Long story short, he picked up a few things and not surprisingly the waterproofing was not to building codes. The alternative method used by M is allowable if it's in the contract and we signed off on that approach. It wasn't and we didn't. End result is the waterproofers had to come back and waterproof the entire floor area of the upstairs bathrooms including toilet area with retainers added and to make some changes to the balcony area to comply. Our inspector has had this discussion with M in the past hence his preferred timing of inspection. Thanks to all the readers of this blog that commented to my earlier waterproof Q'n some weeks back - check here for previous post.
To M's credit, they did it without fuss. M also arranged for the downstairs toilet waste point to be corrected as well - some 3.5 months after our inspector queried the position and angle of the first approach at his first visit. It taken awhile but M finally got it right.
The independent inspector was in the area so he dropped in to ensure all works were carried out correctly and he stated it was one of the better waterproofing jobs he has seen M do. Extremely happy with that comment - imagine the comment if it had been done that way the first time around.

Last week also included the flooring guys coming out to ensure the slab is perfectly flat ahead of the floorboards going down (a couple of weeks off) and a chippie back to ensure upstairs is perfectly flat for carpets (also a couple of weeks off).
This week is all about tiles.
