Thank you for your enquiry.

 

I am now in a position to respond to your Freedom of Information request.

 

I have enclosed below your original enquiry with the College responses
outlined under each question.

 

Q. It is a legal requirement that you hold valid TM44 Air Conditioning
Assessments if any building has a total of more than 12kw of air
conditioning present. Certificates are valid from 5 years of the issue
date. Have you undertaken a TM44 Air Conditioning Assessments?

The College building was completed in October 2010 at which point the
Final Certificate was issued under the building act 1984.  As the system
was new it is not a requirement to have an inspection undertaken in line
with the condition outlined in your enquiry until the 5^th anniversary of
the issue of the building certification. Please see page 5, bullet point 1
of A Guide to Air Conditioning Inspections (attached).

 

Q. Who is the responsible person for ensuring that your buildings are
surveyed and assessed, please provide the name, address, email address and
telephone number of the responsible person.

The buildings and all associated maintenance, including the issue of
appropriate tests and certification,  are covered as a part of a contract
by an independent FM company.

 

Q. If your TM44 Air Conditioning Assessments Certificates are in place,
what is their expiry date? 

N/A

 

Q. What was the order value of the works placed with the Company which
undertook the work?

Works were undertaken as part of an overall package.

 

Q. Provide a breakdown of the price per building if available.

n/a

 

Q. How many Certificates were produced?

n/a

 

Q. Was the Assessor independent as required under the Regulations?

n/a

 

Q. Name the Assessor organisation.

n/a

 

For your reference and information I have attached a copy of ‘Air
Conditioning Facts’ which outlines the requirement to lodge the reports
with the inspectors accredited scheme but, as of yet, there is currently
no requirement for them to be lodged on the central register operated by
Landmark Information Group.

 

If I can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Thanks

 

Denise
