  • No tenant shall in any way deface any part of the demised premises or the building of which they are a part. No tenant shall lay linoleum, or other similar floor covering, so that the same shall come in direct contact with the floor of the demised premises, and, if linoleum or other similar floor covering is desired to be used, an interlining of builder’s deadening felt shall be first affixed to the floor, by a paste or other material, soluble in water, the use of cement or other similar adhesive material being expressly prohibited.
  • No bicycles, vehicles or animals of any kind (except seeing eye dogs) shall be brought into or kept in or about the premises; provided, Tenant shall be permitted to bring non-motorized standard bicycles into the demised premises so long as: (i) such bicycles shall only be brought through the freight elevators, (ii) no person shall ride such bicycles in the Building at any time, (iii) all such bicycles shall be stored solely in the demised premises, and (iv) Tenant shall be solely responsible for any and all repairs and/or maintenance arising out of the bringing of such bicycles in to the demised premises.

Each tenant must, upon the termination of his tenancy, restore to the Landlord all keys of stores, offices and toilet rooms, either furnished to, or otherwise procured by, such tenant, and in the event of the loss of any keys so furnished, such tenant shall pay to Landlord the cost thereof.
  • All removals, or the carrying in or out of any safes, freight, furniture or bulky matter of any description must take place during the hours which Landlord or its agent may determine from time to time. Landlord reserves the right to inspect all freight to be brought into the building and to exclude from the building all freight which violates any of these Rules and Regulations or the Lease of which these Rules and Regulations are a part.

For purposes hereof, the term “EMI” shall mean electromagnetic interference, and the term “Excessive EMI” shall mean EMI at a level exceeding thirty (30) milligauss. Tenant, at Tenant’s sole cost and expense, promptly following its receipt of notice from Landlord to the effect that the installation or manner of operation of any equipment by Tenant is causing Excessive EMI in any portion of the building other than the Premises, shall take steps to bring such Excessive EMI below thirty (30) milligauss in a manner that is appropriate, as reasonably determined by Landlord. Tenant shall not install any equipment or operate any equipment in a manner which would result in the electrical voltage and current distortion at the service switchboards of any floor of the building failing to be within the limits stated in IEEE 519.

Landlord and Tenant acknowledge that the parties shall determine whether Tenant is meeting the parameters set forth in this paragraph by obtaining one-third octave band noise measurements in a fully finished tenant space or a fully finished common area that in either case is outside of and adjacent to the demised premises, using a Type I meter (per latest ANSI Standard S1.4) on "Fast" response, at four (4) feet above the finished floor and at least three (3) feet from any vertical surface. Nothing shall be done or permitted in the premises of any tenant which would impair or interfere with the use or enjoyment by any other tenant of any other space in the building.
  • Landlord reserves the right to exclude from the building between the hours of 6:00 P.M. and 8:00 A.M. and at all hours on non-business days all persons who do not present a pass to the building.

  • Replacement of ceiling tiles after they are removed for Tenant by telephone company installers, in both the demised premises and the public corridors, will be charged to Tenant on a per tile basis.

The building’s moving and delivery procedures have been developed to provide an efficient process to deliver or remove large items to or from the building with minimum disturbance to Tenants, and to provide adequate protection to the building, its owners and management. Advanced planning is the key to an efficient and well-orchestrated moving or delivery event. All moves must enter through the 11th Street freight entrance and must use the freight elevator. No moves are permitted to take place through the Lobby.

The Tenant must provide advance notice to the Management Office in writing and submitting a work order to Building Engines to ensure that:

  • Elevators and/or the loading area are properly reserved for your use
  • Security Officers are notified of persons authorized to remove or deliver property
  • Required insurance certificates are compliant and on file
  • Your moving or delivery event does not conflict with another Tenant’s pre-arranged schedule
  • Delivery company and/or mover must follow all Building Rules and Regulations, or they will not be allowed to enter the building.
  • Tenant Name, Suite, and Tenant Contact Name

We know how challenging a move or a coordination for a delivery can be.  Your efforts and cooperation are greatly appreciated. We encourage you to share the above information with your moving company and vendor to enable a seamless experience. 



Normal moving and delivery activities must be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance. For major-moving* events involving more than one elevator load of material, including move-ins, move-outs, must be scheduled a week in advance. A work order, including the below information, must be issued by the Tenant (not by a vendor) into Building Engines: 

  • Date and Time of Move
  • Name of Moving Company and Contact Information
  • Insurance Certificate(s)

NOTE: Scheduling is conducted on a first-come, first-served basis.

*Activity generally defined as comprising of anything that requires the use of the elevator pads and cannot be hand-carried or brought in with the use of a hand truck and is limited to weekends and on weekdays before 7:30 AM and after 4:30 PM.


The purpose of these Rules and Regulations is to inform the Contractors of their responsibility to this property during construction or remodeling of tenant spaces. Construction companies, electricians, plumbers, and personnel providing remodeling or repair services must be approved by the Property Management Office. It should be understood that the General Contractor is totally responsible for the action of its employees and subcontractors, and their compliance with these Rules and Regulations. At all times, General Contractor’s personnel should be aware that this property is not a construction site, but rather an occupied office building and therefore appropriate precautions to protect the property, the tenants, and the business atmosphere must be adhered to.

The Management Office maintains a list of qualified contractors who have performed work in the building and fulfilled the requirements listed below. If you prefer to use a contractor who is not pre-qualified, please contact the Property Management for approval.  The scope of these Rules and Regulations shall include, but not be limited to the following:


Work to be performed by any contractor within the property must be approved and scheduled in advance with Property Management. All contractors must check in with the Building Security on a daily basis.  48-hour notice shall be given for any work request that involves the Fire/Life Safety systems at the property.

