The repair work consisted of the following:
In lieu of using heavy dirt to create the required topography for the landscaping - which would have added excessive dead load to the supported slab - CPS used more than 5,000 sheets of 60 psi insulation. The light-weight boards where glued together and built-up to a height of ten feet and gradually tapered to create the desired mountainous look. Soil and landscaping was placed over the insulation to create a beautiful garden roof.
