This determination arises from the applicants' concerns around building work that was completed on the foundations of their house in order to repair earthquake damage. The applicants believe that a building consent should have been issued for the repair work before it was completed, and that the subsequent repairs have not been properly carried out and have increased the likelihood that their house will be subject to flooding.
The matters for determination are:
- whether the finished floor level complies with Clause E1 of the Building Code to the extent required by the Act;
- whether the repaired house piles comply with Clause B1 ? Structure and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code to the extent required by the Act.
