Project Design Brief
Due to the significant increase in passenger volumes, it was necessary to upgrade the capacity of all the facilities at the station.
The station refurbishment required an increase in the amount of cables used for communications, lighting and power services which also meant an increase in the amount of cable pits required.
ACO’s Rhinocast® multi-part ductile iron cover and frame system with decorative brass edging was specified. The cable pit covers were configured to suit the large cast in-situ cement concrete pits.
- The project designers also wanted to maintain a uniform appearance throughout the pavement areas.
- The finishes were bedded into the recessed covers, ensuring a visual conformity with the surrounding pavement surfaces.
Other ACO products used:
- Cable pits, trench drains and other access covers.
