This determination arose from a decision by the authority to refuse to grant a building consent for a proposed house, because it considered it had received insufficient information in the supporting documentation to be satisfied that the proposed house would comply with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's primary concerns related to the weathertightness of the autoclaved aerated concrete panel system proposed for the exterior walls of the house.
The matter to be determined was therefore whether the authority correctly exercised its powers in refusing to issue a building consent.
The determination considered whether the autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) panel system proposed for the exterior walls of this house complied with Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code.
