Im sure I am not the first one to come across this issue but i couldnt really find anything else when searching the forum.

Currently having my extension built, I have a location for my underfloor heating manifold. I have a stud wall what which i need to place on top of the pipes. First question is what is the best way to fix the floor plate to the floor (as i dont want to hit a pipe)

Secondly, we haven't layed any Celotex or screed yet, is there an alternate solution anyone can recommend that will comply with building regs. (we have a block and beam floor)

Here is an image of where the manifold will sit with the highlighted stud wall.

I would glue them down. Once stud is fixed to the walls either side its going nowhere
