Well this is a new one on me, new build, very expensive large house, 1 x rfc and radial crammed into in one 20amp rcbo x 2 and multiple circuits in the three 6 amp rcbo's?

Looks like a poor design with no spare ways so have ended up doubling and tripling up at the board

I must admit have done this when adding to an already jammed packed existing board

But on a brand new install it’s just lazy not to go out and buy a bigger board and some more rcbos

Remember a spur can be taken at the origin of the circuit. This would still be one circuit.

As Dusty says though, it seems poor on a new build to have no spare ways from the start.
 
The initial cost is only appreciated when there is a fault in an individual circuit and it only affects the solitary circuit and you haven't lost half the installation until the spark arrives
