Creighton Univ. Geofoam Project Profile
Creighton University – (Omaha, NE)
The Creighton University student center and surrounding plaza were recently redeveloped. During the design of the new plaza, engineers were faced with an existing plaza deck built in the 1970’s which could not support additional weight from traditional fill. A lightweight solution was required. Foam-Control Geofoam was selected to provide the solution. In addition to being lightweight, Foam-Control Geofoam is an engineered fill material with known load bearing properties. Additionally, Geofoam was used to accomplish the multiple depths and radius design that was required for the plaza.
