Rain has finally stopped and we started digging the pool today!
Getting out of the ground on all projects has been a nightmare this year.

Variation Payment

Most contracts require the variation to be added to the next progress payment

Reporting an issue we've sen on site but shouldn't go onsite

what was happening was they would waterproof and then other trades would come and walk all over it and put ladders etc in there.
That's why you need full time supervision

Disgruntled with Metricon and Pre-Site Manager process

If you are in NSW my theory is that they don't have the insurance capacity to start your build so they need to finish other jobs in 2022 before they…

You can definitely get your rough ins done.
