Carver Hawkeye Arena Project Profile
Carver Hawkeye Arena - (Iowa City, Iowa)
The Carver Hawkeye Arena was orginally built in 1983 and required updating to meet current needs. Foam-Control EPS below-grade perimeter insulation was used to insulate the exterior walls of the newly remodeled arena and new office extension. The arena is now a multi-purpose building that holds lectures, ceremonies, concerts, and other events in addition to athletic events.
20,000 square feet of Type II Foam-Contol EPS with Perform Guard in 2" x 4' x 8' sheets were installed along the exterior perimeter of the 213,412 square foot building.
EPS was selected as a below-grade insulation because of its many advantages over other insulations, particulary when it comes to water absorportion. The real world performance of EPS moisture resistance and ability to maintain its R-Value convinced architects of its superior quality. The addition of Perform Guard termite resistant treatment made EPS even more appealing for the project.
