ACF In The Field
TX160 to the Rescue!
Plecker Construction of Staunton, VA found some soft soils unavoidable early summer during the construction of Cassell Elementary School in Waynesboro, Virginia. With a recommendation from Froehling and Robertston, Tensar's TX160 with 12" of 21Bs and this parking area came to life. Tensar's  triaxial geogrids can be real project savers in unexpected conditions. Cassell Elementary will open in the fall of 17. Contact your local ACF representative for more information.
Thinking Outside of the Tank
ACF completed an R-Tank install with Tierra Construction Services at Adaire Elementary in Philadelphia, PA. There were 1,020 HD Double R-Tanks installed. With the help from ACF Senior Stormwater Engineer, Rob Woodman, ACF thought outside of the typical non-woven geotextiles and deployed a microgrid wrap around the tanks utilizing it as a clog proof alternative. For a full look at the Adaire R-Tank install from start to finish view the photo gallery below.
