At 1601 Wewatta, all deliveries are made to the loading dock area with entry from the Wewatta Street side. Goods are then transported to tenant space using the freight elevator unless other arrangements are made through the Property Management Office. The loading dock exit is located on Chestnut Place. The loading dock does not co-mingle with the parking garage. This practice is important because it:
- Maintains the professional image of the building by keeping the front entry clear of delivery traffic
- Limits the wear and tear caused by deliveries to one location
- Keeps the Fire Lane in front of the building clear to comply with fire codes
Loading Dock Clearance: The loading dock clearance is level is 12'2", so delivery vehicles must be under that height to safely enter without causing any damage.
The loading dock is secured at all times by an overhead coiling door. All deliveries must check in with Security by pressing the call button at the entrance to the loading dock.
Signs are placed on the property to direct deliveries to these entrances and tenants are asked to communicate these instructions to their delivery vendors and personnel.
Both large and small deliveries (such as courier service, office supplies, water delivery, etc.) are expected to use the loading dock and freight elevator.
For large deliveries, such as furniture, equipment or a large quantity of supplies, arrangements must be made at least 48 hours in advance with Property Management. Deliveries must be scheduled outside normal business hours and must be supervised by a tenant representative.
