Policies and Procedures: Dock and Freight Elevator Requirements
The following dock and freight elevator rules must be adhered to by all companies accessing our property. Our staff will ask any company that can’t abide by these rules to leave the property.

  1. The dock cannot admit trucks over 12 feet 2” high. Access to the dock is off 12th Street between Jefferson and MLK Jr. Way on the left. Due to the limited number of parking spaces, the dock is only used for loading and unloading. Please make sure your team understands these spaces can’t be used as a place to simply park a vehicle for the day.
  2. If you require dock access, it should be scheduled 48 hours in advance through the Building Management Office. To obtain dock clearance, the company you are doing work for must call our office and have you placed on our daily access list. All loading and unloading for major moves must be scheduled with the Building Management Office.

  4. Access to the Building is limited to the freight elevator. THE FREIGHT ELEVATOR IS NEVER RESERVED FOR EXCLUSIVE USE. It must be shared with other parties as needed. If multiple moves are scheduled, we will work with the different companies involved have a schedule in place allowing everyone to complete their project as quickly as possible.
  5. You must leave room for others to get on and off the elevator as needed. If multiple parties are using the freight elevator, you cannot take up more than 1/2 of the freight elevator at any given time. In the evenings Monday through Friday you will be sharing the freight elevator with our janitorial crew.
