of Architects, a founding member of the Natural Stone Council and member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
