I am building a new home with Simonds. They poured the slab yesterday and there was light rain yesterday.
Today they have started putting the frame up and I don't think the concrete would have cured properly. The supervisor said it should be ok as they are not putting the roof on for a few days yet.
it is too early for the builder to start the frame?

It is common practice these day. The frame has little pressure impact.
3 in 1 Supadiverta. 0.75mm filter. No downpipes diverted. Can delete overflow pipe. Cleaner Neater Cheaper
Supa Gutter Pumper. An inexpensive gutter overflow solution.

Textbook says no but I have done it many times myself without adverse effect. If you are just walking on it and assembling light frames it should be Ok but i would not put a pallet on it.

Not so.. you will need to check your wind loading category and plate-> Frame anchoring system
I've seen dynabolts & Hilti explosive anchors cracking slab edges ..please check for concrete cracking
around Impact anchors. No Fixings No loading
