Building Security: After Hour Access
Tenants or employees desiring access after normal business hours from 6:00 PM to 7:00 AM, Monday
through Friday, on weekends or on holidays, will be required to possess a valid access card. Tenants or
employees enter the building by means of a proximity access card reader system. These access card
readers are located in designated garage and building entrances, as well as in elevator cabs 1, 2 and 4.
The access cards automatically control the entry doors and elevators. To enter building, wave your access
card over the red light in the reader kiosk located near the doors. If your access card is valid, the light will
turn green and then you can open the doors.
Access card readers located in elevators 1, 2 and 4 restrict access onto any floor other than where your
suite is located. The procedure for use is as follows:
Wave access card in front of the card reader located in front of the elevator panel.
If the access card is valid and the light turns green, press the desired floor button.
You may only access the floor(s) that your access card is programmed for. If you experience any
problems with your card, please contact the Building Office.
Click here for Access Card Request Form
The main entry doors are equipped with handicapped accessible exit buttons. These buttons are located
adjacent to the lobby doors. To exit the building after-hours through these doors, simply press the exit
button and the doors will automatically unlock. The security system is also designed to deactivate all
perimeter door locks and card readers if the building’s fire system is activated at any time.
During after-hours, tenants or employees are required to sign in and sign out at the Lobby Console.
Building staff cannot unlock office suites. Tenants need to have their own keys.
Leaving The Building After-Hours
To exit the building after-hours, on weekends and on holidays all tenants and visitors must go to the Lobby
Console and sign-out. This is critical in the event of an emergency. The response team needs to verify the
occupancy and location of any persons in the building.
Click here for Access Card Request Form
Visitor After-Hours Access
To ensure easy access for visitors to your office during after-hours, 6:00 PM to 7:00 AM, Monday through
Friday, on weekends and on holidays, the following procedures must be followed:
A visitor may access the building after-hours unaccompanied if the tenant has notified the Building
Office in advance. The tenant must provide the visitor’s name, date, time, and suite visiting to the
Building Office prior to 3:00 PM if it is to be effective that evening. Upon arrival, your visitor will be
required to sign-in and the security officer will give them elevator access to your floor.
In the event that prior access has not been coordinated, please contact the Security Console at (310)
319-0109. Advise the officer on duty of your name, company name, the name of your guest and the
anticipated arrival time. Upon arrival, your visitor will be required to sign-in and the security officer will
give them elevator access to your floor.
A Sign-In/Sign-Out register is provided at the Lobby Console. The register must be signed by visitors
and guests to include name, company, time-in and time-out.
Visitor Access Denied
If a visitor requests access to the Building and the Security Officer does not have prior notification from the
Building Office or cannot contact the tenant in question by telephone, the unaccompanied visitor will be
denied entry into the building.

Building Security: Deliveries
One Hundred Wilshire’s passenger elevators were designed solely for transporting building tenants and
their guests to their offices. Therefore, use of the passenger cars to move any objects other than small,
hand-carried parcels is against building regulations. Bicycles are also not permitted in passenger elevators
or in the building.
All shipments and deliveries that require the use of hand-trucks, carts or dollies, including such items as
Federal Express, UPS, bottled water and office machines, must be confined to the freight elevator, which is
available for use by advanced reservation, on a first-come, first-serve basis. Additionally, to control debris
and dust, as well as to prevent tenant inconvenience, all construction crews also are required to use this
elevator for inter-floor transit.
There is a building loading dock and delivery entrance located in the alley on the east side of the building.
Reservations for the loading dock are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.
All deliveries need to access the building using the freight elevator located by the loading dock during
normal business hours: 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The clearance for the Loading Dock
is 20 feet. Please make sure your vendors are aware of this height clearance.
All vendors making after-hour deliveries must sign-in at the Lobby Console before going to their respective
floors. Under no circumstances are deliveries requiring carts or dollies to be made through the passenger
elevators. Resulting damage will be billed back to your company.
In the case of a delivery of furniture, large shipments, etc., please contact the Building Office in advance to
use the freight elevator before or after normal business hours. Use of the freight elevator before-hours,
after-hours, on weekends and on holidays must be approved in advance by the Building Office. One
Hundred Wilshire’s policies for tenant furniture delivery are outlined in the Move-In/Move-Out section of this
Firms involved in moving furniture and equipment must file a Certificate of Insurance with Building
Management before freight elevator service can be scheduled. All new tenants who need freight elevator
access to move-in must schedule through the Building Office.
If your firm uses a courier service that requires entrance into the building after-hours, please have the
courier service sign-in at the Lobby Console. The Security Officer will then call the company receiving the
package to inform them of delivery. If no response is obtained, the courier will be denied access.
You can expedite service by calling the Security Officer in advance when expecting a messenger. Please
be aware that the Security Officers are not authorized to sign for or accept any packages.
Building Security: General Office Security
Security Procedures
In an effort to improve security measures, we have implemented several security procedures that may affect
your employees. Please advise them of the following policies:
On-site security officers do not have keys to tenant suites. They cannot assist anyone in gaining
access to a locked suite.
