Best thing, is to have the installing contractor come out and fix it.
You paid them for a working system.

Are there balancing dampers in the supplies.

Balance diffusers

I would try closing most of the down stairs diffussers in the cooling season to force more air upstairs and I would check the new work to be sure you have enough air supply and returns to the upstairs.

Milord, methinks it is closed dampers; it's not always easy to tell what is open or closed from the handle.
