I'm a fan of your site, and circulate many of your photos around the office.
Here is an installation in a parking area of a residential high-rise.
The transformer is certainly protected from mechanical damage, and the "sarcophagus" appears neatly constructed.
Other than the obvious code issues of clearance and access to equipment, dust, debris and garbage is accumulating in the well around the transformer.
Needless to say, this was done long after sparky had finished his work.
