Site meeting

 The building is all completed and awaiting hand over, before hand over the client wants some poor and incomplete work finished (snagging). A meeting is arranged between client, main contractor and a sub contractor. Site agent, planning supervisor and site safety manager are all in attendance.

A tour is planned of the building to look at relevant defects starting on ground floor. The clients rep points out badly fitting window frames, the site agent makes some notes and the sub contractor goes to the window and shouts
“Green side up”

They move to the first floor and the clients rep points out badly fitted and missing lights, the site agent makes some notes and the sub contractor goes to the window and shouts
“Green side up”

on the 2nd floor more problems are highlighted, radiator leaking, exposed cables, waste and broken window frame, the site agent makes some notes and the sub contractor goes to the window and shouts
“Green side up”

This is too much. The safety manager has to ask. So he says, "Every time you are told a defect tell, you write it down, but then the subbie yells out the window
'Green side up.' What on earth does that mean?"

The sub contractor shakes his head and says, "I have four blokes laying turf around the building."
