This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 5-year-old building, because the building is part of a multi-unit development and it is not satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The refusal arose because:
- the building ('Block A') is one out of 20 blocks in the development constructed under a single building consent, and
- the building work had been undertaken under the supervision of building certifiers under the former Building Act 1991 which ceased operating as certifiers before issuing a code compliance certificate.
The matters for determination are:
- Whether the claddings as installed comply with Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture;
- Whether certain building elements in Block A, other than the claddings, comply with the other relevant clauses of the Building Code;
- Whether the authority, in response to the applicants request, could amend the single building consent for the development, which includes Block A, so that Block A has its own separate building consent.
