NZ Asthma Rates - NZ Building Code

Posted by Phil on 9 May 2017 | Comments

It's surprising and disappointing that the poor NZ Building Code does not get mentioned in this article.

The NZ Building Code is a legal minimum standard and should be treated as such. It should not be treated as a target if you want to live in a comfortable and healthy home.
