EPS geofoam is inherently multi-functional, which makes it effective to use in a wide variety of applications. It offers special advantages for construction on soft ground, slope stabilization and retaining walls. EPS geofoam has been used in road and airfield pavements and railway tracksystems, beneath refrigerated storage buildings, sports arenas and storage tanks to prevent ground freezing and heaving and in below-ground building segments to reduce seasonal heating and cooling requirements.
Geospec reduces the load on underlying soils which would minimize the amount of settlement and stabilizing needed for the schools built up foundation. Read on to learn how Plasti-Fab geofoam was used to stabilize the soils beneath this school.
This month at Plasti-Fab we will be featuring Geofoam, a product that has a wide array of applications, and not just below grade. In today’s blog we will show you how our GeoSpec® product was used on a roof to create a whole new green space in the City of Calgary.
