My experience has been that there are two groups that have nearly unfettered
and unescorted access to all spaces: private security guards, and the
cleaning crew.  Both are poorly paid and on the bottom of the social scale,
so employees don't want to be seen having any contact with them.  Duplicate
their appearance and you will be shunned.

Try to observe the cleaning crew's appearance, doors used, etc.  Cleaning
crews leave doors open / unlocked / propped all the time.  They work after
hours, so there are few (if any) employees around to watch you shove laptops
into your trash bin.

Okay,I've been contacted about pentesting physical security system for 
a  medium size company that is integrating IT & physical 
security,ie;cameras,id gates,etc.
I'm not exactly sure where to start,other than the 
obvious;passwords,permissions,etc.

Maybe some clue here:
