Regarding the refusal to issue a code compliance certificate for 16 to 18 year-old alterations to a house at 60 Nevay Road, Wellington
This determination arises from the decision of the authority to refuse to issue code compliance certificate for 16 to 18-year-old alterations to a house because it was not satisfied that the building work complied with certain clauses of the Building Code (First Schedule, Building Regulations 1992).
The matter to be determined is therefore whether the authority was correct to refuse to issue a code compliance certificate. In deciding this, I must consider whether the external building envelope of the alterations complies with Clause B2 Durability and Clause E2 External Moisture of the Building Code, and whether the remaining unresolved items which relate to other clauses of the Building Code also comply. The building envelope includes the components of the systems (such as the wall claddings, the windows, the roof cladding, the decks and the flashings), as well as the way the components have been installed and work together.
