When it comes to evaluating the challenges of dirt in development, there is no question that Geofoam is a superior option. Unlike dirt fill, Geofoam is stable, lightweight and doesn’t change shape with the exposure of water or freeze-thaw elements. In most cases, Geofoam solves instability problems inherent with dirt such as buckling, shifting and distorting.
Geofoam also reduces resources needed, as the amount of Geofoam required to match 12 dump trucks of fill dirt is just one flat bed truck. Geofoam blocks are stable and predictable, where dirt will shift and move when compacted.
Notable projects throughout the country have looked to Geofoam to solve their challenges (many of which often relate to strength and moisture). Check these high profile projects out yourself to see why your projects should also be looking to Geofoam.
