Alcoa Geoweb(R) new product used for de-icing pad at Cleveland Hopkins Airport

Alcoa : 07 May, 2006  (New Product)
Alcoa announced that its Presto Products' Geoweb(R) load support system will be used at Cleveland's Hopkins International Airport. Presto Products is providing 13 truck loads, or 1.3 million square feet, of the Geoweb product that will serve as a construction support platform over marginal subgrades and a highly-permeable structural drainage layer for the 30-acre de-icing site, currently underway at the airport. Presto Products' Ohio distributor, Meredith Brothers, Columbus, was awarded the supply contract from Independence Excavating, the Cleveland-based construction company, who is building the airport site. Independence Excavating has participated in many of the region's most demanding and innovative projects, including NASA Glenn's cryogenic propellant research center, Gund Arena and the Cleveland Browns Stadium. The specifications were developed by R. W. Armstrong, the airport design engineering consultants.

'This is the first use of our Geoweb product for a de-icing application since new government standards concerning de-icing runoff were established. The Geoweb system develops a structurally-stable aggregate drainage system for groundwater, and supports the impervious membranes that prevent the possibility of groundwater contamination. Using the Geoweb system eliminates the need for excessive excavation while increasing structural capacity, which saves construction costs,' said Daniel Senf, PE, CPESC, Director Business Development for Presto Products Geosystems. 'In addition, Geoweb stabilizes aggregate so it can handle the heavy loads of construction and commercial aircraft.'
