This determination arises from a dispute about whether the fire safety design for a new warehouse and attached office block (the building) complies with the C Clauses of the Building Code.
There have been a number of amended fire safety designs for the building, and therefore compliance with the C Clauses of the original fire safety design and the latest fire safety design has been considered. The relevant Building Code Clauses are C2 Means of escape, C3 Spread of fire, and C4 Structural stability during fire.
The matters for determination are:
- whether the original fire safety design for the building complies with Building Code Clauses C2, C3, and C4; and
- whether the third amended fire safety design for the building complies with Building Code Clauses C2, C3, and C4.
