    £5k - £7k

    The kitchen doesn't need 2x 6mm² cooker circuits.

    Reassuring. I’ve done it on a day rate for builders . So far 3400 just the kitchen cabinet sockets and appliances left to do and lights outside after it’s rendered so 3600 tops. That’s about 12 days at 200 and 1200 materials. If I’d priced per point then about 4500 on an average 45 per point. No vat not registered for it. So I’m in the ball park ?

    depends on size and shape. My kitchen has two, one on each side. The cooker and/or multioven can be on different sides, or repositioned at whim.

    Much easier than adding or changing at some future date.

    There's actually gas on both sides as well.

    It’s got a hob rated at 7kw and 2 single ovens both 2kw each. I could have gone down the diversity route but easy enough to put the ovens on one circuit and the hob on another

    And for the eagle eyed - yes only one 6mm circuit on the board - I actually wired the ovens on a 2.5mm RFC as didn’t have enough 6mm on the van

    Get some 4mm² T&E.

    You can use it for both 32A cooker RFCs AND 32A socket RFCs - RFC standing for Radial Final Circuit, of course.

    Yep It’s just I had none with me but a loads of 2.5 so was convenient. I don’t particularly like rfc’s prefer radials in this case not really an rfc more a case of two cables in parallel as ovens are one on top of each other

    You seem to have missed the point
    Radial begins with an 'R' as well.

    Oh yes I see your TLA now. Yes of course aware of radials of 32A on 4mm and 20A/25Aon 2.5mm for that matter (depending on installation method/derating factors)
