Energy Efficiency Measures

To reduce the electric bills and your operating expenses, you and your employees may personally assist by monitoring any unnecessary equipment usage. Actions such as ensuring that lights are turned off when leaving for the day and in offices/areas that are not in use; turning off coffee pots, turning off computers, monitors and copiers. Maintaining window blinds in a lowered position, with slats tilted against the sun at 45 degrees from horizontal may seem insignificant, however, when you consider the total office space within Colorado Tower, implementing these simple daily tasks can result in a significant reduction in electrical consumption. Not only does your company benefit from these energy conservation measures, it helps the overall energy and environmental condition of our community.

You too can make a difference!

Hours of Operations

Colorado Tower is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week for building tenants. These hours relate to building access only and not to other services, such as air conditioning and maintenance. Generally, air conditioning operates between 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Should you require extended air conditioning hours, please contact the property management office to obtain access to the on-line HVAC program.

Entrances - Building and Parking

Colorado Tower is served by one project entrance on Colorado Street. A multi-level parking garage serves the building and is also accessed on Colorado Street.

After Hours Access

Located next to the main entrance of the building is a proximity card access reader. Access cards should be utilized after building standard hours as well as all day on weekends and holidays to gain entry to the building.

Each tenant should insure that their employees who are permitted after-hours access have an access card. If guests, clients or delivery personnel arrive at the building (after-hours) without an access card or without prior written notification to Security (from the designated Customer Contact), Security will contact the designated tenant representative to notify them of the person’s arrival. Each customer is responsible for greeting the person and taking them up to their suite. Security is not permitted to grant access to the building or to customer suites.

Should you have a vendor or contractor who will need access to the building after hours, please contact the property management office at least one day in advance to make the necessary arrangements.

Loading Dock/ Deliveries

All deliveries are required to utilize the Loading Dock and Service Elevator. Deliveries are never permitted through the Main Lobby or by utilizing passenger elevators. This includes all FedEx, UPS, US Mail deliveries, office supply companies and any other delivery services being used.

The Loading Dock is equipped with three (3) dock-high bay areas that can accommodate vehicles up to 30’ in length. The dock ceiling height is approximately 25’. Standard 48’ or 53' semi-trucks will be able to pull into the alley adjacent to the loading dock subject to City of Austin regulations. Please notify your delivery companies of these specifications and note that they are responsible for determining the appropriate size truck to make deliveries to the building and/or the City of Austin regulations concerning the alley.

Delivery vehicles are limited to thirty (30) minutes at the Loading Dock. Larger deliveries that take longer than thirty (30) minutes must be scheduled to occur after business hours or on weekends. Please contact Building Management to submit a request.

A Dock Master will be stationed at the loading dock to assist delivery personnel with access to the service elevator during business hours. For after-hours deliveries please contact the Building Management.

For liability reasons, Security is never permitted to accept or sign for packages or deliveries unless your firm has signed a Delivery Acceptance form, available through the management office.
