Sustainable buildings, by design
In 2011, we moved our headquarters to the former Sun Microsystems campus in Menlo Park, California, right on the beautiful San Francisco Bay. We designed our retrofit of the eight buildings to achieve LEED Gold certification for Commercial Interiors. Our improvements include using water-saving fixtures and appliances and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood wherever feasible, LED lighting, high tech lighting controls that reduce lighting demand and a sophisticated energy management system to reduce heating, ventilation and air conditioning loads. The roofs of these buildings support a 1.2-megawatt photovoltaic array. In 2016, we plan to build a 2.2-megawatt solar carport system in our parking lot.
