Google Bay View

The Google Bay View campus offers 1.1M sq. ft. of office space and 240 modular short-term employee accommodation units on 42 acres. The campus is designed with California’s drought issues in mind. It houses North America’s largest geothermal heat-pump network, allowing the campus to access ground head for its HVAC systems, as well as to distribute excess heat into the ground during hotter months. The campus also includes 57,000 silver solar panels, supplying 4 megawatts of electricity (enough to accommodate 40% of the building’s power needs). BKF provided civil engineering design and land surveying services for the project, including the preparation of construction documents and construction support.
