Subject: EPS supplier and retaining wall retrofit


I am looking for a supplier for large blocks of construction grade EPS (say 4’x4’x8’). I have a situation where an existing masonry retaining wall requires retrofit due to inadequate vertical reinforcement. In addition to specifying a structural retrofit I am considering specifying that the backfill be partially removed and replaced with EPS to reduce the lateral soil load on the wall. I would appreciate any leads or advice.

Thanks in advance.
