Joint Use/Shared Services

Standard services are commonly included as part of the rent charged by GSA as documented in the Occupancy Agreement.

Examples include after-hours lighting, special or after-hours cleaning, office space carpet cleaning, uninterruptible power services, and non-standard trash removal.

Building Operations

Maintenance & Service Requests: Please contact the GSA Property Management Office at 775-784-5447 during the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4 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 7:30 a.m. to 4 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; and window washing. 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 775-784-5447.

Utility Closets: Tenant and tenant vendor access to electrical and telephone closets can be obtained by contacting the GSA Property Management Office at 775-784-5447. 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.

Miscellaneous Topics

Occupant Emergency Plan: As the lead tenant in this building, the Bureau of Reclamation 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 Manager at 775-784-5449. Displays may be posted in the lobby, but again, please contact the GSA Property Management Office prior to taking any action.

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 available for use during normal business hours. Scheduling the use of the loading dock for deliveries, moves, etc., can be arranged through the GSA Property Management Office at 775-784-5447.

Deliveries: Before scheduling delivery of non-standard items that may be too heavy or too tall to maneuver within the building, please call the GSA Property Management Office to verify size and weight limits.
