This determination arose from a dispute about the authoritys decision to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate for a refurbished block of classrooms.
The authority was not satisfied that the external door handles installed in the building complied with Clause D1 of the Building Code.
The authority's concerns primarily related to clause D1.1(a) of the Building Code, that is, to safeguard people from injury during movement into, within and out of buildings. Therefore, the matter determined was whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue the code compliance certificate for the refurbished classroom block.