Lobby doors to the building shall be locked each Monday through Friday at 6:00 PM and unlocked the
following morning at 7:00 AM. On Saturdays, the lobby is unlocked from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM, and on
Sundays and holidays, the lobby doors are locked. No one will be permitted to enter the building
unless they have an active access card.
An active access card will be required to access your floor during hours the building is not normally
open. Security officers are not permitted to assist anyone requesting access to a floor.
In order to provide maximum protection for your personal property, the janitorial personnel have been
given strict instructions NOT to unlock doors for anyone requesting entry to a suite. Their failure to
follow this procedure will result in termination of the janitorial personnel involved. PLEASE DO NOT
Please advise your employees that whenever they leave their office, for any reason during
non-working hours, i.e., to go elsewhere on a floor, to another floor, to the lobby or to the parking
structure, re-entry will require an access card and suite keys.
Lobby Console
Our security officers are also instructed not to accept any type of delivery on behalf of a tenant. Please
ensure that a representative from your firm is present to accept your deliveries. In addition, we do not allow
anyone to leave briefcases, boxes, equipment, etc., at the Lobby Console, even for a short period of time.
The security officer could be called away from the lobby momentarily in an emergency situation, leaving
your personal articles at the Lobby Console unprotected and subject to theft. Your cooperation and that of
your employees concerning the above is greatly appreciated.
General Safety Tips and Security Precautions
Have someone located at the front reception area of your suite (or keep front doors locked).
Report anyone who appears suspicious to the Lobby Console or Building Office.
Report peddlers and solicitors.
Never leave purses or wallets unattended or in visible sight of others.
Take any laptop computers with you at the end of the day, or have them stored securely.
Make sure that the front door is closed and locked when leaving at night. When there is no one in the
office, do not leave the front door unlocked, even for a short time.
General Safety Tips and Security Precautions (continued)
Handbags, coats and other articles of value should not be left unguarded in reception areas, even for
a few minutes. Portable articles, when left on desks or in open drawers are easy targets for an
expert sneak-thief.
Ensure that cash, credit cards, negotiable documents or other valuables are locked away at night.
Do not leave keys or valuables on or in any desk. The keys should also be changed whenever an
employee with access to these areas is terminated.
Special care should be taken during the times best suited for pilferage, the 30 minutes just after
opening, at lunch hours and before closing, when there is a maximum movement of personnel and
absences from work areas or offices.
Occasionally examine wastebasket contents at the end of the day to see if any equipment or other
valuables may have been hidden for later removal. Employee activity is the major cause of losses.
Serial numbers, on all items which have them, should be recorded to aid police in recovering property
in the event of loss or theft.
Be sure to retrieve the building’s security access card from any employee who has left the
employment of your firm. Return these cards to the Building Office so we may deactivate the access
Building Security: Key and Lock Policy
Control over Building keys and coding is one of the most significant parts of our overall security to the
building. In the event you are locked out of your suite during normal business hours, you must contact
someone from your office for access. You may come to the Office of the Building (Suite 290) to use the
phone, however, we are NOT able to allow access for anyone unless we have verbal permission from the
person on the after-hours emergency list, who you should call. This is done for your protection.
If a tenant forgets their key to the office suite or is locked out after-hours, the Building Office will be unable to
assist you. The security officer located at the Lobby Console does not have key access to tenant suite
areas. You will be required to contact someone from your firm.
For each lockset installed, two keys are issued. If additional keys are required, they may be obtained at an
additional cost by completing the Key Request Form. All door hardware installed at One Hundred Wilshire
must be the preselected building standard hardware. Tenants are not permitted to change, modify, or install
any other type of hardware. All rekeying of tenant door locks must be scheduled through the Building Office
and rekeyed to the Building’s Grand Master and Floor Master. Improper coding of keys can jeopardize the
security of your suite and staff.

Building Security: Lost and Found
Lost and Found for the building is located at the Building Office in Suite 290. It will be necessary to present
identification and describe the lost item in order to retrieve lost property.
Building Security: Property Removal
In order to minimize the possibility of theft, and to provide maximum protection for your personal property, a
Property Removal Authorization form is required in order to remove large articles from the building. This
includes any objects such as parcels, boxes, equipment and furniture.
We request that each time you or one of your employees remove materials or equipment from the building,
one of these forms is filled out and presented to the Security Officer on duty at the Lobby Console. The
authorized person signing the Property Removal Authorization Form must be listed on the Tenant Contact
and Authorization Form on file at the Lobby Console. Your cooperation and that of your employees is
appreciated. Failure to produce an authentic, original Property Removal Authorization Form will result in
the denial to remove the property from the premises.
Click here for Property Removal Form and Tenant Contact and Authorization Form
Building Security: Solicitation
Our security officers attempt to prevent undesirable persons, including solicitors, from entering the Building.
We are successful in the majority of cases, but due to the volume of persons entering and exiting the
building, these people may manage to elude our scrutiny.
For your protection, the following procedures are suggested:
In the event a solicitor gains entrance to your suite, ask him or her to have a seat while you contact
your Office Manager. Your office manager should call the Building Office at 319-0100 immediately.
Request building personnel to be dispatched to your suite so that the solicitor may be escorted off the
premises. The solicitor should never be left alone or unobserved while in your suite.
