Simple question (I think!)
Rewiring what was an old Doctors Surgery. Its now being changed back to a domestic property. Are there any problems in running cables from different phases together?
There will be no metal distribution boxes, and all cables will be T&E.

Now that its a domestic again, does it justify a 3 phase installation? Is it really that big? Does the customer want all the hassle of a 3 phase (and possibly business tariff)?

Just because it has a 3 phase meter, doesnt mean it has to stay that way.
No issues with adjacent cables

Customer wants to keep 3 phase for a detached garage / workshop (when built), not a huge place, but I think he thinks the 60A per phase will be a problem, compared to a single 100A supply, highly unlikely in my opinion, but customer always right and all that! lol

Check to see what tarrif they are being charged, it may be more on the 3 phase to a single phase. or commercial/domestic

With eon and npower certainly, domestic is domestic and whether you are single or 3-phase does not affect the tariff. I thought they were all like that.
