We are nearing our PCI For our split-level house. Our perimeter has been backfilled but I just noticed that the footings on the lower level are buried and no longer visible. I just want to know if this is a defect that I can ask the builder to rectify? What is the AU standard for backfilling around the slabs? How do we measure enough backfill?
I have a feeling that the backfill was made to make it very close to the level of my neighbour’s Zero-lot garage. But in effect my footings are buried and so are part of my bricks.
Thank you in advance!

if it is slab on ground it should be kept visible as a termite barrier, is this what you mean?
Yes. I’m just wondering if I can go back to the builder to fix this quoting Au standards or best practice.

The floor slab needs to be perfectly flat for laminated floating floors otherwise they will bend and 'pop' when you walk on them. For tiles it's not so critical.
