The building is fully operational (lighting and HVAC services) from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday excluding federal holidays. Tenants may access the building 24 hours a day/7 days a week including federal holidays unless restricted internally by your agency. An HSPD-12 PIV or CAC card will be required for access at all times.

Federal employees can have their government-issued HSPD-12 PIV or CAC card enrolled in the card reader access control system for the building.

Contract guard service is in place to protect the property and the tenants. Your help is needed; cooperation and awareness will help them do their job. A security guard is on duty at the main security desk in the front lobby 24 hours a day/7 days a week (including holidays). For all emergency or security concerns, or if no guard is available please call FPS Denver Mega Center at 877-437-7411.

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 Room: Located on the second floor across from the elevators there is one joint-use conference room available for tenant use. The conference room seats approximately 25. Please note there is no telephone, internet access or audiovisual equipment available in this room.

The conference room is available for building tenants from 6 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.

Please call the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693 to schedule use.

Building operations

Maintenance and service requests: Please call the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693 during the hours of 6 a.m. to 4 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 6 a.m. to 3 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.

Utility closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the operations and maintenance engineer at 818-988-5205. 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.

Under the conditions above, if you are authorized to perform alterations within your space, you must adhere to all building-specific regulations with respect to contractor access, clearance procedures, and all other conditions governing general access and security controls relative to this building.

For any questions, please call the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693.

Miscellaneous topics

Occupant emergency plan: As the lead tenant in this building, the Defense Contract Audit Agency 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 calling the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693. Displays may be posted in the main lobby, 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 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Scheduling the use of the loading dock for deliveries, moves, etc., can be arranged through the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693 or the lead building engineer, Walter Williams, at 818-988-5205. A guard must be present at all times while basement doors are open, so it is imperative that the GSA or 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.

Deliveries: Deliveries should be made between the hours of 6 a.m. and 3 p.m. Agencies should make arrangements with delivery vendors for forklifts, pallet jacks, dollies or any other needed equipment. The building does not have these for use.

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 call the GSA Property Manager at 310-725-7693.
