Fair play, it's really down to M to make this stuff clear, not like we've don't this before.

Wow - I'd clearly not thought it through in enough detail. I had assumed that with Sky-fi we'd have full control. I knew I wouldn't have thermostat in every zone/room.…

That looks like a lot of fun! I'm guessing you've not got a full occupancy certificate? Did M hand over the IOC?

I'd agree with April..... 2019. In fact if they started your build now and it went like mine April 2019 is a realistic date!