If the solicitor leaves your suite prior to the arrival of the building personnel, please make note of his or
her general description, approximate age and color of clothes, as this information will assist us in
identifying the solicitor.
Building Services: Building Signage and Directory
Touchscreen Directory Screens located in the Main Lobby allow visitors to locate names by company or by
individual. All requests should be submitted on a Touchscreen Directory Form to the Building Office.
Please verify spelling before submitting directory requests. Should you want your company logo to appear
on the directory, an additional charge will be required.
The Building Office will provide an order form prior to your move-in for suite entry door signage and
Touchscreen directory information that must be completed and returned. There is a 3-week lead-time for
fabrication of the signage. Original signage and all changes will be at the tenant's expense and must
conform to building standards. Please see the Tenant Signage Order Form.
Except as otherwise provided in your Lease, no sign, placard, picture, advertisement, name or notice shall
be inscribed, displayed, printed or affixed on or to any part of the outside or inside of the building or
premises. The Building Office reserves the right to remove any such sign without notice and at the tenant's
Building Services: Cleaning
A professional janitorial company provides cleaning services on a contract basis. The cleaning staff starts
their duties at approximately 6:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Dayporter services for common area
maintenance are provided Monday through Friday, 7:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Our janitorial personnel have been instructed upon completion of their nightly duties to ensure all corridor
doors are locked and to leave interior doors as they find them, (i.e., locked or unlocked, open or closed) or
as formally directed by tenants to the Building Office. Janitors are also instructed to turn lights off when
they leave unoccupied offices. Below is a list of the basic services provided in your suite and the appropriate

arrangements will be made at your convenience.
If you should have any above-standard cleaning requirements not covered under the Lease, please contact
the Building Office. We will contact the janitorial contractor and ask them to coordinate with you directly.
The contractor will bill you directly for any work done. See Section III of this manual for more information.
Rubbish, discarded equipment or cardboard boxes must not be stored in elevators, lobbies, corridors or
stairwells for even short periods of time. Doing so is a violation of fire codes and building regulations and
impedes access to exits.
A Recycling Program is in place at One Hundred Wilshire. Our recycling program targets office paper and
corrugated cardboard only. Office paper includes: white paper; envelopes; NCR forms; adding machine
tapes; colored paper; computer paper; plain paper fax; cardboard boxes; junk mail; letterhead; Post-its; and
manila file folders. If you are taking cardboard boxes to the trash area on the loading dock, please make
sure they are “flattened.” Not only does it impact the amount of rubbish allowed in the containers, the waste
company will not pick up the trash if they find unflattened boxes in the containers.
Energy Conservation
Your contribution to energy conservation is appreciated and will help keep building operating costs at a
All lights in your suite or office should be turned off when employees leave for the night or extended periods
of time. Also, please make certain that all office equipment and appliances are turned off before leaving for
the evening. Assign an employee to ensure that all appliances (coffee pots, copy machines, etc.) are off. In
addition to the obvious energy savings, there are safety considerations too, such as malfunctioning office
equipment and appliances (usually left unattended), which represent the greatest danger of office electrical
Through tenant cooperation and assistance, the building is able to conserve energy and keep operating
costs lower.
Building Services: Elevators
A freight elevator is located in the high-rise elevator bank. Hours of operation are 24 hours a day. For
access to the freight elevator after-hours, on weekends and on holidays, please contact the Building Office
for reservation and approval. Movement of major equipment and/or furniture must be scheduled in
advance, and must occur after-hours.
The inside dimensions of the freight elevator cab are 7’ wide by 5’ deep by 8’ high.
The maximum weight capacity of the cab is 4,000 pounds. However, it is your responsibility to ensure that
the cab is not overloaded resulting in damage to the equipment and/or cab finishes. Be sure that your
employees and all vendors providing services to your company are aware of the weight limitation.
Employees and delivery people sometimes fail to realize that a power jack to move pallets and a pallet can
add up to 1,000 additional pounds to the load being transported. Also be aware that improperly balanced
loads can cause damage to the elevator rails and related equipment.
Click here to see the 100 Wilshire Moving Policy for further information.
Installed at One Hundred Wilshire are five passenger elevators servicing the office tower. There are two
additional elevators accessing the parking levels.
Each elevator, including the freight elevator, is equipped with a telephone system that dials directly to the
Building Office. The Building Office will then notify Security and Engineering. If an elevator malfunctions and
you are unable to exit the elevator, pick up the phone located inside the car and it will ring at the Building
Office. While inside the elevator, please remain calm. We will get you out. Under no circumstances are
you to attempt to climb out on top of the cab roof. If normal electrical service to the building is interrupted,
the elevators will stop temporarily. An emergency generator will then return them to the lobby area one by
one and open the doors. Thereafter, three cars in each bank will continue to operate.
Elevator equipment and performance are constantly monitored during regular business hours. Should you
ever experience any irregularity or difficulty with elevator service, please note the elevator car number
(located on the top right hand and left panel) and floor, and report this information immediately to the
Building Office.
