move gas pipe

Post by Florbela L on Monday 15 Jul 2019 13:33 PM

My main goal is to install a dishwasher. However, the specific question I have here is that in the location where I can put the dishwasher, there is a gas pipe sticking out about 15cm from the wall, which would make the dishwasher stick out 15cm as well. Is it possible to make the gas pipe stick out less (for example only 5cm instead of 15cm)? Or move the pipe? I can provide photos as necessary. Is "plumbing" the correct category to ask this question, or something else?

Fire Hose Reel and Manual Call Point / Alarm Bell

Post by Anonymous on Thursday 21 Mar 2019 11:27 AM

My contractor installed fire hose reel recently. Upon checking by building management, we realized that there are no manual call point and alarm bell installed. I am inexperienced. When I asked the contractor, he said I didn't mention I wanted manual call point and now sends me another quote. I would like to know if he is right? Is a reliable contractor will quote for the whole set, as no point installing fire hose reel without the manual call points and alarm bell. Can I hold him accountable?

May I know if it is compulsory to install manual call points and alarm bells? We currently have one in the office but it is not near the entrance. Are there any distance restriction to have one? Our office is 11,000 square feet.
