If you are not the building owner, you must contact the building owner or manager to ensure technicians have access to required rooms and make building modifications, if required.

Installation of service may require floor plans for your building or office space.

If cables need to be buried on your building's property, then your assistance may be needed to ensure all utilities are properly marked.
