Apart from the level entrance, and entrance to the ground floor, all other doors are manual.
The level entrance has a wide powered door activated by swipe card (or from reception – contact by intercom). From here there is a level route around to the ground floor of the building at the rear. There are automated sliding doors leading into a lobby area and another set of powered doors – you’ll need to use the push button to open these.
