Building Access for Tenants, Visitors & Vendors/Contractors

Watt Plaza is considered an “open” building Monday through Friday from 6:00 a.m. to 6:59 p.m. The term “open” in this case refers to our security policy that allows tenants & visitors to gain access to the building, building elevators, and unsecured floors without checking-in with Building Security. This policy does not apply to vendors; all vendors need to check-in with Building Security. Please see the “After-Hours” periods for building entrances, elevators, and suite access below:

“After-Hours” Periods for Building Elevators and Entrances

During these time periods, all building entrances are locked and secured. Building Access Cards are required to access building entrances and building floors via elevator.

Building Security will furnish an “After-Hours Suite Access Approval” form for completion and signature.

Tenant “After-Hours” Access

  • Tenant contacts should maintain current “Tenant Information Sheets” with the Building Management Office in order to avoid delays or possible denial of after-hours building access.
  • Tenant’s requesting access to the building during the “after-hours” period must be listed on the “Employee Access Authorization List".
  • Building Security will refer to the “Employee Access Authorization List” should the Tenant not have a Building Access Card. 
  • If the employee is not listed on the “Employee Access Authorization List” and the employee has not been granted authorized after-hours suite access in writing prior to the floor access request, Building Security will process the employee as a visitor (valid photo ID is required) and attempt to obtain authorization by calling the Authorized Suite Contact. 
  • Building Security will require an authorized Tenant representative possessing a valid access card and identification to come to the Security Desk, sign for the employee and escort the guest to the suite. 
  • Tenant will be fully responsible for the employee/visitor.
  • Access will be denied if Building Security is unable to reach the Tenant Contact by telephone to obtain approval.
