This book is intended as a starting point for those considering lime as a building material, and as a general reference to the broad range of uses for lime in construction. It shows how to make the best use of different types of lime, whether extracted locally or transported from further afield. The book provides information that will assist manufacturers, policy-makers, investors, suppliers, and the builders and owners or users of the buildings themselves to understand the value of lime.
