Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the operations and maintenance contractor at 916-498-5360. 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.

Miscellaneous Topics

Occupant Emergency Plan: As the lead tenant in this building, the Bureau of Reclamation is responsible for creating and updating the Occupant Emergency Plan. Please take time to become familiar with it, and participate in Building Security Committee meetings.

Displays: Please do not post or display any material outside tenant space without first contacting the Property Manager at 916-498-5665. Displays may be posted in the cafe, but again, please contact the Property Manager prior to taking any action.

Personal Property: Please do not put surplus items in building common space (i.e., corridors, elevators, loading dock, etc.). Doing so may impede egress should the building need to be evacuated. GSA will be glad to advise you about excessing surplus property.

Loading Dock: The loading dock is open from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Scheduling the use of the loading dock for deliveries, moves, etc., can be arranged through the security desk at 916-498-5666. A guard must be present at all times while basement doors are open, so it is imperative that security or the on-site maintenance contractor be informed at least 24 hours advance to make these arrangements.

If a vehicle(s) will be at the dock for more than one hour, it must be attended in the event it needs to be moved for other deliveries/services.

Recycling: Tenants are encouraged to take advantage of the building-wide recycling program, which includes paper, glass bottles and jars, metal cans, plastic containers and cardboard. Any questions regarding recycling, please contact the GSA Property Manager at 916-498-5665.
