6 buildings stand out among world’s healthiest
Apple's new campus opens in April.
Forbes magazine has spotlighted six buildings around the world that go beyond LEED, WELL and Fitwell to push the limits of healthy buildings.
All capitalize on technology to produce sustainable power and functionality. For example, Apple’s new headquarters in California, to which employees will begin moving in April, will be surrounded by the world’s largest panels of curved glass.
The 2.8-million-square-foot campus will run entirely on renewable energy with the help of 17 MW of rooftop solar panels. Designers predict the campus will require no heating or cooling for three-quarters of the year.
