That's very sloppy! Just tell Metricon you want it done properly. If they don't agree then lodge a dispute with them, per the dispute process in the contract. If after this there is no resolution register with NSW Fair Trading for an inspection and on site mediation. If the inspector agrees with you they will issue an order for Metricon to correct it. I suggest you also check other things on your build carefully and include them on the same formal dispute if necessary.
