RMAX GeoFoam lays below Sydney's biggest project

RMAX Geofoam Project - Barangaroo

Barangaroo is one of the most ambitious urban renewal projects in the world today, embodying world-class design excellence and sustainability.

It is one of the world’s foremost waterfront renewal projects and showcases Sydney as Australia’s gateway to the world.

The 22 hectare,$6 billion Barangaroo precinct will help redefine the western edge of Sydney Harbour with such a large project it is inevitable that a number of RMAX construction products are used within the landscaping and buildings in this landmark development.

RMAX GeoFoam was used extensively by Lend Lease’s civil contractor, over 2000 cubic meters of high density expanded polystyrene installed over six months of construction.

Used extensively as an inert non biodegradable fill under the new public park area, we worked closely with the engineering design team to ensure this bespoke run of RMAX GeoFoam met all of the load requirements, saved time and reduced cost on the project.

The cellular structure of RMAX GeoFoam® helps to absorb and dissipate crush loads and it’s cellular structure results in Isotropic physical properties -the physical properties are the same in all directions RMAX GeoFoam® is a high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS) fill material specifically designed for civil engineering and commercial building construction. Its remarkable strength-to-weight ratio makes it the ideal choice for absorbing heavy structural and mechanical loads and reducing underlying soil stresses which in turn helps to stabilise roads, steep embankments, bridge abutments and sensitive below ground pipe work. It is also a highly versatile material that can be easily used as a quick and easy cost-saving method for concrete form-work or weight reduction on foundations. Its uses in civil construction are endless.

7 Good Reasons to use RMAX GeoFoam®

  1. Superb compressive strength
  2. Reduced construction times -cost effective
  3. Durable and non-biodegradable
  4. Inhibits water absorption
  5. Safe, non-toxic, environmentally friendly
  6. Versatility, concrete formwork and more
  7. Improves design flexibility
