This determination arises from a decision of the authority to refuse to grant an amendment to a building consent for the substitution of aluminium window and door joinery with uPVC joinery to a partially-constructed house because it is not satisfied that the uPVC joinery will comply with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns relate to the joinery's installation, weathertightness detailing, and durability.
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue an amended building consent for the uPVC joinery. In deciding this, consideration was given to whether the substituted window and door joinery as it is proposed to be installed will comply with Clauses B1 Structure, B2 Durability, and E2 External Moisture of the Building Code.
