What our clients say

Philip KinsellaManaging Director, GLP Consulting Engineers

As M&E consulting engineers, we utilised the independent advice provided by Stark Works to resolve a complex issue on a major gas supply to Greater London House, In Camden. Where the bigger utility providers were unable to resolve the issue, Chris and Mark from Stark Works’ team provided prompt and concise technical advice with a network capacity check, design and gas meter replacement, which resolved all the issues and enabled us to successfully satisfy our client.

Tony KavanaghHead of Utilities, London Square

If companies issue variations without fair justification, we simply we won’t use them going forward. We rely on cost certainty, and Stark Works consistently provide this.

FAQs: Gas Connections

What are the different types of gas connections?

Gas connections include mains and services, with mains referring to below ground pipes supplying multiple meter installations and services being pipes from mains to individual meter installations.

What is the difference between a gas 'main' and a gas 'service'?

A gas main refers to a below-ground pipe that supplies more than 2 primary meter installations, while a gas service is a pipe from a main up to and including the outlet of the 1st ECV to an individual meter installation.

Why can’t a medium-pressure meter be installed internally?

Strict guidelines must be followed to obtain approval for internal installation, considering safety measures and regulatory standards.

What are the proximities for a gas main from a building?

Gas main pipework must be kept a minimum of 1.0m clearance from a building for low-pressure pipework and a minimum of 3.0m for medium-pressure pipework.

What distance (below Ground) is required between natural gas pipes and other utilities?

A minimum of 250mm clearance is advised from gas pipes to other utilities.
