Not a clue mate but there’s some right m2 on there and tbf what I’ve seen that’s been done looks decent, it could be a big eco funded job as there’s loads of outside wall lis and could be on electric heaters which stacks up for mega money

In English Helen he's asking you to put a straight edge on your wall, and post a picture of how out of level the wall is

Helen, why did you not stop the rendering after the first wall ?

When you say distorted reveals do you mean small or not straight? Someone said it was going to be different to top coat it again due to no tolerance with the window reveals - it’s more obvious at the back I think

Unfortunately plastering is often a compromise , especially on old buildings, started by brickwork not straight , now throw in a window fitter who , with his 6 job fitting experience , does the best he can. It looks ok and he gets paid and dissapears . The plasterer now has to try to keep reveals looking parallel to the render , the windows are most certainly not parallel to the overall wall finish so the render has to distort if you want to keep the reveals perfect so a straight edge at 45° across the render at the corners of windows and doors is not always flat Deeper the reveals the easier to get it flat as reveals won't show 5/10 mm differential .
That said your spread is not a plasterer , as I said before, if you get your money back and want a quick fix then remove the lights , scrape bumps , fill divots , flick with Tyrolean , don't forget to sue the builder for allowing the damage done, not to be nasty but to protect future customers from him
