EPS has long been the material of choice for precast concrete companies producing a broad range of different concrete products. Now contractors are seeing the value of using EPS block-outs onsite for everything from bolt pockets to much larger shapes. For this project in Indianapolis, Indiana the contractor needed 4 round blocks outs 18” thick. One was 52” in diameter, 2 were 122” in diameter and the last one was 133” diameter. The block-outs were shipped with holes precut so the contractor could sandwich the cylinders between their forms and connect the two together. After the concrete sets, the straight forms are removed and the EPS shape is busted out.
