Google’s newest campus – level 3

24-05-2022 07:00

Google showed its plans for the future of work at its new campus in Silicon Valley, California.

The 93,000-square-meter campus features two office buildings and one event building, and around 40,000 employees will work there. The campus and its three buildings are Google’s first buildings from the ground up.

They are going to provide new hybrid ways of working, that would require employees to work in the offices a few times a week. The company wanted to rethink the nature of a workplace and how it can make buildings and structures that people will love and use for decades.

According to Google, sustainability is key to the campus. 90,000 silver solar panels on the roof generate up to 40% of the offices’ energy needs. Automated window shades let in natural lighting, and a ventilation system uses 100% outside air.

Difficult words: from the ground up (from the beginning), hybrid (a combination of two different things), sustainability (the production of things without damage to the environment).
