Project Design Brief

The designers required a subterranean sub-station to cater for the extensive electrical infrastructure required on the site. The sub-station comprised a large room with masonry block walls and is enclosed by access covers that needed to visually integrate with the
granite pavement.

ACO's Solution

  • 4-part Rhinocast® multi-part access cover system with a 40mm stainless steel edge.
  • ACO’s technical support team provided the designers with rebate and beam housing details to assist with the structural design of the 3.5 metre x 2.5 metre access opening
UQ Oral Health Centre


  • The stainless steel decorative edge allowed for the granite paving to be installed into the multi-part system to preserve the visual continuity of the pavement
  • The multi-part system is comprised of individual removable covers and beams to facilitate the installation, maintenance or removal of the electrical substation
