Today there are more and more people deciding to have their home designed and built to match their individual needs. This can be an extremely stressful time, no matter what the timeline or budget. Constantly trying to juggle work and family commitments and keeping on top of the build can be difficult, so it’s important that you have your architect complete detailed plans for each of the tradesmen.
One thing that is vital to get right first time, is the plumbing and heating. Before your plumber begins the ‘first fit’ on your new home, you will need to work out exactly where you want appliances, kitchen equipment, bathroom fittings, showers, toilets lightening etc.
Making sure that your designs work with your available space and budget are often things that get overlooked. You need to consider the placement of radiators, or are you opting for underfloor heating, or solar power. What type of heating system will be the most economical and efficient for the size of home you are building?
Working off architectural drawings is the best way to ensure that everything is exactly where you want them. There should be no mistakes made or no excuses if there are. A good plumber will thoroughly check the plans before setting to work and highlight anything that may be a problem.
The next stage of plumbing for a new build is the ‘second fix’ plumbing, which happens once the joinery and interior walls are in place. It means connecting all appliances and sanitary ware to the pipework, testing, and certifying them. This will include the boiler, radiators, toilets, taps and more. If your plumber has laid the ‘first fix’ pipework correctly this should all go without any hiccups. Your plumber will also look after the insulation of the heating pipes both internal and external. This will ensure they do not lose any warmth, and therefore conserve energy.
