Can I build a new extension over an existing mains water supply pipe?

You should contact your water supplier, as this would prevent access for repair and maintenance. The existing mains water supply pipe will have to be either re-routed around the new extension or it will have to be installed in a duct so that it can be easily removed to allow it to be maintained or repaired.
