Custodial Services: GSA provides cleaning for assigned space equal to commercial cleaning for similar space. The standard services include: vacuuming, sweeping and dusting; emptying trash; servicing restrooms, lobbies, corridors, and other common areas; servicing loading docks and platforms; 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 Maintenance and Service Request line at 415-252-8309. The receptionist will coordinate the request for approval through the GSA Property Management Office.

Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the Maintenance and Service Request line at 415-252-8309. 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 will 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.
