According to the resource Macnn, referring to the informed sources, Apple is changing the main contractors for the construction of Apple Campus 2. In Cupertino have decided to refuse the services of companies Skanska and DPR who built the frame of the building with a circular architecture. It is believed that the new contractors will affect the timing of completion of construction of the campus.
Soon Skanska USA collapsed and DPR construction. As told the head of the Skanska Richard Cavallar, companies are unable to reach agreement during the discussion of the revised scopes of work”. The local media reaction to this event was predictable: like shift change at the facilities of such a scale is a risky practice and involves some difficulties in the construction process, “office space” worth several billion dollars.
The construction of the second campus began last year. At the moment the construction is in the active phase: the site is a large number of building materials and machinery.
Apple Campus 2 will look like a space ship from a science fiction film. It is a circular building, the construction of which will be used the most modern materials and technologies. The four-storey construction to 13,000 people will be complementary to the current office on the street Infinite Loop, for 2 800. Corporate town Apple will occupy 2.8 million square meters.
The completion of Apple Campus 2 was planned for the end of next year. Due to the replacement of two contractors are the chances that the campus will open doors no earlier than 2017.
