I have 35 years of plumbing experience, and I've been vetted by Just Answer and am qualified to answer questions in this technical category, but I don't know if that satisfies your definition of "qualified".Please be aware that JustAnswer is an online only technical assistance service, and unfortunately we don't provide engineers who can visit you. This is a low cost service aimed at answering fairly routine questions on plumbing (and other topics). You haven't [yet] paid for someone to design your bathroom and provide a bill of materials. It sounds as though you want to engage a plumber to work on your project. How much that person charges is very much up to them.To answer your specific question about a shower waste pipe diameter, the answer is that it needs to be a minimum of 40mm, but it might need to increase if the run is long or if other waste pipes branch in along the way. You said that it will join to a "kitchen pipe", but that's ambiguous - a kitchen pipe could mean almost anything.
I think you need a plumber who's local to you, and with whom you can arrange to be able to consult as and when you need. Your project is large - not to me personally, but as I've said this is a low-cost service aimed at answering questions about quite narrow issues.At the moment you're at the early stages, but if you have a specific question(s) then I'm happy to answer it(/them).
There are tens of thousands of plumbers in the UK. Do you live somewhere very remote where it's difficult to find one?
I'm about 370 miles away. Also, I wouldn't be able to start until January 2022.Did you ask them to undertake the whole project, or just act on a consulting basis?
I wish you luck in your search.
