Refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for 8 year-old alterations and additions to a house at 123A Marine Parade, Mount Maunganui
This determination arose from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for 8-year-old alterations and additions to a house, because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The authority's concerns about the compliance of the building work related to its age and to the weathertightness of the building envelope.
The matter to be determined was whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate.
In deciding this, the following were considered:
- Whether the external building envelope of the altered house complied with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code. The building envelope includes the components of the systems (such as the monolithic cladding, the windows, the deck, the roof cladding and the flashings), as well as the way the components have been installed and work together;
- Whether the building elements complied with Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the addition.
