Brisbane Portside Wharf

Brisbane’s Portside Wharf was opened on August 29, 2006, a world class passenger terminal, catering for ships of all types and sizes. The nearby riverfront precinct comprises restaurants, fresh produce markets, cinemas and a premium function centre all set along a public plaza and vibrant wharf.

Project Design Brief

During storms, to keep the numerous flat walkways and access paths free from hazardous surface water build up, designers have decided on hundreds of metres of trench drainage.

ACO's Solution

  • In highly (foot) trafficked areas at close proximity to the waterfront, Grade 316 stainless steel Heelguard® Anti-slip grates were selected to ensure safety of passage for the thousands of people that visit each week.


  • Manufactured by ACO, these grates are locked into ACO Drain modular precast channels made from durable polymer concrete with integrally cast stainless steel edge rails. This gives the trench drain a highly polished aesthetic appearance as well as superior corrosion resistance
