Hi Zimo,

Yes it can...

You would normally run pipes(all services) as low as possible... underneath the bottom of the unit is best, so you don't have to notch the unit's. Much tidier fit in general. Most appliances are also notched out at the back at plinth level to allow for this, so you can push the appliances back further/closer to the wall.

Kind regards
