Apple’s new campus is so huge that it looks like a giant spaceship
Apple’s new campus in Cupertino is fantastic and it is huge. The software and technology giant has been working for the last 3 years on the infrastructure of its new headquarters and it has expanded to span large dimensions.
Very recently Apple launched a drone video for its fans to showcase how much work has been done over the last three years.
1 NO expense has been spared on the over budget construction
Apple technologies have spared no expense in its new sprawling campus built on a new futuristic design. The building has been constructed at a budget of $5 billion and is spread over 176 acres of land. When complete it will house 13,000 employees. Apple’s new campus is so vast that it won’t be surprising if the support structure involves free bikes ready for employees use to zip from one end to another.
What’s more, Apple is going all eco on its new building which will feature hundreds of solar panels to harvest solar energy. That can be seen in the video. The new campus will also have underground parking lots to house 11,000 vehicles. There will also be additional parking on the campus ground for an extra 3,200 vehicles. Regarded as Apple’s ‘MOTHERSHIP’ by tabloids. Steve Jobs had compared it to a spaceship.
2 Inauguration date 2017
The architect of the new campus is Lord Norman Foster and the engineering is being done by none other than the global engineering major ARUP engineering. The facilities of the Apple’s new campus will include a 1000 seat auditorium and a massive R&D facility spread over 300,000 sq feet. It will have its own orchard, an impressive courtyard and a fitness center. Every glass pane in the building will be curved.
The inauguration date of the campus is proposed for early 2017, but speculation is ripe that it may not be completed on time. Hopefully Apple’s new campus will be ready on time and when it does, it will be an incredible sight. Watch the drone footage taken recently.
