This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for an 8-year-old building. The authority has instead issued a certificate of acceptance that accepts the building's compliance, in full or in part, with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's refusal to issue a code compliance certificate arose because it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code.
Based on the applicant's submission, and in the absence of any submission from the authority, the matters for determination are:
- Whether the monolithic cladding as installed to parts of the walls on the house ('the monolithic cladding') complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture;
- Whether the building complies with the remaining clauses, which are not included in the certificate of acceptance and which are relevant to this house;
- Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
