E Moisture provides for building to manage water. It contains Building Code clauses E1 Surface water, E2 External moisture and E3 Internal moisture.
The provisions ensure conditions for healthy, safe and durable buildings. They protect people and other property from the adverse effects of surface water, from penetration by water, and the accumulation of moisture from both the outside and inside. Adverse effects, for example, include undue dampness, damage or degradation to building elements, condensation, or fungal growth.
