Common mistakes found during a pre pour inspection
The widened beam running down the length of this slab under the Laundry/Study wall has been wrongly installed in the second internal rib in from the right hand side, instead of the third one, and as a result is not bearing over the installed screw piles.
The additional N12 bars around the external rib have not been lapped at any of the corners correctly.
