2010/108: Refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6 year-old building
- Valid from
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 6-year-old building because the building work had been undertaken under the supervision of Nationwide Building Certifiers (the building certifier), which was duly registered as a building certifier under the former Building Act 1991, but which ceased operating as a building certifier before it had issued a code compliance certificate for the building. The authority stated it could not be satisfied that the building work complies with certain clauses of the Building Code. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, it must be considered: 1-Whether the external envelope of the building complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code; 2-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with the Building Code clauses relevant to this building; 3-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the building. The building is connected by a new covered walkway to an existing office building. This determination considers the walkway structure and where wall and roof areas form junctions with the office building, but does not consider the existing office building itself.
