Notes to Your Moving Contractor
We suggest that the tenant and moving contractor enter into a written agreement outlining the agreed-upon terms and conditions in addition to the suggested items as outlined below:

• For the safety of other tenants and to protect building finishes, only the designated freight elevator and the shipping and receiving facility may be used during the move. Please adhere to specified hours and understand that this elevator may be booked by another tenant or contractor so your move must be completed within the agreed-upon times.

• Moving contractors must supply the management office with evidence of satisfactory insurance (see Tenant Insurance Requirements) and Workers Compensation coverage and designate the person responsible for all aspects of your move.

• To minimize disruption to all tenants, large deliveries and moves must take place during non-business hours. All work should be accomplished with a concerted effort to eliminate unnecessary noise, obstructions and other annoyances.

• All crates, cartons, wrapping and waste, must be removed and disposed of off-site by your moving company on a daily basis. Please ensure this is part of the contract with your moving company or supplier. The premises, streets and sidewalks must be kept clean of debris during your move.

• All interior surfaces including carpet, floor finishes and wall coverings in the area of the move must be protected.

• Please instruct your moving contractor to maintain proper access to areas within the building at all times and keep fire exits clear. This will be strictly enforced.

• We ask that tenants not allow any situation (within your control) to develop or interfere with work being done by other trades. The tenant should co-operate with any trades not directly in your jurisdiction.

Additional Costs That May Be Associated With Your Move:
• The management office may, prior to or after the move, erect and dismantle any protective barriers deemed necessary in the common areas of the building to protect building finishes. The tenant will be responsible for any costs associated with respect to the barriers.

• If, in the opinion of World Exchange Plaza Management, the move will require security personnel for tenant safety, and to adequately protect the common areas of the building during the move, the tenant shall be responsible for the cost.

• Please note that tenants are responsible for replacement or repair of any damages or cleaning costs incurred as a result of a move. Replacement, repair or cleaning will be completed by World Exchange Plaza Management at the tenant’s expense including but not limited to damage to the lobbies, loading dock, elevators and corridors.

Building Access and Access Card System
The following systems and policies provide safety and security to the tenants at World Exchange Plaza:

Building Hours
Normal business hours for World Exchange Plaza are Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., excluding statutory holidays. At all other times a building access card will be required to gain entry to the building and/or desired floor.

Access Control
To provide tenants and staff with 24-hour controlled access to the building and offices, World Exchange Plaza is equipped with a proximity card access system. Access cards will be issued to each tenant upon written request for access to the tenant’s floor. Cards should only be distributed to tenant employees requiring access to the building outside of normal business hours.

Building access cards may be obtained from the management office by completing the Card Access & Key Request Form, which must then be signed by the tenant’s authorized representative. Please note that the same procedure must be followed for additional keys. One card is provided for each staff member when you move into your new premises. There is no charge for the initial set-up of a card, however tenants will be invoiced for replacement cards.

How to Use Your Access Card
• Hold the card within 3 inches of the card reader. Readers will read through wallets and purses.
• The red light will turn green and make a beeping sound.
• When the light is green, open the door.
• If the red light stays on after the beep please visit Security in the main lobby.
• Cardholders should never loan or transfer their access card to another person.

Access Card Audit
It is the responsibility of each tenant representative to conduct an audit of access cards held by your employees from time to time. World Exchange Plaza Security will be happy to assist by providing a print-out of all active cards to allow you to verify that all active cards are being held by current employees. Notify World Exchange Plaza Security of any changes.

Tenants must collect the access card when a staff member leaves their employment and ensure that they notify security.

Office Floor/Suite Access
Access to the building and office floors outside of business hours is permitted only to those individuals possessing a valid building access card. For employees who have misplaced or forgotten their access cards, prior written authorization granting the employee access must be submitted to the management office and signed by the authorized tenant representative. In the interest of Security, we recommend that you instruct your staff that access is not permitted without a valid access card. If a security officer is not able to obtain the necessary approval, access will not be granted.

Requests from individuals with valid access cards but no keys to the premises will be handled in the same manner.

After Business Hours Entry: Clients and Guests
If you wish to have clients or guests access the building outside of business hours, you must advise World Exchange Plaza Building Security.

Upon arrival at the building, guests will be required to identify themselves and their destination to Security. Security will telephone your suite and request that a representative come to the lobby to escort your guest to the floor, or the security officer may provide the escort, time permitting. Under no circumstances are security guards allowed to give a client or guest access to a tenant suite. Access will not be provided after business hours under any other circumstances.

After Business Hours Entry: Contractor
If a tenant wishes to have building security provide access to a contractor for their premises outside of normal office hours (i.e. carpet cleaners, furniture repairers) the tenant must advise QuadReal CONNECT no later than 2 p.m. on the date of the intended visit.

The contractor must sign in and is given a "Contractor" I.D. badge by World Exchange Plaza Security upon arrival at the building. The badge must be worn in plain sight and returned to Security before leaving the building. Security will unlock the tenant's entrance door, and the contractor, once inside, should lock the door ensuring the premises are secure. When the contractor has completed the work, he or she must telephone Security and request that a security guard come to the premises. The contractor may not leave until a security guard arrives. Security will secure the tenant’s door.

The contractor must sign out upon leaving the building. If a tenant prefers that contractors not be left unsupervised in the suite, a security guard can be provided as an additional service. Arrange security supervision by contacting the management office. The minimum charge for this work is 4 hours at current rates.

• Establish a rule that keys must not be left unguarded on desks or cabinets.
• Ensure that filing cabinet keys are removed from locks and placed in a secure location after opening of cabinets each morning.
• Prevent unauthorized personnel from reporting a "lost key" and receiving a "replacement". Have a key replacement policy.

Power Failures

World Exchange Plaza has an Emergency Generator, which, in the event of a power failure, will automatically engage. There may be a split-second power blip while the transfer switch redirects emergency power.

During a power failure the generator will supply power to the following essential base building systems:

• Passenger Elevators (1 high-rise; 1 low-rise)
• Service Elevator
• Fire/Life Safety Systems
• Emergency Lighting
• Parking Gates and Overhead Doors

Also be aware that during a power failure the security and surveillance systems at the Security Operations Center will still function. Due to battery backup equipped ACUs, card readers and associated electric strike locks will continue to have electronic release capability for a period of approximately 6 to 8 hours. These locks will default to fail secure locked mode should the batteries die prior to hydro service being restored, in which case doors will be restricted to key access. All mag-locks will automatically release and remain disengaged until normal hydro service has returned and the locks manually reset at the central master over-ride key switch located in the EVAC room.
