Hi Jan,
it's ok to box in your pipework as long as there is no jionts on the pipework and that the boxing can be removed as a safety aspect for leaks,but i WOULDN'T box in your meter as you will need to get to it in an emergancy to isolate it and also to read the meter (the meter needs to be accessable at all times!!

hope this helps Mark
