Geofoam Case Studies
While traditional fills have, and likely will continue to have their place across civil and structural applications, EPS geofoam offers building professionals an efficient, cost effective fill alternative. The rigid foam material enables project designers and building professionals to design by function, that is, to focus on addressing key geosynthetic challenges within a particular project. EPS geofoam exhibits several special characteristics—a lightweight composition, compressive strength and easy customization—that truly sets it apart from traditional fill options. In application, the engineered fill material has been used to rebuild a major highway in Colorado, build up a quarter-mile bridge across Florida waters, and support a multi-family pool vicinity atop of sub-grade parking garage.
Click on any of the Geofoam case studies to learn how this high-performance material, which takes the “less is more approach” to address void fill needs, can support a variety of unique geotechnical applications.
