Once the door is opened, take the stairs or the lift to the first floor. Turn right out of the lift/at the top of the stairs and go through the door leading outside that has a Contact Associates sign and Fire Exit/Keep Clear on it. This takes you across a short walkway to our main office door which also has Fire Exit/Keep Clear on it.
