To find out whether or not you are eligible for a self-certified agreement, complete the questionnaire on the Thames Water Build Over website (link above). Or ask us! I feel like crying, it seems that sorting out our enlargement is one thing at a time. So we lost our builder on Monday. I had already created the building control app, so I had trimmed, I have now received more building offers and some might be ready to start in a few weeks, hooray! Today I received a letter from Thames Water saying that it seems that we intend to build within 3 meters of a public sewer and therefore we need to apply for a construction agreement. Realistically, it will take a few months to clarify this point. I need sewer drawings and plans, but I`m really confused, how do I do this, does anyone have experience? Obviously, we are not breathing. Could it be the architect? How do I know where I`m going? The well is located in the side backpedaling and is 2.8m from the back of the building where the extension will begin (Sod`s law). I have to sort it out as quickly as possible, but I`m stuck and our architect doesn`t record. If someone else had to do it, can you give any advice on what I`m going to do next? And why, in the world, did none of the project owners who cited, our architect of the Eningeers, take it over? It would have been much easier if we had known about it from the beginning, rather than delaying everything. Is this unusual? If your answers meet our needs, we will send you an agreement.
If this is not the case, we will forward you to request an authorized build-over agreement for which you will have to pay. There is a discount for online payment. For sewers with a diameter greater than 160 mm, you must inform us once the work is completed, so that we can order a CCTV study after construction to check the condition of the sewers. We will check the CCTV investigative material before granting permission. Most Build-Overs do not need a CCTV survey, which allows us to get immediate permission. However, if your sewer is not a house or a diameter of more than 160 mm (6 inches), we will order a CCTV study before construction as soon as we agree with your project. I managed to talk to my architect and she can do the drawings, which is a relief. However, I am confused by the pipes – I had construction workers lift the well so that they were aware of the pipes. And I have no idea how we would know if they go under the extension, because the flow is on the side and the pipe goes from front to back (so it looks like it`s parallel to the extension). How in the world would you know if it revolves around your back? Sounds unlikely? Thames Water said it takes 21 times they received the application (and their money!), and we shouldn`t start working until we have the deal, but my architect seemed to think we could just start if the popes aren`t really under construction? So confusing.. .
