All tenant mail is delivered and picked up by U.S. Postal Service carriers daily, Monday through Friday. There are mail drop/pick up boxes for Federal Express, Lone Star Overnight, and UPS in the mailroom located on the first floor of the Building.
Prior to moving in, each tenant, at its own expense, should contact a local telephone company or vendor for installation of their system. Costs for special work, such as special conduit, electrical outlets, floor monuments, etc. are the responsibility of the tenant. Any additional telephone or electrical work, subsequent to move-in, will be performed at tenant’s expense. Please submit a work order request for any additional work. The Management at Esperson will arrange to have any necessary conduit installed for telephone work, but it is the telephone vendor’s responsibility to secure a “Low Voltage” permit to install the system and to make all arrangements with the telephone company.
The building is equipped with fiber optics and high speed internet and is available to all tenants of the building. Please refer to Building Utility Providers List.
LIABILITY OF INSURANCE
Please ensure that a copy of your Certificate of Insurance is forwarded to the Management Office, in accordance with your Lease.
CONSTRUCTION OR SERVICE WORK
All construction service or repair work, as well as the contractors performing such work, must be approved in writing by the Management at Esperson. The administrative fee, as stated under each tenant lease, will be charged to Tenant.
LIGHTING AND HVAC SYSTEM
Because of our concern with rising energy costs, which are passed through to tenants as operating expenses, and our desire to conserve energy, we request your cooperation in helping to conserve energy. Please turn off all unnecessary electrical items, including your office lighting, and computer equipment at the end of each day. The janitorial service at Esperson has also been instructed to observe this procedure with respect to office lighting.
The heating and air-conditioning equipment is computer controlled for a comfortable setting. If employees are too warm or cold, please file a work order request immediately and we will regulate the controls.
PROBLEMS AFTER HOURS
For after hours emergencies, please contact Building Security at (713) 224-1663, and Security will contact the appropriate Management Personnel.
There are fourteen passenger elevators, one freight elevator, and two garage elevators. Each elevator has an emergency call button in case of an emergency. If the elevator stops and the doors do not open, remain calm. Press the “Emergency Call” button, which will automatically ring into the monitoring company who will then contact building security and dispatch an elevator maintenance technician.
Please report any elevator malfunction (i.e., doors not closing properly, elevator cab not leveling with floor, call button light on) via work order request.

On August 28, 2002, The City of Houston amended Article IX Smoking Ordinance that became effective November 26, 2002. Under the Ordinance, smoking is prohibited in all tenant spaces, and is only permitted outside the building, provided that smokers remain at least 25 feet away from any building entrance.
Cameron Management has created a covered smoking area off the street for our tenants. It is located atop the garage and may be accessed using the Mellie Esperson elevators (815 Walker) to the 6th floor, then exit out the door to the garage to the designated smoking area.
