Building Continues At Apple Campus II

LEED:
The project is expected to get Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification as an environmentally friendly project.

Project Description:
The purveyor of the iPhone, iPad and Mac will soon be expanding. Dubbed the "Spacecraft", the company is now constructing Apple Campus II which includes four levels of circular office space totaling 2,800,000 sq. ft. and two below grade levels mostly for parking totaling 1,500,000 sq. ft. When completed, the circle’s interior and exterior will be mostly constructed of glass and polished concrete, and solar panels will sit atop the circle. Key National Gypsum building materials will also be integrated into the growing high-tech headquarters: 400,000 square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND eXP® Tile Backer; 250,000 square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND Fire-Shield® Shaftliner XP® Gypsum Panel; 200,000 square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND eXP® Interior Extreme® Gypsum Panel; and 3.5 million square feet of Gold Bond® BRAND 5/8” XP® Fire-Shield® Gypsum Board.
