Google retained Cornerstone Earth Group, Inc. to provide environmental services for the development of a new office campus in Sunnyvale, CA. The two planned five-story buildings combined will consist of more than 1 million square feet of office space. The buildings will have a unique design with stepped, sloped, green roofs and facades, with fixed geometrically intricate shading devices. The two buildings will be connected by pedestrian bridges.
Google is working in partnership with the Santa Clara Valley Water District to enhance the portion of the Sunnyvale West Channel that extends across the site as a part of the larger Sunnyvale East and West Channels Flood Protection Project. The planned channel enhancements will include reconfiguring the channel geometry, widening the channel, creating wetland and riparian habitats, multi-use path and maintenance access, and transitional landscape areas along the channel.