The maximum weight capacity of the passenger cabs is 3,000 pounds. Under no circumstances are large
deliveries to be made through the use of these cabs.

Suspicious Packages or Mail Bombs
Letter bombs are usually sent through the mail addressed to a specific individual in the company, usually
disguised to look like some sort of gift or a small package. Letter bombs have the power to kill or maim
anyone close to them if they go off. Letter bombs are usually a large size manila envelope ¼” to ½” thick
and are fairly rigid. They have been mailed from cities or small towns in the United States, as well as from
foreign countries. They are usually mailed to a person by title, such as Chairman, President, Manager,
Security Officer, etc.
If a letter is suspected to be a letter bomb:
Clear everyone out of the area for at least 25 feet around it.
Notify the police at 911 and Building Management at 310-319-0100
Emergency Procedures: Civil Disturbance
Should a riot or civil disturbance start outside the Building, the security guards will immediately lock all
entrances to the building. The police will be notified. We will keep you informed.
If a disturbance should occur in the main lobby, all elevators will be turned off at the first floor and the police
will be summoned.
Emergency Procedures: Earthquake
Before an Earthquake
Plan your course of action before an earthquake occurs. Employees should establish an out of state
telephone contact and make sure family members can act independently for at least 72 hours.
Store essential emergency supplies such as food, water, first-aid kit, radio, and batteries. Enough
supplies should be stored to support every employee for a minimum of 72 hours.
Secure objects such as files, office equipment, bookshelves and other potentially dangerous objects.
Be familiar with your immediate work area and floor plan. This will help you react effectively when it
is necessary to find the closest and safest shelter point.
During an Earthquake
Get under a sturdy table or desk and hold on or move towards the center of the building. The building
core is the strongest part of the structure.
Keep your back to all glass objects if you cannot avoid them completely.
Be aware of falling debris. Cover your head as much as possible.
Do not panic. A clear mind will help you through the dilemma.
After the Earthquake
Remain calm and stay in your area (unless any emergency dictates otherwise).
Look for injured people and administer first aid where needed.
Barricade hazardous areas to prevent other persons from accessing a dangerous area.
Use telephones for emergencies only.
Be alert for after shocks. Their intensity can produce further damage. Respond to the after shock as
though it is the original earthquake.
Check your food and water supplies.
Building Security will attempt to contact tenants via the public address system to advise on building
and local conditions.
Normally, it is not recommended to evacuate a building after an earthquake. Outside one may
experience falling glass from the buildings.
However, if an evacuation is required, use the stairs. Do not use the elevators. Walk down at a
steady pace. Do not run.
If you are outside when an earthquake occurs
Immediately find the safest cover, perhaps an alcove, a doorway, a parking garage or a building.
Stay away from storefront windows. The primary danger is from falling debris, particularly glass.
Stay under cover as after shocks may cause further damage.
Emergency Procedures: Elevator Malfunction
In the event that an elevator stops with passengers in it, remember to remain calm. Open the phone closet
located underneath the elevator buttons. Depress the telephone button and you will be connected to the
Office of the Building or our 24 hour answering service. Look up on the front panels to see what elevator
number you are in so you can tell the person answering the phone. If you can determine what floor you are
stuck on, that is also helpful.
In the event of a power outage, elevators will continue to operate using our emergency power generator.
Should an outage occur, elevator lights will remain on, but the car will temporarily stop. Each elevator will
automatically return to the lobby where the doors will open and they will then be out of service. THIS
All elevators function on a Fireman’s Return Systems, which automatically returns the elevators to the main
floor without stopping when smoke is detected on any floor. IN THE EVENT OF A FIRE, ELEVATORS
Emergency Procedures: Emergency Contacts
Tenant Emergency Contact
The Building Office requests that each tenant provide the necessary information on the Tenant Information
This form will be filed in the Building Office as well as the Lobby Console. In case of an emergency, the
security officer, with prior approval from the Building Office, has the ability to contact a tenant at home for
the purpose of notification. This information is considered confidential, and our security officers will be
instructed accordingly.

Emergency Procedures: Evacuation
If it becomes necessary to evacuate a floor or floors due to a large fire or a great amount of smoke, the
items below are of extreme importance:
Keep calm; do not panic.
Do not attempt to use the passenger or freight elevators. The elevators will be removed from service
or will be rendered inoperable by the building's "Fire/Life/Safety" system or will be under the Fire
Department's control.
Use the exit stairwells. Enter the stairwells and proceed to the ground level - keep to the right of the
stairwell as emergency response teams may be entering the stairwell. The exit stairwells are the
safest evacuation route for all office tower personnel. Remember, in case of fire, and evacuation
becomes necessary, do not attempt to utilize the elevators.
Walk rapidly; do not run.
Before opening any doors, feel the door. If it is hot, do not open it.
If possible, close all doors along the way, as this will slow the spread of the fire.
If you are caught in smoke: Crawl along the floor, as the air is cleaner and cooler and take short
breaths and breathe through your nose. If forced to make a dash through smoke or flames, hold your
Do not go back for personal belongings.
Emergency Procedures: Fire and Life Safety
For a complete Fire and Life Safety training available on -line please click here.
