TM 44 Air conditioning certification is only required if the cumulative power rating is greater than 12KW per building and the Town Hall and MSCP units are below that threshold. Therefore no TM 44 assessment has been undertaken.

Brentwood Leisure Trust has air conditioning units in the Brentwood Centre but that is managed by BLT, and an order for the TM44 assessment has been sent to our contractors for this assessment to be carried out.
