EPS29 Geofoam was used to backfill against the basement wall of this elementary school in Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53218. The architect was concerned that if earth or stone was used as backfill, too much lateral pressure could be applied to the existing wall. The EPS29 Geofoam was the perfect material for the application. Weighing just 1.8 pounds per cubic foot with a compression strength of 10.6 pounds per square inch at 1% deformation, the EPS29 is strong enough to meet the load requirements of the project. Because it is so lightweight and provided in block form, it installed very quickly without requiring any heavy equipment for maneuvering or placement.
