The reception and foyer area are shared by other departments on Level 17. Please keep noise to a minimum and do not have food or drink in this space.
When using the facilities at 53 Albert Street, do not:
- consume alcohol on the premises
- move the operable wall
- pour anything except water down the drains.
Be considerate of others and keep noise to a minimum.
Kitchens are available for catering—but this is your responsibility to organise. You can self-cater or choose an outside caterer.
If you choose outside catering, you must inform the company they are to leave the catering in the room or the kitchen.
Clients MUST ensure the external caterer removes all of their equipment, storage containers and utensils by the end of the event.
No food or drink is allowed in the reception area. Do not use beverage heating equipment, such as urns or coffee makers, as they do not meet the buildings energy efficiency requirements. The caterer must provide all equipment, and all facilities must be left clean or a cleaning fee will apply.
Your caterer must follow all current workplace health and safety regulations, and all their equipment must have a current compliance tag attached and be marked with the owner’s contact name and address.
Zip taps are provided.
