SMT Electrical Contractors completed the electrical design and installation of this luxurious building.

Crowned by a 12ft gilded dome, the £2.7m Gurdwara is the first in the North East to be purpose-built. SMT Electrical Contractors completed the electrical design and installation of this luxurious building, to the delight our client.

The installation briefly comprised of electrical distribution equipment, premium power accessories and lighting fittings, CCTV, AV and security systems, all complete by SMT.

Inspired by the Golden Temple in Amritsar in India, one of the most important shrines in the Sikh religion, the new temple overlooks Newcastle city centre and St James’s Park.

It was a historic day for Newcastle’s Sikh community when they celebrated the opening of a new temple.

With a procession from the old Gurdwara to the new location in Cottenham Street, there was a grand opening with a display from a martial arts group and a flower ceremony, before formal speeches from faith leaders, MPs and leader of Newcastle Council Nick Forbes.
