Apple Campus - Cupertino

Apple Campus, Cupertino

Cupertino, California, located close to San Francisco, is home to the headquarters of American technology company Apple. The building was designed by British architect Norman Foster, who realized the idea of an oversized ring in connection with the former Apple Campus at Infinite Loop No. 1 in Cupertino.

At a diameter of almost half a kilometre (461 m), the building complex offers a gigantic usable area of 260,000 m2 and space for 12,000 employees. The ring contains a 130,000 m2 park with rest areas, cafés, sports facilities and a rainbow-coloured festival stage, which was inaugurated by Lady Gaga in 2018. Powered entirely by renewable energy,
the building features a 17-megawatt rooftop solar energy system and energy-efficient evaporative cooling from Condair.


Evaporative Cooler

Significant energy saving

Indirect evaporative cooling reduces the power requirement of a cooling machine for mechanical cooling.
Conventional cooling machines and cooling batteries can therefore be designed to be significantly smaller and more cost-effective.

In addition to this, the ongoing operating costs for building cooling are reduced.
