Fountaineers | Case Study

October 2022

Special fountain open in time to celebrate Diwali

The Siri Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara in Gravesend, Kent is benefiting from an exciting new water feature designed and built by Fountaineers. This was a technically challenging build at a unique and special building. Working with our colleagues from Sian Formwork and Electrical Solutions Europe, we worked on a brief to design a dynamic water feature outside this important religious building.

The final design includes two shallow reflective pools of water which stretch along the front of the main building either side of the entrance to the temple. Within each water feature are five DMX controlled pumps capable of producing a range of exciting dynamic water shows. The feature pools include a full filtration and chemical treatment system comprising of sand filters, UV sterilisers and chemical dosing units. Within the plant room is also a bespoke control panel which provides the fully automatic operation of the water feature as well as the monitoring of the system and protection against faults.

Technical Engineer, Oliver Mitchell really enjoyed the challenge of this project: - “There is no doubt that this is one of the most exciting and special projects that we have ever worked on. To have the opportunity to build a water feature of this size at such a beautiful building has been a special experience for all involved.”

Senior Service Engineer, Andy Morgan worked on the project from the very start and was there to oversee the opening ceremony as well. He was also really pleased with the final outcome: - “There have been a number of challenges to overcome during the project but the final result is truly outstanding. The dynamic water shows really bring this feature to life and I hope that the local community will enjoy this feature for many years to come.”

The Guru Nanak temple is the largest Gurdwara in Europe and the water feature is in daily operation. If you would like to view the water feature, please click here to visit the Gurdwara’s website to see important visitor information. https://www.gurunanakdarbar.org/projecto-1
