Sustainable housing finalist uses Foamex Styroboard EPS to achieve 8+ stars

In their recent entry to the 2014 Victorian Master Builders Excellence in Construction, Housing, and Regional Building Awards, Positive Footprints used Foamex's Styroboard™ Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) from Foamex in their finalist entry.

Positive Footprints design and build environmentally sustainable homes that are as low impact as possible, driving forward with their vision to make sustainable housing mainstream in the building industry.

Styroboard Expanded Polystyrene is an ideal choice for home builders, specifiers, architects, and engineers looking to build green. Using a new gas developed in partnership with Honeywell Australia, Styroboard EPS is environmentally-friendly, refrigerant-free, and produces no ozone depleting substances.

Strong and durable, Styroboard Expanded Polystyrene can be used in a wide range of residential, commercial, and industrial constructions. By building with Styroboard EPS, home and building owners can limit external temperature influences, reduce internal temperature fluctuations, and in turn reduce the need for mass air-conditioning and electricity consumption. This superior thermal performance means less energy is consumed, leading to fewer greenhouse emissions.
