Global climate change is causing more frequent extreme weather events and must be counteracted by more complex and sophisticated drainage concepts. ACO achieves this with intelligent system solutions; which have a dual purpose: protecting people from water, and water from people. ACO’s external civil construction products are specified in urban infrastructure applications to perform either a drainage function or to provide an enclosure for the safe routing of services. All products are designed to safely meet the needs of an urban environment. Being in constant visual and physical contact with the environment, they are purpose designed to harmonise with a project’s design requirements.
