Most buildings are expected to have an indefinite life, exceeding 50 years. This means that the building or structure consented is permanent. Some buildings are intended to have a specified lifespan of less than 50 years.
You can request an extension for the specified intended life for these buildings.
Request an extension of life
The building owner may request an extension to the stated specified life.
We will need to be reasonably satisfied that the building can continue to satisfactorily perform to the building code for the requested extension period.
The extension should not be confused with any guarantees or service life of building products or durability times stated in documents like the building code or similar. It relates to how long the building or structure is going to be in place and used for.
