Even though a safety rail is not on our plan down the side of our house - but there is a 1800mm drop to floor below and a fence to the otherside of a 1m wide x 4 m long ramp. Neither the plan drawer or the builder picked up on it?
Do we the owners need to cover the costs or does the builder? It is plain to see it is a danger to anyone treading beside it. It has been picked up by the permit inspector at occupancy certification.

Hi MPJ, I believe that generally speaking, if it's not on the plans you will need to pony up regardless of whether the builder has claimed they are offering you a fixed price contract or not.
Truth is you these sorts of little extra considerations are part and parcel of the building process and you can't really trust the builder or drafty to identify them all upfront.

LOL, worksafe is a builders cost and responsibility a
If you refuse to pay it... let him sue you for it in the Courts.
instead he will frustrate the contract and stave you into submission.
Where's the justice?

$6-10k most likely. It all depends on the excavations needed and if the wall is to be included and size of it etc, You would need to get someone to come out and look at…
