  1. Hi to everyone. I'm in the middle of a project that has me worried about the layout of pipes. 1. The mains water comes out of the ground (island will be on top) and then is to be buried screed 90mm and joined on to a pipe that goes through to the store room whilst going over UFH pipes to the boiler and tank. The tap to turn off the water is located here. Is this normal, okay? Is it safe? 2. The pipe work looks okay, it's separated a little, but the cold runs over pipes and join the store room with a tiny elbow to be covered by screed, is this safe? 3. Do I need a stop tap under the island from where the main water emerges from the ground or is it safe for it to travel in screed and then have a stop tap. I've attached a few pics, really hope you can help in anyway.
  2. Hi I am involved with a community build of a first floor room which has never been finished as they ran out of money but now we are trying to fund raise to finish it off that will eventually be used as a youth club. At present I have a rough cast concrete floor approximate area is 150m2 , from there to the Finished floor level I have apx 85mm In that 85mm I need to fit wet UFH system specified at present with 16mm pipe. & a LVT ( maybe Karndean ) finished floor apx 5mm thick. As the room is being used as both a social youth space and a conference room I need to make sure its got some acoustic properties as well as being strong to take 60 – 100 people. So we are looking for a solution that will work for this particular scenario, if using acoustic battens they would have to be with cradles to take up the uneven floor and potentially spaced at 400mm with 2mm chipboard ontop to take the loading . Any help you can suggest would be greatly received Many thanks Chris
  3. I was too keen to download and play with Loopcad and unfortunately my 30 day trial has expired before I could finalise our ground floor plan. Has anyone any idea how I could extend the trial by a week or 2? Here's my latest effort at the layout design - all feedback welcome, but be gentle!
