Apple’s “spaceship” campus is almost finished




THE last work of Apple’s mercurial co-founder, the late Steve Jobs, is about to be unveiled – and it could be his most extraordinary achievement yet.

The company’s sprawling new headquarters in Cupertino, California, has been built with astonishing attention to detail.

The tech giant’s HQ in Cupertino, California, will be home to over 14,000 employees

From the arrangement of electrical wiring to the finish of a hidden pipe, no aspect of the 2.8million-square-foot main building has been too small to attract scrutiny.

But constructing a building as flawless as a hand-held device is no easy feat, according interviews with nearly two dozen current and former workers on the project, most of whom would not be named because they signed non-disclosure agreements.

Since Apple unveiled its plans in 2011, the completion date has slowly moved forward.

Jobs’ initial projection was 2015 but this spring now seems most likely according to those involved in the project. A lengthy approval process with the city contributed to the delay.

The campus is estimated to have cost more than £4billion.

Apple has not revealed the total price tag, but former project managers estimate it at about $5billion (£4billion) – a figure CEO Tim Cook did not dispute in a 2015 TV interview. More than $1billion was allocated for the interior of the main building alone, according to a former construction manager.

For all the time and money sunk into the project, some in the architecture community question whether Apple has focused on the right ends.

The campus is something of an exception to the trend of radically open offices aimed at fostering collaboration, said Louise Mozingo, a professor and chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at U.C. Berkeley.
