Advice for moving or relocating a commercial gas connection and/or meter

3rd September 2012 written by Richard Hearne in the category Gas Articles

In situations where a gas meter and/or gas connection pipe needs to be relocated it is important that all work is carried out by suitably qualified engineers. Potentially, gas is a very dangerous substance, so it is essential to use gas connection experts to take care of things for you in a safe and responsible manner. We have a highly experienced team who can co-ordinate moving 1Gas meters, relocations of gas pipes or implementing brand new gas pipe or meter connections.

Multiple Party Involvement

For anyone untrained in gas connections, the process of moving or relocating a gas pipe and /or meter may seem complex and time consuming, which can have serious knock- on effects if things don’t run smoothly. This is particularly true given that different parties are responsible for each part of a gas connection. One company is responsible for the gas mains in the road and the gas pipe service to the property. Another company is responsible for the maintenance of the gas meter,  while the end user is responsible for any pipework or equipment downstream of the meter, e.g. gas fires and boilers. For commercial customers or homeowners who rely on gas, downtime can be tricky in terms of running a business at a commercial property for example, or where heating and hot water is imperative, especially during the colder months of the year.

1Gas Aims To Be Different

Instead of organising the work yourself, it makes sense to employ a company like 1Gas to make sense of your requirements and organise engineers to carry out all work for you. 1Gas are helpful and professional gas connection experts when it comes to anything to do with new gas pipe and meter connections, alterations, upgrades, downgrades and disconnections.

If your gas meter or gas connection pipe is situated in a position that is causing an obstruction or would be better situated elsewhere, 1Gas can take care of everything, from gas  meter removal to all gas pipe alterations and then reconnection to the meter – ensuring a safe and time-efficient process every time.

We need to connect an existing gas supply from one building to another adjacent building some 20 metres distant.
Please advise if this is too small a job or can you quote.
