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 basement level there are two joint-use conference rooms available for tenant use: B020/B040 and B110/B120/B130. B020/B040 can be configured to seat 92 theater, 50 classroom and 28 U-shape. Room B110 seats 34 theater, B120 seats 20 classroom, and B130 seats 18 U-shape, and these rooms have full video projection available for use, including audio.

Building Operations

Maintenance & Service Requests: Please contact the GSA main line at 415-625-2755 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 6 a.m. to 6 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 415-625-2755.

Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the operations and maintenance contractor at 415-625-2755. 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 Property Manager at 415-436-7950.

Miscellaneous Topics

Occupant Emergency Plan: As the lead tenant in this building, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services 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 GSA Property Management Office at 415-625-2755. Displays may be posted in the lobby, but again, please contact the GSA Property Management Office prior to taking any action. Displays are subject to removal if approval has not been obtained.

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 6 p.m. Scheduling the use of the loading dock for deliveries, moves, etc., can be arranged through the GSA Property Management Office at 415-625-2755 or the GSA Property Manager at 415-436-7950. 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: To minimize disruption to other occupants, we encourage tenants to arrange large deliveries outside of normal business hours. In the event of after-hour activities, the tenant will be responsible for arranging guard services by contacting the GSA Property Management Office at 415-625-2755 or by emailing to request loading dock access forms and GSA approval.

Moving: In addition to the above, large moves must take place after 3 p.m. or on weekends. Check with the GSA Property Management Office for loading dock height restrictions.

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 Management Office at 415-625-2755.