Any person discovering fire or smoke should immediately call 911 (or 9-911 if phone system dictates), and
then proceed in the following manner:
Activate one of the manual fire alarm stations located in the Building. Manual fire alarm stations are
installed on each floor in the elevator lobby areas and adjacent to all fire exit stairwells. The manual
fire alarm stations are operated by pulling the handle down. Once the station is activated, the fire
alarms, located throughout the floor, will sound off notifying other personnel on the floor that a fire
condition exists.
Locate your Floor Warden or Suite Warden. Proceed to a safe stairwell and begin the evacuation
procedures per your Warden's instructions and proceed to a Safe Refuge Area.
Upon arrival, the Fire Department will take charge of extinguishing the fire.
Never consider an alarm as "false", "a malfunction" or "a test" unless previously notified.
For detailed information refer to the Building's Floor Response Team Manual.
Life Safety Systems
Levels include:
P-3: Parking Level
P-2: Parking Level
B-1: Parking Level, Engineering Office, Fire Pump Room
Lobby: Main Entrance, Lobby Console, Tenant Occupancy, Fire Control Room
2 – 21: Tenant Floors
Manual Alarms
Manual alarms are located on each floor near the stairwells and in the elevator lobbies. To operate –
PULL. The fire alarm emits a whooping sound and a flashing light. The alarm sounds on the floor where
the device was activated, at the Fire Control Room and at an outside monitoring company.
In a fully sprinklered modern high-rise building, it is not necessary for the alarm to sound throughout the
building. Alarms sound on the floor above and the floor below. It is most important to remove the people
closest to the fire and not to jam the stairwells. The firefighters will also be using the stairwells to get to the
fire. If the fire or smoke spreads, the Fire Department will evacuate any additional floors.
Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors are located in corridors, elevator lobbies, tenant suites, stairwells, restrooms, electrical
rooms and heating ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) return air ducts. Activation of any smoke
detector will sound the fire alarm.
Sprinklers are located throughout the building. A sprinkler is activated when the fusible metal links melt.
Activation of any sprinkler head will activate the alarm.
Emergency Generator
If normal power fails, an emergency generator automatically provides electricity to stairwells, stairwell exit
signs, and emergency hall and office lighting, lobbies, parking areas, elevators, as well as powering life
safety and communications systems. The emergency generator will power elevators one at a time to the
Lobby Level and the continuous use of one elevator. If it appears that a power failure will last for an
extended period, tenants will be informed by a PA Announcement.
There are two fire stairwells that service the building. These stairwells are located within the building
core area at the Northeast (Stairwell #1) and Southwest (Stairwell #2) corners, behind the elevators.
Please be sure to identify these stairwells so you and your staff will know their locations should a
building evacuation be required. These stairwells are constructed of concrete and have a fire
tolerance of two (2) hours. In addition, these stairwells pressurize in the event of a fire. This ensures
fresh air into the stairwell during an evacuation. Please remember that it is important that these
stairwell doors are never propped open.
These stairwells are designed for emergency purposes only and are not intended for inter-floor
traffic. These stairwells may be entered from floors 2 – 21. Stairwell doors are normally locked from
inside the stairwells for security purposes. During any emergency, the stairwell doors will
automatically unlock to provide for relocation of building occupants. Stairwell telephones are located
on the 5th, 10th, 15th and 20th floors. These telephones are designed to provide emergency
communications should you require assistance during an evacuation.
The building has two stairwells for occupants’ use. Ground floor exits are at the Northeast (Stairwell
#1) and Southwest (Stairwell #2) corners of the building. Stairwell #1 also provides access to the
roof. You should not evacuate to the roof UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO DO SO BY THE FIRE
Upon any alarm condition, the stairwells automatically pressurize. Air is blown into the stairwell to
minimize the chance of smoke entering the stairwell. Due to the pressurization, doors may be harder
to open. The stairwells are the lifeline of a high-rise building. In an emergency, occupants must use
them to evacuate their floor and the Fire Department will use them to get to the fire floor.
There are five passenger elevators and one freight elevator grouped in one bank. Two additional elevators
provide service from the lobby to all levels of the parking structure at 1221 Ocean.
During a Fire:
All passenger elevators will be recalled to the Lobby. Elevators are not to be used in a fire
emergency. Smoke may enter the elevator shaft and elevators may stop and open onto the fire floor.
Elevator lobby doors will release automatically and close upon any alarm condition. In the event
smoke enters the elevator shaft, these doors will help prevent smoke from entering the corridors. The
corridors are your means of exiting to the stairwells.
In an Earthquake:
The elevators will stop momentarily, then move up or down to the next floor, opposite its
counterweight. It will open at that floor and remain there until the appropriate personnel inspect it and
reactivate it.
Elevators (continued)
In a Power Failure:
The elevators will stop where they are. Once the emergency generator is activated, each elevator will
be called down to the lobby area, one at a time. PLEASE DO NOT BE ALARMED. IT MAY TAKE
Each elevator cab has emergency lights and an emergency phone that connects directly to the
Building Office.
Fire Extinguishers
ABC-type extinguishers are located in unlocked cabinets on each floor. These are for use on fires involving
wood, paper, plastics, grease, oil and electricity.
