This determination arose from the refusal of the authority to issue a code compliance certificate for the construction of a 10-year old house to which remedial work to the cladding had been completed under two subsequent consents.
The authority was not satisfied that the building work in the original house complied with certain clauses of the Building Code.
The matter for determination was whether the authority was correct in its decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate in respect of building consents BC 61653 and BC 79914.
In making this determination the following were considered:
- Whether the original house complied with Building Code Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture and whether the recladding to the 2nd floor tiled deck and targeted repairs to monolithic cladding complied with Building Code Clauses B2 Durability and E2 External Moisture;
- Whether the original building consent should be modified to exclude the work carried out in the two later consents (the re-cladding work and remedial work) and for the date from when the durability requirements should commence.
