This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for three 9-year-old buildings because it is not satisfied that they comply with certain clauses of the Building Code. The authority's concerns about the compliance of the buildings relate to their age and weathertightness. The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue code compliance certificates for the buildings. In deciding this, the following must be considered: 1-Whether the external envelopes (the claddings) comply with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code; 2-Whether the elements that make up the building work comply with Building Code Clause B2 Durability, taking into account the age of the three buildings. The building work considered in this determination comprises of three buildings that were constructed and inspected concurrently. Separate building consents were issued for each building on 2 November 2000 as follows: BC 002174 for the main house (the house); BC 002175 for the pool house (the pool house); and BC 002176 for the garage and guest house (the garage/guest house). No information has been received regarding any other building consents issued for the property and this determination is therefore limited to the three buildings covered by the building consents outlined above.
