Looking at elevation it looks like stacker not at ceiling level.

My KDR Metricon Hampshire - Liberty - 45 Melb

Bitumen paint just isn’t adequate. Have seen retaining walls where the texture coat blisters quite bad.

You could look at it that the "drafts person" engaged the engineer and therefore the "contract/transaction" is between those parties.
