The St Edmund’s RC School project in Portsmouth includes two sets of gates; one is the main entrance to the school and one a pedestrian gate to the other side, ‘Eagle Gate’ which is on Upper Arundel Street at the pupil entrance.
This gate was commissioned in 2015 to tell the story of the school namesake and create a landmark feature for the school as it undergoes its own renaissance.
They are 5m x 3m x 30cm and are automated electric gates controlled via reception. There is a small pedestrian gate next to this which is also automated for security.
This was awarded the Portsmouth Society Best Landscape Design in 2016.
It is Pete’s old secondary school and he will working over the next few years to help improve its surroundings.
