Constructing an access panel in drywall

I am just in the planning stage of finishing my basement and have one questionable area that is worring me. I have a water treatment system along with well tank in one corner that I want to frame around, but build a large access panel on. The panel will need to be about 6' high and 5' wide. The wall will be 7.5' high and drop celling about 6.5'. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make something that blends with walls and is stable during removel and reassembly?

Hi Boards,
- speaking as a well guy, I can guarantee that you'll have a moisture problem if you wall in these systems. I'd put in louvre doors, both for easy access and to ventilate.
