Certificate of acceptance and code compliance resolution

A Code of Compliance Certificate (CCC) is a report that is issued by the Council upon completion of a building and ensures the development has been built to what was consented prior to construction. For unconsented building work, a Certificate of Acceptance (CoA) provides a limited assurance that Council is satisfied, on reasonable grounds, that unconsented building work complies with the current New Zealand Building Code. At Kaizon we have experience of supporting our Clients through both processes.

Weathertightness matters

The ability for the external envelope of a building to perform satisfactorily is often compromised because of design issues and problems around installing materials.

Once water or moisture gets behind certain cladding types, and if there is no drainage and ventilation between the cladding and the framework, the water becomes trapped and the potential for fungal growth and rotting rapidly increases. There are many issues with having a leaky home, including the effect it may have on your health or your finances if the damage gets worse.

Timber decay analysis and advice

Typically, when you are replacing an external cladding system to your property, Council will require you to obtain the services of a Building Surveyor to ascertain the extent of damage to the timber framework beneath in order to satisfy themselves that all decayed timber has been removed and any remaining timber will be correctly treated.
