New Corporate Office Campus with R&D Space
IMEG provided structural engineering and design services for a leading-edge technology company’s new corporate office building campus on an 18-acre site at Central Expressway and Wolfe Road in Sunnyvale, California. Apple Campus 3 is a new 882,857-sf design-build campus comprised of three six-story connected buildings, each containing four stories of office space and two stories of concrete podium parking; a one-story stand-alone amenities building; and a 518,175-sf, seven-story free-standing parking garage structure with 1,540 parking stalls. The third floor of each of the three connected buildings have exterior occupiable spaces at the perimeter of the building, as well as open-to-the-sky courtyards at the core of each sector.
The office buildings and parking garage are post-tensioned concrete structures with a combined total building area of over 1,400,000-sf. Because these are post-tensioned, cast-inplace concrete buildings, all of the office and R&D laboratory spaces have soaring 13.5 foot floor-to-floor-heights. Each of the three office buildings has an average floor plate of 62,000-sf for a total of 208,000-sf floor plates when factoring in the 60-ft wide occupied spaces connecting the three buildings.
Campus amenities include a conference center, a cafeteria, fitness center, coffee bar, general store, barbershop, bike repair shop, banking, dry cleaning and laundry pickup, health and wellness clinic. The central quad has a 500-person sunken amphitheater and is designed to allow food truck access in and around it. Additionally, the campus includes sports courts and fields, as well as over two miles of on-site walking and bike paths. This project is LEED Platinum certified.