Fire Control Room
The fire control room is located in the building lobby and contains the building’s fire alarm panels and
emergency controls. From here, the building’s Fire Safety Director and the City of Santa Monica Fire
Department will coordinate the building’s emergency operations.
The heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system will automatically shut down throughout the building in a
fire emergency to prevent the circulation of smoke throughout the building.
Suite Doors and Corridors
The doors that provide ingress to and egress from your suite are fire-rated for two (2) hours. They are
designed to prevent smoke and/or fire from entering your suite from the corridor. Consequently, it is
important that these doors remain CLOSED when not in use.
Glass Breakage
If a panel of glass breaks or is cracked, please advise the Building Office immediately. If the breakage
represents a danger to those in the area, such as in the case of an exterior opening, building staff will clean
the area and rope it off. If the glass cannot be replaced immediately, temporary measures, including the
boarding of the window, will be completed at the direction of building staff.
boarding of the window, will be completed at the direction of building staff.
Extension Cords and Temporary Power Taps:
The Los Angeles City Department of Building and Safety has imposed strict enforcement of the Los Angeles
Municipal Code prohibiting the use of extension cords and “temporary power taps”. Specifically, the Code
prohibits the use of any unshielded or unprotected cords, and thus, no extension cords are allowed under
any circumstances. For example, use of a cord that does not add an additional plug receptacle beyond its
own cord, is a violation of the Code. Please make sure that you and your employees are complying with
these Code requirements and are not using any extension cords, including but not limited to the multiplex
strips and other “surge protection” units commonly used with computers and other sensitive equipment. If
you wish to check the legality of a device used for surge protection, locate the UL (Underwriters Laboratory)
sticker and look for the approved designation. If it says, “temporary power source” or “temporary tap” or
any other phrase incorporating the word “temporary" be advised that it does not comply with Code.
We realize that you may want to add some electrical receptacles in your space as a result of this Code
enforcement. If so, please contact the Building Office with plans for approval and also if you wish to receive
a quotation on installation.
Fire/Life/Safety (continued)
Fire Extinguishers:
Each tenant is responsible for the annual servicing of all fire extinguishers located within its
premises. While the Building utilizes a suggested vendor, outside vendors are permitted, as long as
they are approved by the Los Angeles City Fire Department.
Every fire extinguisher must be properly tagged. The tag will specify the name, number and
registration information regarding the testing company and the type of service and date service was
Storage of Combustibles:
Many tenants have storage rooms within their premises or at other locations within the Building. Division 57
of the Code is specific as to the arrangement of materials, height of materials, aisle requirements and fire
extinguishers. Specifically, please note:
“…A clearance of at least eighteen (18) inches shall be maintained between storage materials and
the ceiling.”
“...An unobstructed clearance of at least two (2) feet shall be maintained between stored materials.”
“...Portable fire extinguishers shall be provided, installed, and distributed in Storage
Areas in accordance with Division 140 of this Article…”
Storage of Items in Elevator Lobbies
No storage whatsoever is allowed in the elevator lobbies.
Fire/Life/Safety (continued)
Storage of Combustibles (continued):
Building staff has been instructed to notify the Building Office whenever items are left in the elevator lobbies
during business hours. The Building Office will make an effort to contact the appropriate tenant and request
immediate removal and/or disposal of all items. After-hours, the night janitorial staff will discard all items left
in the freight elevator lobbies. Should your office generate an unusual amount of rubbish during the day,
please store it in your suite, mark it “BASURA” and it will be removed by the night janitorial staff. There are
"BASURA" stickers available through the Building Office.
In the event the Building Office finds it necessary to arrange for removal of items from an elevator lobby and
generates overtime charges from various personnel; such charges will be apportioned to all tenants on that
particular floor.
Attached is a quick reference page for Fire Life Safety Prevention Tips. This sheet can be copied and
distributed to your office personnel.
Fire/Life/Safety (continued)
Fire Life Safety Prevention Tips
Smoking is not allowed within the building or office premises, including the parking facility.
Report any frayed or damaged electrical cords to your supervisor.
Do not run electrical cords under carpets or chair pads.
Do not overload electrical outlets.
Turn off or unplug appliances when not in use, especially coffee makers.
Do not let trash overflow in wastebaskets or collection areas.
Do not block stairwells or corridors.
Do not prop open stairwell, corridor or other fire doors. If these doors are propped open and there is
a fire, smoke can easily spread throughout the building.
Never store anything in the stairwells. There should be nothing in the stairwells that can burn or
restrict traffic flow. Remember that the stairwells are your means of exiting in an emergency.
Check lighting in corridors, office suites, exit signs. Report any malfunctioning lights to the Building
When you leave your office, keep doors closed. In the event of a fire, closed doors will limit the
spread of the fire and smoke.
Do not overcook food in the microwave. The food can smoke causing the alarms to activate.
