Hi, we have just completed our brickwork and I am not satisfied with the alfresco area. In the plans we had the column sitting on the slab but as the pic below shows some of it is sitting on the edge. I have mentioned it to supervisor and he said we will be doing a thorough inspection in a few weeks.

shuru81 you are entitled to recieve exactly what was detailed and agreed on on your contract plan. This error simply needs to be fixed, and any design and construction dependencies addressed appropriately. Please note, it is not the site supervisors' job to check for conformance to plan or quality of workmanship, despite what he wants you to think. His job is primarily to keep the construction project moving and your progress payments coming therefore he will tell you anything to achieve this. Unfortunately checking the works is your responsibility. Make sure every correspondence about this issue is documented in writing in case you experience avoidance, push back or other tactics. Keep them honest by sharing your experiences about this issue with other members here. Don't be persuaded to keep this private.

Thanks so much! I assumed site supervisor would check things. But we have an independent company who will come and check thing prelining stage.
I will wait till we do the walk through to raise it.
It’s quite disappointing but I will follow it up.
