Building Manager

We will provide a Building Manager who will open the rental space at the prearranged time, remain on the premises for the duration of the event, then close and secure the rental space. If at the end of the rental period the premises are not in good order and the Building Manager must stay after the agreed upon end time to do additional cleanup, the rate for that time will be charged at $60 per hour. If a second Building Manager is needed, for example to assist with a fast setup change, there is an additional flat fee of $50.

The rate for a rehearsal in conjunction with a wedding or similar event is $50.
