2012/007: The compliance of tiled decks to three proposed buildings in a retirement village
- Valid from
The matters to be determined are whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to amend building consents for Block H and Block I to allow direct tiling of deck membranes; and whether the same tiled membrane system proposed for the decks to Block G will comply with the Building Code. In deciding this matter, it must be considered whether the tiled decks as proposed for Blocks G to I (the decks) will comply with Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code. The decks include the components of the systems (such as the concrete substrate, the deck membrane, the tile adhesive and the tiles) as well as the way the components have been installed and work together. No evidence relating to a dispute about other matters has been received related to this development and the architect has restricted the application to the direct tiling of decks in Block G to I. This determination is therefore limited to the weathertightness and durability of the subject deck floors.
