  1. Have a quote for laying a new 25mm water pipe in my access road. Is the price sensible? Quote is £4,000 (zero rated for VAT). Length of road is 35 metres, so £114-a-metre. The road surface is thick concrete, no steel. Includes the pipe, all back fill and making good. And 1x grab lorry for muck-away. Quote allows for one circular-saw blade for cutting the concrete. Extra blades will be at cost. The road is private, if that is relevant, so no permit costs, etc. What do you think?
  2. Hi all, I am breaking ground on my build (Hooray!) albeit only to connect my temporary builders electricity supply ("TBS"). UKPN are laying the main up to the boundary of my property (£££ ). Is the following quote generally OK for the extra bits that I have to arrange: Ground mounted meter box, £600 (zero rated for VAT as supply & fit) Excavate a short length of trench from my plot your boundary to the meter box location (perhaps 2 metres under concrete, 485mm deep), lay duct and backfill with warning tape, form concrete plinth, and fix meter housing £950 (zero rated for VAT) Electrical work required to provide the earth and tails: awaiting a quote. How much might I expect this to be? Any advice appreciated. By the way, does the meter box need to be ground mounted? There is a panel fence there but not much else.
