The matter to be determined is whether the subject deck as constructed complies with the Building Code. In deciding this matter, it must be considered whether the tiled deck as installed on the building (the deck floor) complies with Clause E2 External Moisture and Clause B2 Durability of the Building Code. The deck floor includes the components of the system (such as the membrane, the plywood substrate and the deck tiles) as well as the way the components have been installed and work together. Although the site instruction also listed other items requiring attention, these have been, or are in the process of being resolved between the parties. This determination is limited to the weathertightness of the upper deck to the southwest internal corner.
