Apple’s New Office – The Greenest Building Of Them All…
APPLE known for their amazing smartphones, iPADs and a dozen other amazing inventions are really trying to shape up their environmental credentials. And they may have just be the owners of the greenest building in the world.
Many leading companies around the world claim that their offices are green, environment friendly, etc. The offices which fall under this category are, Powerhouse Kjorbo, Deloitte Headquarters, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, The Co-operative Group Headquarters, The Bullitt Center, NuOfffice, etc. Every eco-friendly building has some unique feature which makes them popular in the world.
The companies have started to contribute towards a healthier and greener environment by making their office energy efficient by using renewable sources of energy.
Out of all these buildings, Apple’s Campus 2, which will be operational in 2016, will be the greenest building of the planet, the description of the campus is exciting but till the time it does not open we cannot say much. This eco-friendly building will prove it to the world that high levels of water and energy efficiency are achievable.
Tim Cook talked about this building at a Climate Week Conference which was held in New York. The company will try to make use of renewable sources of energy to fulfill the energy demands of the building and will plant around 7,000 trees so as to create a green environment all around. Also, there will be a lot of focus on the use of recycled materials.
Any company which has a green campus is popular all over the world and also sets an example for others. We all know that there is a need for people to think of different ways to protect the environment. Setting up an eco-friendly building is going to be a great thing for the environment, as more and more companies are likely to follow.
If Apple claims it to be the greenest building on the planet, the expectations are too high. Once the building is going to open, then only we can judge whether it is actually true or not. We trust the brand and so, we expect something truly amazing from the company.
There are various design plans which are being considered by Apple for this new eco-friendly building. The cement which will be used in this building will be fetched in a unique way. The old cement will be recycled and will be used in the construction of the building. The renewable source of energy which will be used is still not disclosed, but it is expected that it will be either solar or wind. Also, the building will have natural ventilation.
So, let’s wait till 2016 and see what this building is going to be like.
