Description

This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a two-year-old house because it was not satisfied that the building complies with certain clauses of the Building Code (Schedule 1, Building Regulations 1992).

Based on the evidence, the matters for determination are:

  1. Whether the stud spacing used on the house is sufficient to ensure that the cladding complies with the Building Code;
  2. Whether the base coat and fibre reinforcing mesh component ('base plaster') of the Sto Therm cladding system has been installed to comply with the relevant clauses of the Building Code.

The authority considered this has not been satisfactorily inspected because Inspection 6 'Render/Base coat and fibreglass reinforcing mesh' was not completed, as required in the building consent. The authority has raised no matters relating to other elements in the building, other than compliance with B2 'Durability', and therefore limited this determination to the matter of the stud spacing and the matter of the missed inspection of the base plaster.
