During their summer break, Sussex Coast College in Hastings has had a makeover of their main building entrance.

EA Group won the contract to provide a new entrance solution that included a revolving door and two pass doors being incorporated into a new entrance portal.

Delivering the entire project to an exacting deadline on time and on budget, EA Group ensured that the refurbishment was ready for the new college term which of course minimalised disruption to their day to day operation.

By choosing EA Group’s EA023M model revolving door, the installation was possible without the need to build the door on a matwell ring, negating the need to disturb the under floor heating that the building uses.

Prior to the refurbishment, the college had two sliding doors at this entrance and given the buildings positioning at altitude on the south coast, the wind used to whistle through the reception.

Now however, all is well. The college has a revolving door that will keep the wind out and their heating costs down.

Robert Munday, EA Group’s Managing Director commented; “Yet again, EA have proved that we are the company who consistently deliver quality entrance solutions into the education sector”

Farnborough Airport or TAG London Farnborough Airport is an operational business/executive general aviation airport in Farnborough, Rushmoor, Hampshire, England. The airfield is the home of the Farnborough Airshow which is held in even numbered years. The first powered flight in Britain was at Farnborough on 5 October 1908, when Samuel Cody took off in his British Army Aeroplane No 1.

After TAG took control of the airport from the MOD, it invested in a series of new infrastructure projects, including a new radar unit and a resurfaced runway. The most striking new constructions were a new control tower, a large hangar unit, and finally a brand new terminal building that opened in 2006, all designed by Reid Architecture and Buro Happold. The designs won a series of awards, and were nominated for Building of the Year by Building magazine in 2007. The terminal was formally opened by HRH Prince Andrew.

In 2014 the airport approached EA Group as they required a solution for sliding doors which were pretty draughty and presented a heat or air conditioned air loss issue throughout the year.

Many options were tabled and together with digital surveys, many renders and digital fly through videos, EA Group offered the solution of a multi-function revolving door that could offer all the benefits of a revolving door, but at peak times could be parked and could become once again a sliding door if required.

In 2015 an order was placed for this solution and was installed thereafter during a refit of the lounge:

The Ark is a prominent GE Real Estate owned office building in Hammersmith, London, and was constructed in 1992.
When EA were approached the building had a tired circle slide door without an air curtain. During the depths of winter the reception and atrium became a cold place.

As there were existing pass doors for DDA passage the solution was to install an automatic revolving door. The turnkey solution was completed in just one weekend.
