7. Board’s Findings

Up one level

After due consideration of the Appellant’s submissions and evidence, and the Registrar’s report, the Board found as follows:

7.1 That the Appellant had not demonstrated to the Board’s satisfaction that he met the requirements of Competency 1 “Comprehend and apply knowledge of the regulatory environment of the building construction industry” necessary to qualify for a Design 2 Building Practitioners’ License.

7.2 That he had not demonstrated to the Board’s satisfaction that he met the requirements of Competency 1 necessary for a Design 1 Building Practitioners’ License. The Board considered that his knowledge of the regulatory environment including provisions of the Building Act 2004, the Building Code, amongst others was lower than the level that it expected.

7.3 That the Appellant had not demonstrated to the Board’s satisfaction that he met the requirements of Competency 5 “Explain the process of construction observation and contract administration”. The Board considered that the Appellant displayed a low level of knowledge about the formation and administration of construction contracts for buildings, particularly of the complexity of Category 2. He did not demonstrate an adequate knowledge of the Construction Contracts Act 2002.

7.4 The Board was not satisfied from the Appellant’s submission that he had an appreciation of the limits of his competency in several areas and was only prepared to work within those.