Fire/Life/Safety (continued)
Fire Safety Director
Douglas Emmett has developed a comprehensive Emergency Plan that includes fire, explosion, bomb

Emergency Procedures: Severe Weather
When severe weather conditions become apparent, the U.S. Weather Bureau describes conditions by two
(2) classifications, a Watch or a Warning. This applies to the reporting of severe thunderstorms, the
approach of weather conditions favoring the formation of tornadoes, a hurricane condition, a winter storm
condition, etc. A Watch becomes effective when atmospheric conditions are right to produce the particular
weather phenomenon. A Warning means that the weather condition has been spotted and prompt action
must be taken for safety.
Except in very rare circumstances, the decision to evacuate the building based on the above weather
reports will not be made by Building Management, but rather by each Tenant Company. However, in the
event these conditions do exist, the following guidelines should be kept in mind:
Move away from outside windows. If the windows in your offices are supplied with blinds, close the
blinds (this will provide protection from broken glass).
Do not panic.
If evacuated, lock all desk drawers and take all items of value with you.
If evacuated, use a route that is in the building interior and stay away from large expanses of glass
and windows.
Use the stairwells rather than the elevators.
If evacuated, do not return to your office until advised to do so.
Emergency Procedures: Toxic Hazards
If there is a toxic spill or exposure, immediately get to an area where you are not exposed and call 9-1-1.
Give building address, floor and phone number, and also what type of spill. Take action to contain the
hazard; close doors behind you, and always follow all safety procedures when working with toxic materials.

Policies and Procedures: Contractors
All tenant suite alterations, regardless of the scope of work, are subject to Building approval procedures and
Contractor rules and regulations. All changes must comply with the provisions of the Lease Agreement,
must be submitted in writing and must have the approval of the Landlord. Any work initiated without proper
authorization is subject to removal at the Tenant’s expense. This provision will be strictly enforced as both
Landlord and Tenant may incur substantial risk if all work does not meet applicable legal requirements.
Please check your Lease for any custom guidelines. Below is a summary of the Building standard
guidelines and procedures:
Alteration Scope:
All alterations and work to tenant’s premises must receive prior approval of the Building Office. These
would include:
Any alterations and additions, painting, erecting partitions, miscellaneous electrical work, nailing,
boring or any fastening into ceilings, walls, or floors.
Contractor Rules and Regulations:
All contractors must read and sign a copy of the Rules and Regulations governing construction (can
be obtained from the Building Office).
It is mandatory that only Building pre-approved Contractors are utilized. Please contact the Building
Office for a detailed list.
The in-house key system is proprietary; therefore the Engineering Department from the Building
Office must handle all keying situations.
The Architect/Space Planner is responsible for Plan Check and obtaining the Building permit. It must
include all Code requirements (i.e., ADA/DAD, Title 24, etc.) on the design documents. These
documents must be submitted to Douglas Emmett for review prior to construction. Please contact the
Building Office for specific information.
Approval of the construction documents is for general area arrangements only and does not include
specific approvals for engineering, material types, construction, details, finishes, Code compliance,
It is important to note the insurance and indemnity requirements attached to the Contractor
Regulations and Guidelines. These requirements must be made a part of any agreement with the
general contractor.
Miscellaneous (continued)
Prior to commencement of work, a "kick-off" meeting must be scheduled at your convenience with the
Tenant Representative for construction, your Contractor and Architect, and Douglas Emmett
representatives. At this meeting, Douglas Emmett will go over the rules and regulations.
At the "kick-off" meeting, it is imperative that the Contractor bring the awarded subcontractors
employee list for Building access, insurance certificates for all contractors and subcontractors, copy of
building permit, mechanical/electrical permits (if available) and a copy of the executed construction
contract with the indemnity requirements.
Any questions on the Contractor Regulations and Guidelines will be addressed at the kick-off
meeting. Please note that work cannot commence until the kick-off meeting is completed and all
documents have been submitted to Douglas Emmett.
It is essential that the Contractor pay strict attention to Owner's guidelines on noise, dust control, and
painting for the protection of the client-occupied floors. It is also essential that the Contractor be
familiar with and comply with all access, freight elevator and loading dock procedures.
Contractors must supply as-built drawings and certified air balance reports. Please refer to the
Contractor Regulations and Guidelines for Tenant Improvement Work for specifics.
Miscellaneous (continued)
Upon completion of work, copies of all permits and final inspection documentation must be forwarded
to the Building Office. It is also essential that Tenants forward final cost notification to the Building
Office. This information is critical as property taxes are triggered by the Building permit process and
this information is required by our tax consultants.
All construction or repair personnel must register at the Office of the Building. A sign in sheet will be
provided for all Construction personnel. Construction personnel may not use the Passenger
elevators. All construction personnel should park in the building parking garage and pay the normal
daily rates.
A Certificate of Insurance is required for all contractors/subcontractors working in the building. All
certificates must be forwarded to the Building Office.

Policies and Procedures: Good Neighbor Policy
100 Wilshire Boulevard realizes the importance of a good neighbor policy. We all benefit from good
neighbors and by being alert for unusual occurrences in our building. Please report to Building Management
or Security should any of the following be observed.
Any unusual circumstance; i.e. people loitering in the corridors or anywhere throughout the Building
or grounds; something apparently out of place, etc.
Trash or safety hazards in the corridors, lobby, restroom, garage, or any other public areas. Be alert
for obstruction of fire doors, or any obstruction that could result in an injury or fatality.
