Google Campus – Phase 2
Kirkland, WA / 180,000 SF
Google Phase 2 is a 2-story 180,000 SF office facility adjacent to Google’s existing Kirkland campus. There are two full levels of parking beneath the building containing 720 parking spots. As is common with many Google facilities there are a plethora of amenities including a rooftop deck, gym, sports fields, full service cafeteria, and sky bridge to the old campus. The building incorporates several innovative systems that help it achieve a LEED Platinum rating. These include dedicated outdoor air units serving chilled beams, an energy recovering water-to-water heat pump, a green roof, and a rainwater reclamation system to flush toilets and provide irrigation. This building was designed and detailed within the engineering department using CAD-Duct and Design Line software. This software facilitated an easy transfer of information between engineering, estimating, and production, greatly streamlining the project.
