Power poles and warranties

Well the building surveyor doesn't seem concerned about the shed easement entry in the planning permission which is good.

Today I saw we have a power pole on the block, however there is as yet no power connected to it, so I presume that is coming.

Also had a call from the concreter today. It seems that the cost of the concreting has increased by $880 +GST due to our requirement for the slab to be poured on top of the strip footings rather than as an infill after the build is almost finished. And the concreter doesn't have warranty insurance as he isn't required to as he is not a registered building practitioner. I'm not in favour of the system in Victoria, there's no requirement for builders to be registered which rather defeats the whole point of registration if you ask me......
