Installing gas cooker/oven in fitted kitchen

Currently we have an electric fan oven installed as a unit in our kitchen with a gas hob in the work surface. I would like to replace it with a gas oven but at the moment we have the waste and hot water supply for a dishwasher running under the oven(in the plinth, behind the kick board). Does anyone know of a gas oven that will replace an electric one in this situation or a posssible solution to routing the waste / hot water from the dishwasher. Floors are solid (screed over ???)

Do you mean that you'd like to replace the whole existing installation with a free standing stove ? Or are you looking for a built-in gas oven ?
A web search for built-in gas ovens should produce a good few hits, but a free standing stove is much easier to install in your situation. I take it that the waste pipe is no bigger than 32 mm (1.5 inches) in diameter. If the supply pipe to dishwasher is placed in front of the waste pipe, with both being as close to the floor as possible, then a free standing stove should actually have enough ground clearance to be able to fit over them.
If you wander around the shops with a tape measure and take notes of the heights of the stoves compared to you worktops, then it should give you an idea of what sort of modifictions need done to the pipework to take it below the new stove, and to the floor to lift your stove to the height of your work surfaces.

Would like a free standing cooker but.. Due to the run needed by the waste to get round the kitchen and exit the wall above floor height the pipe is about 132mm above floor height, couldn't see a way of getting a free standing cooker in there without it standing 2 to 5 inches proud of the work surface!!! There are some cookers which have 75mm chrome legs but that still leaves the hob 2 inches higher than work surface (completely vetoed by swmbo).
Cheers for any thoughts

Then it's going to have to be seperate hob and oven then. Shop about and find the best for you.

built-in ovens fit in the same housing unit no matter what power they use. Just look for one with the same dimensions for an easy life.

Well B******* me I thought all those fitted ovens were electric - must have led a sheltered life:-) thanx for the link I will ahve a look around - just one question though what type of connection is needed for the gas - cookers I've had in the past had a bayonet type fixing. We've a gas hob so there must be a gas supply very close - can I use this??

You'll have to see what the installation instruction say. The hob need to be done first then the oven. This more or less demands that the oven is connected with a hose. Possibly with the bayonet outlet in an adjoining cupboard and a hole between the cabinets.

ovens were electric were because they are more popular. Gas hob/electric oven is the most used combination. Fan assisted electric ovens have some advantages over other slower electric or gas ovens (but not for baking pavlova.. hmmm... pavlova..yum) but anyway, where was I? Oh yes, if baking is important make sure that that it has conventional heat setting available too. Lots of good brands, but I love Neff ovens.

Moved about 2 years ago from similar sized house with Gas C/H, gas cooker where gas bills were higher to current house with Gas C/H & Electric oven (and economy 7) electric bills much much higher. Not really any changes in other appliances or patterns of use (apart from rarely used electric shower and washing machine/dishwasher on timers to run after 2am) - conclusion was that electric oven is more expensive (lots of baking, casseroles, roasts, pizzas). Not really scientific - not checked oven power rating, on times etc. Also taste/smell of food such as pizzas seems wrong despite continual cleaning of oven maybe a personal thing
