The main lift (in reality a disguised telephone booth) transports visitors from ground level to the Atrium on floor B8. To activate the main lift, dial 62442 (spelling "magic"). More than twenty service lifts stop at all floors between B1 and B9, inclusive. Stairways must be used to access the courtrooms on floor B10.
