This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a 10-year-old addition (the addition) to an existing house because it was not satisfied that this building work complied with the Building Code. The matter to be determined therefore is whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the external envelope of the addition complies with the Clauses E2 External Moisture and B2 Durability of the Building Code. The external envelope includes the cladding, its configuration and components, junctions with other building elements, formed openings and penetrations; 2-Whether the addition complies with the other relevant Building Code Clauses; 3-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
