Benchmark Foam Recycled EPS Product For LEED Certified Classroom

Benchmark Foam’s expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation products were used during the construction of a classroom in the Bagley Nature area.  Students of the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) have always had access to the area, but now they have a certified LEED-Platinum building in which to conduct research.

Benchmark’s eps360® was used for a 12″ layer of under slab insulation. It was also used for frost-protected foundation applications.
