No special equipment is required when building with EPS geofoam. Blocks can often be carried and set in place by laborers or easily handled with mechanized equipment. This is an important consideration when the construction site is congested or does not have the clearances required for traditional placement or compaction equipment. EPS geofoam can be field cut using a hot-wire cutter, hand saw or chain saw. The EPS geofoam can be trimmed on site to accommodate the shapes of existing underground utilities and services.
