LVT flooring gaps.

HU-968103339
last month

I have an LVT glue down floor that was laid in a newbuild house in March prior to completion. The subfloor is a concrete slab that was laid almost 12 months ago.
Amongst other fitting issues including a number if scratches and bad cuts. The LVT has visible joins in a number of places (mainly end to end rarther than lengthways) , large enough to put a piece of paper in the gap. The contractor is insisting that this is acceptable and a gap between planks of up to 0.75mm is an accepted industry standard and that equals a credit card fitting in the gap. Is this correct and are these gaps likely to get worse in winter?
