BUILDING SYSTEMS & OPERATIONS
201 California features an electronic perimeter access control system monitored by a third-party monitoring system. Outside business hours, tenants have access to the garage(s) and building entrances through the access control system.
BUILDING HOURS & AFTER HOURS
The exterior doors to the building are open from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through Friday, after which time the building is automatically locked by the computerized building access system. The building will also be locked during building-recognized holidays.
ACCESS CARD SYSTEM
Upon your move-in, access cards will be issued which provide building entry after hours.
Your building may be equipped to allow mobile credentials at building access points. Please contact the Property Management Office to inquire about this feature.
Visitors must be entered into Building Engines with their full name prior to arrival at the building. After a visitor has shown his or her photo ID to the lobby desk attendant(s), Security will notify the Tenant’s main contact of their arrival, to confirm if the visitor can be sent up to the Tenant’s premises at that time. Please be sure to enter all dates/times that each visitor will be onsite, as this will help make the process as seamless as possible.
HOURS & CONTACTS
Security services at 201 California are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Security officers assist visitors, monitor access, and prevent solicitors from entering the building. The security console is located at the front lobby desk. Building entrances are secured after business hours and unlocked between 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM Monday through Friday.
GOOD SECURITY PRACTICES
For your safety, we ask that you review and follow our recommended building safety guidelines available at the back of this book. While not exhaustive in scope, the list may be used as an aid in establishing adequate internal security procedures.
WORK ORDER SYSTEM OVERVIEW / SERVICE REQUESTS
201 California uses the Building Engines work order system, which allows tenants to submit work orders, make reservations for the Conference Center, and notify the security console of expected visitors. Building Engines immediately alerts the Property Management Office to an issue and is the preferred way to receive maintenance requests. Building Engines can also be conveniently accessed on our website at 201california.com/tenant-resources/.
Each Tenant is responsible for designating at least two Tenant Administrators to authorize certain types of activities on behalf of the Tenant, including work orders.
Your Property Management Team is dedicated to servicing the needs of each tenant. We encourage you to share your questions, comments, concerns, and complaints with our team, so that we can best respond to ensure we maintain our standard of exceptional service.

In the event of an emergency, a member of the Property Management or Engineering teams can be reached after hours through on-site security.

MAINTENANCE REQUEST PRIORITY LEVELS
All problems/requests are handled on a priority basis and will be responded to as quickly as possible. For any situations that require our immediate attention, please also contact the Property Management Office.
HEATING, VENTILATION, & AIR CONDITIONING (HVAC) SYSTEMS
HOURS OF OPERATION
HVAC services are provided Monday through Friday, from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM. excluding holidays.
After-hours HVAC service can be made available at the Tenant’s expense; however, please keep the following information in mind:
As a reminder, personal heaters of any kind are not permitted anywhere in the building.
INDOOR AIR QUALITY (IAQ)
Indoor environmental quality is a critical component of healthy buildings. Numerous studies have confirmed the effect of the indoor environment on the health and productivity of building occupants. Ventilation, thermal comfort, air quality, and access to daylight and views are all factors which play a role in determining indoor environmental quality.
Your building’s base systems, building common areas, and individual elevator cabs have been equipped with the latest bipolar ionization (BPI) technology. BPI is an air purification system that restores clean air to indoor space by safely emitting both positively and negatively charged particulates that attach to and deactivate harmful substances like bacteria, allergens, smoke, mold, and viruses.
|We regularly test the IAQ of your building to ensure our efforts are achieving an optimal indoor environmental quality for you and your team. For more information on your building’s IAQ, please contact your Property Management Team.|
Common areas are maintained by the Building Janitorial team. Night cleaning is provided as per the scope of work defined in your company’s Lease. Additional porter services are available on request. Invoices for additional service will be sent to your firm following the date of service based upon the current rates.
PORTER HOURS & SERVICES
Day porters are on duty Monday through Friday from 6:30 AM to 2:30 PM to keep the lobbies, corridors, restrooms and building perimeter clean during working hours. If you observe a janitorial problem in any of these areas or otherwise, please call our office so that we may immediately dispatch a day porter.
If you have excess trash from either the move-in or move-out of the building or general “house cleaning”, you may arrange removal of excess trash with the Property Management Office. There is a charge of approximately $60.00 per bin for the janitorial time to remove and dispose of the trash. Please note that arrangements must be made at least 24 hours in advance. In addition, trash must be sorted (compost/recycle/landfill) prior to removal. Additional charges may apply if waste is not sorted correctly.
We recommend that all trash generated as a result of the move be hauled off the property by the moving company during the same time as the move.
