I recognise that F/A panel in the top pic, we used to have them over here in New Zealand a while back.
They don't comply here either now.
In the 3rd picture, is that the Mains feed coming in through the top of the panel just below that Fused Spur?.
I'd be interested to know if there is actually a bushing in the hole where the wires come through, because from here it doesn't look like it.
Is it my eyesight or has that add-on PC board in the middle of the Main board been over-heating at some stage?.
Man, that SWA wiring is rough!.
I'd hate to see them Boards after a decent fault, with the un-supported cables moving, they could pull the boards off of the wall.
In the last picture, what exactly is holding that board up?
I see what looks like Nylon string?
not the safest place, but thats what you get if you dont use an electrician and just let the GC`s play with it!
Britspark, I would have to agree, this must be an International thing, because for some odd reason, some GC's seem to think that the term "General Contractor" means that they have some sort of Divine right to muck around with anything on-site that takes thier fancy.
Considering that their most commonly used tools are hammers and Nail-guns, gives some idea as to the amount of intelligence we're dealing with here.
Final note, is that Fire-Rated Plasterboard in that picture?.
