The Difficult to Consent course is a structured workshop session aimed to challenge one's own interpretations of regulatory requirements, and encourage open discussion but under rigid course programme for the day. It provides an understanding of the 'Regulatory Triangle' and the interrelationship between Building Act, Building Code, 'must accept' (read 'acceptable') and alternative solutions, and MBIE guidance and determinations. What is deemed a building in the first instance will guide further discussion on New Zealand's regulatory system and how to apply it beyond the normal bounds of typical residential, commercial, and industrial construction. Consideration of boats, vehicles, yurts, and shipping containers, as well as off-site and off-shore prefabrication, modular construction, and transportable buildings construction methodology that challenges our traditionally accepted compliance pathway, all form part of this challenging one day course.
