This determination arises from the decision of the territorial authority to issue a notice to fix for 12-year-old alterations and additions to a house ('the extension') because it was not satisfied that it complied with the Building Code.
The matters for determination are:
- (a) whether the claddings as installed to the walls and roof of the extension comply with Clauses B2 and E2 (see sections 177 and 188 of the Act).
- (b) Whether certain building elements in the extension, other than the claddings, comply with the relevant clauses of the Building Code.
- (c) Whether the building elements in the extension comply with Clause B2 'Durability' of the Building Code, taking into account the age of the building work.
