Jointly owned by Hounslow Council and Ealing Council, Gunnersbury features Grade II listed Georgian mansions and many other historically significant buildings set within a stunning park landscape. This also includes a museum and a sports hub containing an indoor sports hall, eight outdoor tennis courts and eight full size grass football pitches.
In 2014, Gunnersbury Park was awarded two grants totalling £21m by the Heritage Lottery Fund to completely overhaul the museum and make major improvements to the park. The overall aim is to complete the project by 2026 which will hopefully see the Gunnersbury premises transformed into a high quality public space that will benefit the local community.
Contracted by Gavin Jones Limited, an award-winning Landscape Management Services company, Alpha Rail manufactured and supplied bespoke flat top metal railings and gates.
In total 270m of 800mm high decorative flat top metal railings were manufactured and then installed by contractors in various locations within the Gunnersbury Park grounds.
To accompany the newly installed flat top metal railings, two single leaf and two double leaf gates were also manufactured and supplied by Alpha Rail to enable access in and out of Gunnersbury Parks many attractions.
In keeping with other garden furniture and to protect against rust from bad weather conditions, all metalwork supplied was galvanized and polyester powder coated RAL 9005 Black.
Mike Veness, Contracts Manager at Gavin Jones Limited, commented “Gunnersbury Park is an iconic attraction in the local community, so it was very important to us that the metal railings and gates installed were of the highest quality and on that front, Alpha Rail delivered perfectly.”
Commenting on behalf of Alpha Rail, Phil Ball said “Gunnersbury Park is regarded by many as one of the most important parks in the country, therefore it was imperative that Alpha Rail delivered a service that matched the prestige of this iconic park. Hopefully once all renovation works are complete, Gunnersbury Park will become an attraction that can be enjoyed by many for years to come.”
