Description

The matter before the Authority is whether a building consent should be issued for the alteration of a rest home and hospital involving:

  • (a) The addition of a new rest home wing consisting of a central group of rooms including a kitchen, dining room and lounge, and three 'suites' of up to 11 bedrooms and associated sanitary facilities. The 'suites' are separated from each other and the central group of rooms by fire rated construction with full-height, but not fire rated, separation between the bedrooms and common spaces within each 'suite'; and
  • (b) The upgrading of the active fire protection systems in the existing building but with no upgrading of the passive fire protection measures, and in particular upgrading existing doors and adding new ones.

The word 'suite' has been put in inverted commas above because one of the matters of dispute is whether they are in fact 'suites' as that word is used in Approved Document C3 Acceptable Solution 1 ('C3/AS1').
