For several years, it was nips and tucks, but 2017 will see Steve Job’s idea of Apple Park (which was conceived in 2011), being actualized. A new campus raised at a strategic place in Santa Clara Valley is now a success and is yet to be opened in April. It is a tremendous development being the largest of its kind in the world. It is erected on a 2.8 million square foot and its construction taking more than five billion.
The Grand Opening – April
The grand opening of the facility is quite an expectation. At this time, the facility is undergoing through final touch ups, and after that, the new campus will be opened on the selected date in April 2017. The campus will thus start functioning, and it’s expected to host managerial offices and an IT Square.
Tim Cook who is the current CEO of Apple will also be moving to his office within the new facility. He acknowledges the work of the former CEO who passed away in 2011 as having a good vision that has eventually materialized. Fortunately, before he did, he had launched the Vision Of Apple Park at the council. Six years now, through the company’s effort, the building is almost completed.
Will There Be Logistical Nightmares?
Most offices will move to the new revolutionary tech facility, but some see the logistical process as a chary one. The employees of the company will be moving to Apple Park in April after its opening, and it’s inevitable that some operations will be affected. This shifting is likely to take up to six months or more. The expected number of employees who will move to the facility is 12,000. It will be an incredible start, in the new facility, which in every way has the best working environment including a fitness center where they can utilize for their physical fitness.
What’s In There?
Apple Park is an exemplary facility with amazing features to benefit both the environment and the employees. Some of the Apple Park’s peculiar features include:
- Beautiful orchard,
- Fitness center with a runway that is more than two miles,
- Visitor’s center in which a cafeteria and a theater; to be named after the co-founder Steve Jobs
- 17 Megawatts Solar Power
- 1000-seat auditorium
As a result, it is certain that Apple Park will attract visitors and tourists to enjoy the provisional. The facility will be a center for developments and innovations through research – some say, it will be the greatest facility in the 21st century for R&D in the tech industry.
The building is ring-shaped and made of glass, and its design hails contemporary construction styles of the Britons. This makes it beautiful despite the fact that the interior design is still veiled. There is also a good grassy and tree-lined yard, which enhances its serenity.
Apple Park Is an Eco-Facility
Apple Park will pride in the natural ventilation of the new guerilla facility, where most of the systems are far different from those of the traditional buildings. Within the first nine months, there will be a natural, sustainable ventilation system to serve the building. There will be no need of installing air conditioners or ventilators. Also, the facility will be using renewable energy generated from solar panels mounted on the roof of the building.
Many people have diverse perspectives regarding the upcoming world-class Apple Center, but for me, I delight most in the cafeteria and theater which are to be named after the vision bearer of Apple Park; Steve Jobs. It is an honor to recognize one’s efforts towards a successful idea like this. Also, it is certain that it will be the most valued for the potential tourists it will attract in California.
