My builder informed me that they are unable to install a wall niche as per signed Floor Plans, please refer attached, FloorPlans.pdf. The reason they have mentioned is "Single stud wall only drawn and installed. Double stud wall is required to install shower niche".
Building Commission Report indicates that the builder is defect and provide a niche in wall, please refer WallNiche.pdf.
Your prompt reply on this matter is appreciated.
PS: Plan indicates "Wall niche 400sq at 1200 AFL".

how wide is the niche??
If it is smaller than the distance between the two studs then it is ok. It is possible.
If you have 450 centre studs then you can get niche approx 450mm wide. If you have 600mm stud centers then you can get a niche approx 600 wide.
If your niche is wider than these two figures then the builder can easily retrofit another stud and place a lintel if required in worst case.
