Each of the 37 technical building code clauses has an associated document containing technical solutions called Compliance Documents which contain Acceptable Solutions and Verification Methods.  If building work is carried out in accordance with a Compliance Document the work is deemed to comply with the building code.

For example building code clause E2 External Moisture has a comprehensive set of construction details for installing external cladding and roofing of a variety of different types.  These construction details are what designers commonly use to design building work because the details are automatically accepted by councils and other building consent authorities as evidence of building code compliance.
