This is a determination of a dispute referred to the Chief Executive of the Department of Building and Housing under section 17 of the Building Act 1991 as amended by section 424 of the Building Act 2004.
The applicant is the owner, and the other party is the Franklin District Council. Both the builder and the designer were designated as persons with a right or obligation, as defined in section 16(e) of the Act.
The application arises from the refusal by the territorial authority to issue a code compliance certificate for an 8-year-old house, unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding system. This determination considers whether reasonable grounds that the external monolithic wall cladding as installed on the timber framed first and second floor external walls, the gables and the columns of the house, complies with the building code.
