Well it\'s in the bible - 5.6.2.5

Maybe you can find a position where the reinforcing can be exposed again so you can connect to it. Under the shower tray for example. Then mortar to cover it again.

or tell the builder and the owner that you cant get the house connected until it\'s done, and make it his problem to give you a connection point.
