This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for 13-year-old alterations to a building because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's primary concerns about the compliance of the alterations related to its age and to the weathertightness of the cladding.
The matter to be determined was whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for the building work.
In deciding this matter, it was considered:
- Whether the external claddings to the building complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code;
- Whether the building elements complied with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the alterations.
