This determination arises from the applicant's concerns that the roof does not comply with Clauses B1 Structure and E2 External moisture of the Building Code and that it does not comply with the building consent. In respect of those matters the applicant is of the view that the code compliance certificate should not have been issued. The matters to be determined are therefore: 1-whether the roof as constructed complies with Building Code Clauses B1 Structure, E2 External moisture and B2 Durability. For the purposes of this determination the roof includes the roof structure, the roof cladding, gutters and the associated components.; 2-whether the under-slab damp proof membrane as installed complies with Clauses E2 External moisture and B2 Durability; 3-whether the support pillar complies with Clause B1; 4-whether the code compliance certificate was correctly issued in accordance with section 94(1)(a), in that the roof had been built in accordance the approved building consent. The issue of the code compliance certificate in regards to the compliance of a timber retaining wall built under the same consent is also the subject of Determination 2013/006.