The night janitorial crew typically starts at 5:00PM and will reach your office any time from 6:00PM to 11:00PM for their first series of chores. Please be sure that the last person to leave at night locks your office door as it may be an hour or more before the janitorial crew reaches your office. All interior office doors will be left unlocked by janitorial unless otherwise instructed.
If you require cleaning beyond the basic cleaning program (i.e., parquet floors, glass partitions), or have any special cleaning requests (i.e. carpet shampooing, dishwashing, stripping/waxing of vinyl floors, etc.) please contact the Property Management Office. Please note that there may be an additional charge for special services. If you have any janitorial requests or comments, please submit your request by using the Building Engines online work order system.
Please note that the janitorial staff has explicit instruction not to discard anything unless it is in a trash can or recycle bin. Any heavy or unusual trash items must be clearly marked with the word “trash” in order for it to be picked up. Note, we do not dispose of furniture, electronics, or pallets. Be aware that janitors are only instructed to service desktops if papers are stacked neatly. They will not move or disrupt any items on desktops. Please be aware of this policy. If a desk is cluttered, it may not receive the attention it needs.
Moving companies and vendors must remove their boxes and pallets from the premises after deliveries. If you have boxes to be disposed of, please flatten them, stack them within your office space and clearly mark them with “trash”. You can make special arrangements for the disposal of large boxes or large quantities of boxes by contacting the Property Management Office. Please note that additional charges for this service may apply. At no time should boxes, trash or excess materials/equipment of any kind be left in the hallways, lobbies, or any area designated as a fire exit.
GREEN CLEANING POLICIES & PRODUCTS
201 California has a green cleaning policy and plan in place focused on reducing the overall impact of cleaning on health and the environment through a variety of measures, including the use of low-environmental impact cleaning products. For details, please see “Our Green Cleaning Policy” in this Handbook under “Sustainability, Energy Conservation, and Green Services.
Exterior and Interior window cleaning is performed biannually and annually respectively. The Property Management Team will notify all Tenants in advance of the date(s) on which the window cleanings will occur. To protect your office and team’s belongings, we ask that all personal property, boxes, and equipment be moved away from the windows prior to when the window cleaning begins.
GARBAGE & RECYCLING POLICIES & PROCEDURES
The city does not permit any electronic waste in the regular trash flow. Electronic waste includes computers, printers, copiers, telephones, remote controls, etc. An outside vendor must be contacted to pick up e-waste. The Property Management Office can provide contact information for e-waste vendors. Property Management also hosts an e-waste pickup event for all tenants quarterly. Tenants will be able to drop off e-waste at the garage during this event.
PEST CONTROL SERVICE
201 California manages indoor pests in a way that protects human health and the surrounding environment by adhering to the principles of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) system. IPM is a sustainable, science-based, decision-making process that considers the life cycles of pests and the environments in which they thrive to control pest damage with minimal harm to people and the environment. IPM includes preventative measures to avoid the need for extermination while using safe, environmentally friendly pest control practices. Below are a few tips to help do your part:
The building is equipped with five passenger elevators, one shuttle elevator and one freight elevator. Passenger and shuttle elevators are for the exclusive use of people. Carts, dollies, hand trucks, large packages, etc. are not permitted on passenger elevators and must be transported via the freight elevator.
Delivery of all large materials and supplies must be done via the freight elevator. Please note that the freight elevator is restricted to building staff, contractors, delivery companies, and movers; if tenant employees need to move large items, please notify the Property Management Office. Vendors arriving during business hours (7:00 AM – 6:00 PM) are limited to one trip in the service elevator. More information about the service elevator can be found under “Move and Delivery procedures” in this Handbook.
ELEVATOR MALFUNCTION / ENTRAPMENT
All passenger and freight elevators are professionally maintained and are inspected regularly to ensure proper operation and safety. Should you encounter any irregularity or interruption in the operation of the elevators, please note the car number and notify building security or the property management office immediately.
If you become trapped in an elevator –
If Electrical Service Is Interrupted:
If normal electrical service to the building is interrupted, elevator lights will blink, and elevators will stop temporarily. They will then automatically return to the lobby level one-by-one and open doors for you.
Deliveries of packages, supplies, or office equipment requiring the use of dollies or carts should be delivered via the garage ramp, between the hours of 7:00 AM and 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Use of the freight elevator(s) during this time is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that no pallet jacks are allowed in the building.
Any large deliveries (i.e. more than one trip on an elevator or deliveries requiring the use of elevator pads) should be made after hours Monday through Friday, 6:00 PM – 7:00 AM, or by appointment Saturday or Sunday. These deliveries should be coordinated through the Property Management Office.
Building personnel including Engineering and Security are not permitted to accept deliveries of any kind (furniture, supplies, etc.) on your behalf. The Property Management Team cannot be held responsible for deliveries made to the building lobby.
