just wondering what people would think would be the best way of doing this.

i have got to provide a supply up to a workshop in a garden (about 80 mtrs from the house). it will run underground all the way and then in the subfloor of the house that is currently being worked on all the way to the db.

What will the cable be supplying in the workshop, a single light and a double socket or a lathe and other heavy duty equipment?

The consumer is a fan of landrovers and that will be his garage for it. so there will be possibility of welders, grinders, lathes etc
i was thinking of putting the supply on 40amp mcb
 
80 metres is a substantial distance , will require a proper calculation imo

You could be looking at a 40a c curve mcb to prevent tripping

I would ask for a duct to be laid from the house to the garage with a rope inside.
Pull through a 3 core 16mm swa and also a cat6 cable..

Due to the location heating may be a fair consideration of the loading , but I can just see a nice pot bellied stove. :)

It seems like he is going to be using this garage on a semi-professional bases/serious hobby/past time. Full due consideration needed especially if he has other enthusiast mates helping also using equipment plus the possibility of some heating/water heater. How big is this workshop?
