With today’s construction costs, especially in multi-leveled developments, planners and contractors alike are looking for low-cost options for projects. Fortunately, innovations continue to develop and today options like Expanded Polystyrene Geofoam are used in creative projects and developments.
Recently, using Drew Foam's EPS products, two pool and deck combinations were constructed on the top level of two luxury apartment complexes in Louisiana. In both Highland Road and Park Place apartments, different grades of Expanded Polystyrene foams were used as structural fill in place of concrete. The light weight of EPS combined with its extreme durability made it not only a perfect choice but a low-cost solution as well.
The benefits of Geofoam don’t stop there, a combination of its unique traits give it the ability to maximize onsite installation efficiency which is doubly important for rooftop construction such as pools and spas.
