This is a Determination under Part 3 Sub part 1 of the Building Act 2004, made on behalf of the Chief Executive of the Department of Building and Housing.
The applicant is the owner and the other party is the Auckland City Council.
The application arises from the refusal by the territorial authority to issue a code compliance certificate for a 10-year-old house unless changes are made to its monolithic cladding systems, to the fire rating of some walls, and unless a handrail is installed to a stairway.
The question to be determined is whether:
- a) The monolithic wall cladding as installed to the external walls of the house, complies with the Building Code;
- b) The walls and doors separating three different occupancies within the building are fire rated in accordance with the provisions of the Building Code; and
- c) A safety barrier, which complies with the Building Code, is required for a staircase to a deck.
