FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST –  FOI-14-0943

 

 

Dear Sir / Madam,

 

Your request for information has now been considered and the information
requested is given below.

This request follows legal and mandatory legislation under the European
Performance of Buildings Directive and specifically T.M44 AirConditioning
Assesment certification. Your AirConditioning Assesment Certificates
should be readily available at all times and be lodged on the government
Landmark database. Failure to have appropriate Certificates will be
subject to fines of £300 per building, each week.

 

Q. It is a legal requirement that you hold valid AirConditioning
Assesments 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 T.M44 AirConditioning Assesment?

Please see Attachment 2 and refer to page 22 of the PDF guide which
indicates that the reports were created in 2010 (letter of 27 November
2012 as at Attachment 1).

 

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.

Geoff Badger, Building Services Commission Manager, Manor Drive House
Peterborough PE4 7AJ. Tel 01733 384541 email
[1][email address]

 

Q. If your T.M44 Certificates are in place, what is their expiry date? 
The tests will need to be repeated in 2015.

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

I confirm that the council holds this information, however, the
information is considered exempt.  The exemption applied is Section 43 –
commercial interests. This exemption applies because the information
requested is commercially sensitive information. 

The public interest test has been applied, and the public interest in
maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing the
information.  The council understands that there is merit in releasing as
much information as possible in order to assist public understanding of
air conditioning assessment certification and to help the public
understand how public funds are being spent.  In this case, the council
considers that protecting commercial confidentiality ensures that the
council achieves the best terms and value for money, therefore protects
public funds.

 

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

An overall contract prices was given rather than per building (please see
answer above)

 

Q. How many Certificates were produced?

21

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

Yes

Q. Name the Assessor organisation.

 

Our contract was with Adcock and not a specific assessor.   Tel 01733
344300. Email [email address]

 

Q. Do you have ISO 14001 Accreditation

 

No
