We have seen Apple's new campus a few times in the past, with various drone shots and photos surfacing frequently. The folks at Popsci got a private tour of the new campus, and they were able to get some additional information about the facility. From Apple's use of custom concrete slabs with a hollow center to the up to 46-foot glass panes that wrap the campus, there is a lot to see here.
- 176: Acres the new Campus will occupy
- 1.23 million: Square footage of glass involved in the project
- 3,000: Approximate total number of glass panes used
- 7,000: Weight, in pounds, of the heaviest panes of vertical glass
- 4,300: Concrete slabs needed for the floor and ceiling
- 60,000: How many pounds the heaviest concrete slabs weigh
- 75: Percentage of renewable energy that campus itself will produce during peak daytime hours
- 16: Megawatts of power produced by rooftop solar panels
- 5 billion: Total cost, in dollars, this project is reported to approximately cost (Apple declined to comment on an official figure)
The building will have seven cafes, a 120,000 square-foot theater for product announcements, fitness center and much more. Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2016, with employees moving into the campus early in 2017.
