I've seen this done plenty of times with those horrible stick on polystyrene light surrounds, but never plasterboard

OOh. Cruel!

 

Just as an aside  -is it just me, or is the lamp a bit askew in the fitting?

It looks a bit wonky.

 

Just need to change it for a new pendant set.

As I said on the other forum (a computer based on FWIW)

 

The correct way to deal with this is to access the rose with a lump hammer, disconnect and fit new pendant set adj. resulting hole and tell the spread he has to come and fix the hole before he gets paid :P

Maybe he's inadvertently hit upon the solution to all those dangerous plastic consumer units?  A bag of multi-finish plaster works out much cheaper than installing a shiny new metal unit..

Needs to be two layers of plasterboard, taped and filled joints, and staggered joints to be considered fire proof.

Isn't 1 layer considered fireproof for 30 minutes?

Yes if correctly installed, joints taped and skimmed with finish plaster.

Thought that's what houses were built too unless build type is non standard.

I have always understood if there's a habitable room above a garage, it has to be 2 layers. That's what we are having to use. Perhaps Scottish building regs are tighter?

2 layers is 60 mins, 1 layer is 30 mins.

And If I remember correctly 90 min is 2 layers BUT with the joists at reduced centres.....i think

Yes Dave you are correct, if habitable above garage then must be double boarded.
