Description

This determination arises from the applicants wish to receive a code compliance certificate for the house; however the authority has stated that is not satisfied that the house complies with certain clauses of the Building Code. I take this to indicate that the authority would refuse to issue a code compliance certificate if a formal application was made. The authoritys concerns about the compliance of the building work relate to its weathertightness and durability. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority is correct in the proposed exercise of its powers to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the external envelope of the house (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code. The claddings include the components of the systems (such as the monolithic wall cladding, the windows, the roof cladding and the flashings), as well as the way the components have been installed and work together; 2-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the house.
