EA Group were instructed to remove two revolving doors originally installed by another company that had become unreliable. EA Group offered a complete turnkey solution. One of the two doors has been replaced today. Here are some images of the original:

EA Group are proud to be the company that were chosen to replace eight oversize revolving doors to a pair of adjoining Norman Foster designed towers that are 105 metres (344 ft) and 200 metres (656 ft) in height and are located in Canary Wharf in the city’s Docklands. The existing doors had become unreliable and the client was seeking another company that could replace the doors like for like in appearance and undertake the works over successive weekends.

Due to the secure nature of the work and the location, EA Group had a tall order on their hands (most around 4000mm in height)

Each removal took place on a Friday night

Then carefully over a number of weekends the doors were installed and comissioned:

This building was handed over a week ago. Our part of the brief was a modern revolving door manufactured in glass and stainless steel to allow more light into the reception.

The original tired entrance with solid drum walls:

Improbable Worlds Limited (commonly referred to as Improbable) are a British multinational technology company founded in 2012 with its headquarters in Farringdon, London.

The company have created SpatialOS, which is a computation platform that enables the creation of massive simulations and virtual worlds for use in video games and corporate simulations. The firm partnered with Google in December 2016.

Improbable Worlds came to us with a requirement to enhance the security to the main and side entrances of their London offices. We raised a quote on the same day of the survey, and our EA Swing Speed Lanes were installed just six weeks later.

EA Group are delighted to announce that we have installed the two new circle sliding door entrances and security speed lane turnstiles at the reception of the Subsea 7 new purpose built, high-tech office building on the Brighton Road in Sutton.

Subsea 7 is a world-leading seabed-to-surface engineering, construction and services contractor to the offshore energy industry. They have recently relocated their staff from Quadrant House, also in Sutton, to this nearby new 14,000 m2 principal building.

Prior to construction, we were able to demonstrate our circle sliding door entrances and security speed lane turnstiles. The main contractor, sub-contractors and architect all visited EA Group at our Bookham facility to view operational units within our premises. Some architectural features were requested, the modifications were made and approved by all prior to going into production.

Incidentally, the former Subsea 7 Sutton offices at Quadrant House also have an EA Group revolving door entrance, and other Subsea 7 offices also have our turnstiles installed, so the company knows that they are in safe hands when it comes to a reliable product from a market leader in entrance solutions.

This impressive new workplace will contribute to the ongoing town centre regeneration, and will also allow their business to grow whilst remaining in a town that has been a home to the company for many years.

The contemporary and flexible office space, extensive breakout areas, presentation suites, training rooms, a kitchen & restaurant will accommodate over 700 staff on-site together with designated office space for their key collaborative partners.

Bournemouth University (BUIC) needed an access control turnstile solution that was both robust and aesthetically pleasing to control the flow of students at both an administration building and a student hall of residence.

They also needed the system to be supplied and installed in double quick time, as with a new academic year upon them, this very popular south coast university would soon be bustling with new students that needed a degree of controlling.

Fortunately, they called upon the expertise of EA Group who were able to identify the best turnstile for this application was their EA Tripod turnstile model, and furthermore, installed it with additional glass balustrades within the allotted time frame.

International House is located in Ealing town centre a few moments’ walk from the station and adjacent to the Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre. The offices had two fairly old and narrow revolving doors. These had four compartments which left little comfort for the users each day. One door was beyond economical repair and had been put out of action some time ago:

The building was already being refurbished when EA Group attending meetings with CBRE and British Land. EA were asked to determine how easily and quickly these could be replaced. Soon thereafter we installed two replacement doors with a three wing configuration to add comfort to the visitors and users of this building:

For many door companies, offering an oversize entrance door is a headache, manufacturing it with a short lead-time is often a non-starter. However for EA Group this is what we do. And we have recently done it again at St Magnus House.

Sited near Monument in Lower Thames Street, London, St Magnus House is a sixties building named after the nearby St Magnus Church, one of the 51 parish churches rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London.

EA Revolving Door installed at St Magnus House London

 

St Magnus House had a non-functioning 3 metre tall all glass door that had been installed many years ago by another manufacturer. EA Group were tasked with replacing this oversize automatic door with another that met the latest EN16005 regulations.

Over the course of two days, we carefully removed and replaced their existing door with a brand new EA bespoke automatic revolving door that fitted exactly into the same space, not only above ground, but with an underfloor drive mechanism and bespoke mountings that were fabricated off site to fit into and suit the existing slab recess.

To add to this feat of engineering, the new EA automatic door was made available to the site with an expedited delivery to meet their tight programme of works.

EA Group employ staff with decades of automatic revolving door product experience, from concept to installation. The project was delivered on time, on budget, even with the technical challenges that we were faced with.
