Hi guys may have job coming up to lower a ceiling but there is a steel gas pipe coming across part of ceiling coming from upstairs to downstairs cooker . Would I be able to leave the pipe above ceiling if vented or have to renew back to meter and bring new pipe down below lowered ceiling ? Thanks

What type of space is above? Voids need to be ventilated.

Hi, Im afraid you'll need to be 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' for that sort of discussion, If you're not I suggest calling a local engineer.

He's wanting advice if it's ok to board over the gas pipe

How does he need to be gas safe registered to do this???

I really do appreciate the various bits of advice over the time I've used the site Shaun, but I seem to got your goat on this one, I read it as, should the op renew the gas pipe to the meter if ventilation didn't make it conform to regs, I was mistakenly as it would appear thinking that the op was suggesting that he may undertake this, which would constitute gas work, in my limited experience as an engineer Ive come across various handy with a monkey wrench types, that would just see it as just changing a bit of pipe, of course advice about boading over a gas pipe is sensible to look for, I was just suggesting he had a 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' look at it, my understanding of the use of the site is that you dont give out gas advice unless in the 'Registered Professional Gas Engineer' forum. Anyway apologies if I misunderstood the question. As I said I'll get back in my box, and stop casting nastursuims.

Are you leaving the original ceiling and floor boarding above in their original place
