Staged new building progress inspections
Here we have a high pressure copper water pipe which should be fixed to the centre of the stud NOT on the edge for the possibility of a screw to penetrate the pipe. This may not leak or show up in a water pressure test but a few years down the track once pipe or screw corrode there will be a major issue to rectify.

Once trades had closed in all walls you would have never known that this extemely important item had been missed.
