The area will be covered with turf and trees to provide a natural park land for all visitors to the precinct. ClimaFoam XPS Board has high compressive strength, which makes it suitable for applications that will be subjected to high load bearings.

The ClimaFoam XPS Boards used were 600mm wide x 2200mm long, a convenient size to make installation quick. The boards also had a shiplap edge, which helped the installers secure the boards with an intimate contact at the joins, to ensure the high thermal performance of the insulation isn't compromised by gaps.

ClimaFoam XPS Board was laid over waterproong membranes and Geotextile fabrics with a drainage cell system installed on top. Adding further to the moisture management of the system, ClimaFoam XPS Board has a closed-cell structure which makes it highly water resistant.
ClimaFoam XPS Board will provide high thermal insulation and with high compressive strength, the boards will be able to sustain the static and dynamic loads.
