Security Practices

Security

Card Keys
Access to the building during normal business hours is through the front Lobby doors and sky bridge Lobby entrance.

Do not allow anyone to follow you into the building after business hours. Anyone authorized to enter the building after normal business hours will do so with a programmed card key. If you encounter someone having difficulty gaining entry to the building, do not let them in. Instead, instruct them to contact Security for assistance.

Security guards are not permitted to open office suites without authorization from a Tenant representative.

Elevators
There are six passenger elevators that service the building and parking garage. Elevators #1 (south) and #6 service the Art Institute and Argosy, elevators #2, #3 (central), and #4 (north) service zulily, and elevator #5 services the parking garage via the sky bridge on the second floor.

If you find yourself trapped in a stalled elevator please use the emergency phone located in the elevator, which will put you in immediate contact with the elevator service provider’s Emergency Hotline. They will then be able to dispatch a technician to the site to assist you. If while waiting in an elevator lobby, you become aware of a stalled elevator, please contact Property Management and report the approximate floor location and elevator cab number.

Deliveries
Property Management must be notified in advance if you are expecting an after-hours delivery or service. Delivery or service personnel who arrive after-hours without prior notice will not be granted access to the building.

Deliveries can not be accepted by Property Management staff, Security staff or other vendors. Every effort will be made to contact the proper person for delivery before turning away packages.

Office Access
After-hours visitors, contractors, and vendors will not be allowed access to a Tenant’s premises unless the Tenant representative provides prior notice to the Property Management office at least one business day in advance authorizing the visitor access to the Tenant’s suite and only limited access will be supplied.

To maintain building security, it is important that doors remain locked when employees are working in the evening and on weekends, including when they temporarily leave the suite to go to the restroom or run an errand. This reduces the chance that those working off-hours will leave without re-locking the door.

Security Escort
The Security staff will escort Tenants to any location within a one block radius of the building. To request an escort, please call 206-770-0180.

Suspicious Activity
If you encounter a suspicious person or observe suspicious activity, contact Property Management at 206-770-0180.

Thefts
Report all thefts to Property Management immediately after discovering an item missing. Be sure to report missing items with a high value to the police at 206-625-5011.

Workplace Violence
Contact Property Management to discuss any potential incident of workplace violence or harassment. Call 911 and then notify Security and Property Management in the event of a dangerous situation. Always move away from an aggressor if possible, and remain calm and non-threatening. Never try to overpower the person or make sudden moves, especially if a weapon is involved.
