Montrose House Refurbished Heritage Gates approved by Historic England

Montrose House is a late 17th-century Grade II* listed building in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames. The owners approached EA Group with a vision of refurbishing the original central gates. This was due to their worn condition and the potential structural dangers that they posed.

With Heritage England involved, the project was undertaken EA to replicate the gates exactly. The original gates were taken down in two stages. Firstly the arch was removed to ensure a safe working area below. Following that, the main gates and framework was delicately removed. Once removed, the historic gates were transported to the fabrication facility.

These beautiful historic gates were to be rebuilt using the original ironwork. This required them to be carefully stripped and repaired. When a new component part was required due to the existing poor condition, a new was manufactured to match exactly using reclaimed or aged material.

After several months of delicate work the new gates were returned and erected on-site.

Bringing a fresh new lease of life to the main entrance of this outstanding house in Richmond, Surrey. These new refurbished gates will now stand as the centerpiece to this magnificent property for many years to come.

This started as a simple enquiry for a revolving door and quickly developed into something quite unique. The designer was looking for an all-glass door that could be put into a Corten rusty steel entrance for the Nando Head Office. The information provided to EA was very minimal, below was the concept image we were provided:

Not only did we offer the revolving door but also the Corten surround that other companies that had been approached were not interested in. Below are some of the drawings we developed:

The end result now installed is a far cry from the enquiry we received and looks great within the newly fitted out offices.

The interior of the building is non-standard too, the staircase incorporates and slide to return back to the ground floor should you wish:

EA Group used the latest materials that are longer lasting and makes for a more sustainable entrance. Furthermore to add to the challenge, EA Group needed to ensure the gates were BS EN12453 compliant. This involved using the latest safety equipment whilst still not deviating from the original historic based design.

The automatic sliding gates were carefully designed to ensure the overall appearance was in full keeping to the original set. Additionally, new master and slave operators were installed for a faster and safer operation. Furthermore, electronic safety in the form of safety edges, induction loops and photocells were neatly installed to the new automatic gate.

All of these upgrades ensured that the new gates exceeded current legislation. The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn in London have a safer and more reliable entrance.
