​Visitors and Deliveries

Visitors and Deliveries

Entry and identification are controlled by an electronic visitor pass system. Monday to Friday 7.00am - 7.00pm. Upon arrival, your visitor should go to the main reception where they will be issued with a site pass. Please notify reception in advance of guests arriving so the passes can be pre-printed and your guests will not be delayed.  Should you have your own visitors sytem in place, please advise reception.

Out of hours access requires the use of an access fob or use of the entry system located on the totem at the main entrance. The security staff can either help as required.

Couriers / Deliveries

The reception staff and night security staff cannot sign for tenant deliveries. 

All couriers will be directed to the relevant tenant and all large deliveries should be made via the goods lift.  Alternatively deliveries can be made to the post room where they will be signed and scanned by the security guard and put away in a secured cage (one cage per tenant). Once the barcode on the parcel is scanned and the parcel details entered into the system, an automatic email will be generated and sent to the provided email address. When collecting the parcel, it will be scanned out and a tenant's signature will be required.

Please do not bring trolleys into the main reception area or into the passenger lifts.

Sustainability is very important for our business.  Although we always seek to design and deliver buildings which are sustainable and efficient to run, rigorous management is still required in order to maximise performance and deliver the potential savings of which the buildings are capable.  Coupled with this we believe it is important to engage proactively with you, our tenants to assist in helping you to operate your spaces as efficiently as possible, thereby making our management efforts even more effective.

To help with this we have included various pieces of information which you might find useful.  These range from Green Travel Plans for your building, information on Green Forums and how to get involved through to cycle maintenance programmes and facilities.
