Geocellular Stormwater Management - StormBrixx SD by ACO

Marymead Retirement Village and Hub, Canberra, ACT

The Aerie is a retirement village positioned on a tree-lined street in Narrabundah, one of Canberra's most picturesque suburbs. It houses a boutique community for over 55s in new purpose designed spacious homes, resort facilities and a vibrant and supportive village atmosphere.

Project Design Brief

Designers had to incorporate an underground detention tank to capture and detain surface water runoff from pavements and various roof systems from a nearby area with steep topography. The system needed to be strong, maintainable and adequately sized to meet the hydraulic requirements of the catchment.

ACO's Solution

  • StormBrixx® SD geocellular stormwater management system.
  • ACO's Technical Services provided the designer with structural calculations, installation drawings and a bill of materials.

Benefits

  • The unique pillar configuration provides a high void ratio of 95% to maximise storage.
  • The brick bonding and cross bonding feature provides unparalleled stability in the construction of the tank.
  • An access chamber provides access for cleaning large diameter pipe inlets as well as to facilitate silt management.
