The construction of US Bank Stadium required the use of a lightweight fill material in multiple areas throughout the site. STYRO-FLEX EPS Geofoam was used exclusively to fulfill the many requirements of this complex project.
City Planners wanted to create a beautiful and welcoming area for the large crowds arriving for Twins games and events at Target Field. The stunning design was turned into a reality with the help of expertly crafted STYRO-FLEX EPS Geofoam.
Riverbend Commons, at the University of Minnesota, reclaimed its view of the Mississippi River by replacing an above-ground parking ramp with an underground structure. Concerned over the stress that landscape soils would impose on the structure, engineers significantly reduced structural loads by specifying geofoam to create their landscape.
Constructed over peat deposits 22'-28' deep, County Highway 12 experienced severe settlement even after previous attempts to correct the problem were made. With minimal excavation, a geofoam road embankment was constructed to reduce the overburden on the underlying poor soils.
For over 20 years, County Highway A in Bayfield had a history of slope failures, and conventional remedies had failed to correct the problem. Geofoam enabled engineers to reduce the landslide driving force without lowering the grade at the head of the slide.
