    Gas Meter Relocation

    Heating Engineers

    We are going to have our existing garage demolished to make way for a 2 story extension, however the incomming gas and electricity supplies and meters are in the garage and need to be relocated. I've just received a quote to have the supply and meter relocated, including the digging of the trenches, and it's just over £1,000 for 7.5 meters of pipework. On the plans in the link below, the current gas meter is located where the Utility room will be going, on the left hand wall of the garage, where the utility room sink is. The suggestion was to move it to under the left window of the new porch as there is an existing wall there, of the porch which will be replaced. I'm looking for ideas as to how I can reduce the length of the new gas supply if at all possible.

    "It might be worth asking a local company instead of a gas and electric suppliers as they can be very expensive. Moving it 7.5 metres for 1000+ seems very steep"

    "You need to confirm with your builder that the existing gas supply will not be underneath the new extension as this is not allowed and only the gas carrier can make alterations to the incoming supply."
