As Google continues to expand its workforce, so has there been the need for additional office space. To date, we have completed plan reviews on nearly one dozen existing buildings of one, two and three stories, with major renovations to accommodate the new high-tech office uses associated with the Google service lines. Most of the structures have included major renovations to exiting systems, as well as installations of A-3 occupancy “Tech Talk” Cafes and complete A-2.1 assembly area Cafeteria upgrades. As Google continues to expand the boundaries of their present campus, we continue to provide additional plan review services.