Deliver to Building Management or Security any item found that you believe might be lost. Please
note where you found the object and the time discovered so that we may attempt to locate the owner.
Burned out lights throughout the building or grounds must be replaced as soon as possible for your
safety and safety of others.
Please observe building security procedures if accessing the building after hours. If you notice
unauthorized persons in the Building after hours, please notify Security immediately.
Policies and Procedures: Moving Policy
Management will assume that our tenants are responsible for moving all supplies, furniture, fixtures and
other personal property into, within and out of the Building, unless notified otherwise. Management will work
with you to arrange for the appropriate time and entrance access for the move. To ensure a smooth move,
it is in our mutual best interests that the moving schedule be confirmed in writing. Move-ins and move-outs
shall take place after-hours and on weekends. Below is specific information to help you with your move:
The Building Office must receive notification of the date of the move along with the specifics of time of
arrival of movers, etc. It is helpful that a tenant representative be designated to deal with the Building Office
staff on the coordination of the move.
Freight Elevator/Loading Dock Reservation:
Reservations for the freight elevator for the removal of fixtures and furniture can be made Monday through
Friday after 5:00 PM and any time on Saturday and Sunday. Prior arrangements MUST BE MADE AT
LEAST ONE WEEK IN ADVANCE for use of the loading dock and the freight elevator so the Building Office
may determine availability and reserve use.

Certificate of Insurance:
The moving company must provide a Certificate of Insurance with appropriate coverage and provisions as
designated by the Building Office. Please click here to see the Insurance Section for specific requirement
information. This Certificate must be forwarded to the Building Office twenty-four (24) business hours in
advance of the time and date of the move. The moving company will not be permitted access unless an
approved Certificate is on file with the Building Office.
On the date of the move, the moving company must check-in at the Lobby Console. After clearance is
verified, the security officer will provide assistance with the utilization of the freight elevator. It is important
that a Tenant Representative be present to meet the moving company at the suite to provide access. Lobby
Attendants are not authorized to open suite doors unless prior arrangements have been made with the
Building Office. In the event of a move-out, on the date of the move, if all suite keys have been turned into
the Building Office, special authorization can be obtained to allow our staff to provide access to the suite for
a designated Tenant Representative. Please make these arrangements in advance.

Protection of Building Interiors:
Notify your moving company that all deliveries must be made through the loading dock located in the rear of
the building. Please advise them that they must put masonite or ½” plywood on the elevator lobby carpets
and elevator cab so that the carpet does not get stretched. All dollies must be equipped with rubber
wheels. Any damage caused to the elevator or building during a move-out will be charged to the tenant.
We highly recommend that your moving company contact the Office of the Building to ensure that they are
familiar with all moving procedures at One Hundred Wilshire. No move-ins will be permitted to take place
through the building lobby. Please ensure that your moving company is aware of the policy prior to the date
of your move, as this procedure may impact their operations.
Car-Top Moves
Should you have any exceptionally large furniture that needs to be moved, it may need to be moved
on the roof of the freight elevator cab. It is extremely important that the movers verify that your
furniture will fit within the freight elevator prior to your move-in date.
A car-top move MUST BE SCHEDULED AT LEAST 5 DAYS PRIOR to the move, as two elevator
technicians are required and prior arrangements must be made with the elevator company. Contact
the Office of the Building to obtain current rates for car-top moves.
It will be the tenant’s responsibility if additional costs are incurred due to the movers not being aware
of insurance policies, not knowing that all moves must go through the loading dock or if the furniture
does not fit inside the elevator.

Policies and Procedures: Smoking
On January 1, 1995, smoking was prohibited in all enclosed work areas. It is the EMPLOYER’S
RESPONSIBILITY to enforce this new law. Therefore, it is your responsibility to inform your employees of
Assembly Bill AB13, as there is no smoking in your suite and there is no smoking in the following areas:
All elevator lobby waiting areas;
All public corridors;
All restrooms;
The main lobby on the first floor of the building;
All internal stairwells or stairwell balconies.
There shall be no exceptions to the non-smoking policy. Appropriate signs are placed in the elevator lobby
waiting areas on each floor. This non-smoking policy is now deemed to be a term and condition of your
Lease Agreement pursuant to paragraph 36 which authorizes the owner of the property to implement such
rules and regulations as the owner deems to be in the best interest of the safety, care, security, good order
and cleanliness of the building.
There is no smoking within 20 feet of any entrance, exit, bus stop or ATM.
On October 24, 2006, the Santa Monica City Council adopted an ordinance that expands the outdoor areas
in the city that are smoke-free. (SMMC §4.44.020(a).) The ordinance went into effect on Thanksgiving Day,
November 23, 2006. Click here to download a complete Memorandum on this ordinance.
Policies and Procedures: Tenant Improvement Work

and ensures compliance with all governmental regulatory agency requirements.
Water - Related Work
All contractors or vendors coming into the building to work on anything "water-related", must be
accompanied by the building's Chief Engineer who will be present at the onset of the work, up until the
completion of such work. The cost of the Chief Engineer's time will be at the sole cost of the contractor or