All contractors must be licensed in the jurisdiction of the property location to perform their trade work. All required permits must be obtained prior to the start of any work and copies provided to the Property Management Office.

Upon completion, certificates of final approval must be obtained. Duplicates of all such permits, approvals, and certificates must be delivered to the Property Management Office as soon as they become available.


All general contractors and subcontractors must provide a current certificate of insurance evidencing adequate workman’s compensation, general liability, and property damage coverage.


Contractor will provide floor, wall, and ceiling protection from the freight elevator to the entrance of the suite where the work is to take place. The type of protection is to be Masonite, with ends taped together to prevent tripping hazards. Protection will be provided by contractor for the freight elevator doorframe on the floor where the work is to take place. All carpet and elevator protection should be installed prior to the start of demolition or remodeling. Protection shall be maintained in a clean, safe manner and be left in-place throughout the duration of the work. The construction area is to be broom swept and all trash removed at the end of each work shift. Public areas leading to construction areas will be thoroughly cleaned at the end of each work shift at the contractor’s expense. Contractor shall correct and repair any damages at their own cost.

  • Provide their own means of debris storage and removal. Contractor’s dumpster must be placed in the loading dock area with prior written approval from the Property Management Office as to the specific location. Debris must not spill or be left around the dumpster. Contractor is responsible for cleanliness of the area. The Property Management Office reserves the right to require Contractor to remove the dumpster with 24-hour notice.

    Demolition debris can only be removed from the building. The freight elevator must be reserved through the property’s Work Order system. Paint and patching materials shall not be disposed of through the buildings plumbing.
  • Noise and Noxious Odors – Particularly noisy work such as core drilling (or fume producing work such as oil-based painting) must be approved by and coordinated with the Property Management Office and performed before or after business hours. Odor producing work, such as staining of doors, must be approved by and coordinated with the Property Management Office so action can be taken to dissipate fumes, protect/disable the smoke detectors, and arrange for additional security, if necessary. If security is necessary, contractor is to pay for said cost.

    If contractors or subcontractors personnel use radios or other music playing devices, they must be turned down to a level not audible in any occupied or public areas. No loud or obscene language will be tolerated, and violators will be asked to leave the property.


  • Egress and Ingress – All movement of contractors and subcontractor materials will be through the loading dock, service corridors and freight elevator. No passenger elevator(s) are to be used. The freight elevator may be used for small material movement during business hours with prior written approval from the Property Management Office. The loading dock is located 11th Street between Broadway.

    Large material deliveries or debris removal must be approved by and coordinated with the Property Management Office. Access to the property outside of normal business hours must be requested at least 48-hours in advance and receive written approval from Property Management. Delivery or removal of materials that are too large for the freight elevator must be coordinated with Property Management.

The following section will provide more details on the building’s rule and regulations, which we strongly encouraged to be distributed to contractors and any other related parties prior to the commencement of any work. Acknowledgement of and an agreement to the Building Rules and Regulations must be received by the Management Office prior to commencement of any work.


Sustainability Considerations: All renovation and new construction projects of a scope that meets any of the following criteria shall also be required to comply with Columbia’s Sustainable Design & Construction Guidelines, which are available from the Property Management Office.

For projects which do not meet any of the criteria below, tenants are encouraged to implement any sustainable design and construction practices described in the guideline document to the extent that it is practical to do so.

  • New construction (including additions) 10,000 sf or greater.
  • Alterations of 20,000 sf or greater.
  • New, replaced, or relocated mechanical, electrical, or plumbing equipment that serves 20,000 sf or larger.
  • Projects having a new, replaced, and/or relocated, HVAC system with heating equipment size of 480,000 BTU’s or greater, or with a cooling equipment size of 600,000 BTUs or greater.
  • Projects are pursuing LEED, WELL, or other sustainable building certification.



Certificates of insurance are required from certain businesses that make deliveries to or from, provide on-site services, perform moving activities including but not limited to the following:

  • All moving companies delivering furniture to your suite.
  • Telecommunication vendors who will have access to building phone closets or multi-tenant equipment areas.
  • Contractors who provide tenant improvement services that impact building fixtures, mechanical areas, or other equipment. In most cases, such services will be contracted through the Management Office.

The Landlord may require, at its discretion, that a Certificate of Insurance be required in other specific instances.

Standard lease terms provide that each Tenant shall be liable to the Landlord for the acts of its guest and invitees. Therefore, all Tenants should be aware of the potential for liability when considering the selection of vendors and their internal policies with respect to the collection of Certificates of Insurance. In other words, if damage or other liability is caused to the Landlord as a result of a vendor providing services to a Tenant, the Landlord will hold the Tenant responsible. It is to every Tenant’s advantage to ensure that they are adequately protected by the vendors they have selected to serve them. Keep in mind that the Management Office may already have certificates from many businesses on file. Upon request, we will be happy to check our records to determine if one or more of your preferred vendors already have an insurance certificate on file with the building.

It is the responsibility of the Tenant to inform the Management Office of any individual or entity attempting to access the building. It is also the Tenant’s responsibility to inform the Management Office of any planned work or large deliveries being conducted in the building. This is in effort to not only avoid delays or denied access at freight area, but to increase building safety. The Property Management Office will then verify that a valid COI is on file. If there is not a valid COI on file, a COI that is compliant with the building’s requirements will be requested (for COI template and requirements, please refer to the Sample COI). The information will then be communicated to Engineering Staff/Freight Operator to provide access.

Please refer to the Tenant Resources page for a  Sample Certificate of Insurance.
