2005/51: Refusal of a code compliance certificate for a building with a 'monolithic' cladding system: House 43
- Valid from
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 building owner and the other party is the territorial authority.
The application arises from the refusal by the territorial authority to issue a code compliance certificate for 2 year-old alterations to a 35 to 40-year old house unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding systems.
The question to be determined is whether on reasonable grounds the monolithic wall cladding as installed to the timber-framed external walls and columns of the house, complies with the building code.
