Joint Use/Shared Services

Standard services are commonly included as part of the rent charged by GSA as documented in the Occupancy Agreement. Reimbursable services are normally excluded from the rent and are funded through a Reimbursable Work Authorization (RWA). Examples include after-hours lighting, special or after-hours cleaning, office space carpet cleaning, uninterruptible power services, and non-standard trash removal.

Conference Rooms: Located on the first and fourth floors in Suites 167 and 484 there are two joint-use conference rooms available for tenant use. Conference Room 167 seats approximately 20 occupants. Conference Room 484 is more of an executive meeting room with a large conference table that seats up to 15 comfortably and with space around the perimeter of the room for additional seating. There is a conference phone on the table and a flat screen TV mounted on the wall. Easels can be provided upon request.

The conference rooms are available for building tenants from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday excluding federal holidays on a first-come, first-served reservation basis at no cost. Room use outside these hours is possible through special arrangements with the GSA Property Manager and payment of overtime utility and security costs.

Building Operations

Maintenance & Service Requests: Please contact the GSA main line at 916-930-2122 during the hours of 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays, for janitorial, HVAC, elevator, lighting, or any other service provided by GSA in our building. A mechanic is on duty from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Custodial Services: GSA provides cleaning for assigned space equal to commercial cleaning for similar space. The following services are standard: vacuuming, sweeping and dusting; emptying trash; servicing restrooms, lobbies, corridors, and other common areas; servicing loading docks and platforms; washing windows; and pest control. Carpet spot removal can be done on an as-needed basis. Overall shampooing is done as a reimbursable service and should take place on a regular basis to preserve the appearance and condition of the carpet.

Lighting/HVAC: Ten hours of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and lighting are provided at no additional cost during normal duty hours. Additional service outside this timeframe is available on a reimbursable basis with advanced notice to the GSA Property Management Office at 916-930-2120.

Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the operations and maintenance contractor at 916-825-7527. Please do not install equipment in these closets without first contacting the GSA Property Management Office.

Tenant Controlled Space Alteration: Space alterations should not be performed without first contacting the GSA Property Manager. GSA can provide alteration solutions to meet your needs. Alteration projects are normally funded through a Reimbursable Work Authorization (RWA). Also, it is building policy that work that might disrupt building tenants (e.g. paint fumes, construction noise, etc.) be accomplished after standard building operating hours.
