Our engineer is preparing to perform a density test to determine the degree of fill compaction at Midpoint@237, an office and manufacturing campus in the Silicon Valley “Golden Triangle.” Cornerstone was originally retained by real estate developer 𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗺𝗺𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗖𝗿𝗼𝘄 to provide geotechnical engineering services. Cornerstone continues to provide geotechnical services at this site for 𝗚𝗼𝗼𝗴𝗹𝗲.
The new campus consists of five parcels, totaling approximately 57 acres, and includes three Class A advance manufacturing buildings totaling about 600,000 square feet and four office/R&D buildings. Planned campus improvements include a new pedestrian and bike bridge over Nortech Parkway that would create access between the two buildings on one side of the parkway with the three buildings on the other side. The structures are designed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
