Asset Protection for Flow Water Meter Installation
Case Study Details
Nambucca Shire Council
STAKKAbox™ ULTIMA Connect, Concrete Cover Slab
AC Trunk Water Main Pipes running from the Reservoir and feeding the Shires water supply network. Following the area being excavated a separate chamber was constructed around each pipe to house an Ultrasonic Flow Meter Sensor that was installed after the chambers were completed.
Design specifications required a minimum Class B chamber load capacity, however the ULTIMA’s impressive Class D strength properties offered increased security and prolonged life-span benefits for the assets electrical components.
The STAKKAbox™ access chambers were rapid assembled around the pipes without the need for third party contractors or additional plant hire. Modifications were completed as the ULTIMA chambers were assembled, using standard cutting disc tools and a rubber mallet to customise the clean entry and exit of the pipes from each chamber. Due to the ULTIMA Connect’s customisation flexibility, Cubis were able to eliminate the need to turn off the water supply or physically cut the pipes during the installation process.
The complete installation of the chambers took a total of two (2) days including the excavation of the large site area, placement of the precast base slabs, assembly of both customised STAKKAbox™ access chambers, installation of the precast roof covers, backfilling, and final finish to surround landscaping. No specialist builders or tooling were required providing impressive savings to the asset owner including cost and resource allocation.
