Messengers must sign in and sign out with the dock officer or at Messenger Center and will only be admitted to tenant suites when authorized by a designated tenant representative. There is a pay phone and a bike rack on the loading dock for messengers to use.
Messengers and delivery companies who need access to the building must go to the Messenger Center located on the 1A level of the building which can be reached through the Loading Dock on 12th Street. There are two full-time security officers who will log-in, deliver and log-out items that come to the building. These items are delivered to tenant suites every 30 minutes between 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday – Friday. The Center is open from 6:00 a.m. – 8:30 p.m., Monday – Friday. The Messenger Center can be reached at (202) 393-0244.
For deliveries after these hours, the security officer will attempt to contact the tenant’s mailroom staff or the individual to whom the delivery is addressed. If neither is available, the delivery will be locked in the Messenger Center/Loading Dock office until the next business day. All deliveries must be made through the loading dock to the service elevators (freight).
