Vanities and BIR sliding mirrors installed

Today we had vanities and sliding mirror doors fitted to our BIR's. The house is really starting to take shape on the inside with things being fitted out.
We have been in discussions with our builder about our ducting from rangehood to outside the house. The builder was just going to duct it to the roofspace until I pointed out in the contract that they must either vent it externally or the rangehood must be a recirculation one. The rangehood I have chosen is a ducted one (not a recirc) so therefore it must be vented to outside the house. This wasn't explained though during the tender meeting and now the builder is interpreting the wording of the contract to suit themselves in an attempt to get out of it.
They see it like this: because the location of the external vent was not nominated on the plan, they are not entitled to include it. However, it's pretty clear in the contract that it is.
Fitoffs and final clean is booked in for next week. Very exciting! All that's left is porch celing with downlights, final render, wood staining, fitoff, shower screens, flyscreens, maintenance, gas meter, hot water system and inspections and that it! Not long now.
