HP opens its new headquarters lobby and Executive Briefing Center
HP today officially opened its new headquarters lobby and Executive Briefing Center, a 37,700-square-foot addition to its existing headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif. The addition, designed by Gensler and constructed by Rudolph and Sletten, features transparent floor-to-ceiling glass with cable-net curtain wall detail and is erected around a California Heritage Oak tree and courtyard. The Executive Briefing Center is currently awaiting LEED-CI Platinum certification and aligns with HP’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions from HP-owned and HP-leased facilities by 20 percent relative to 2005 levels by the end of 2013.
The HP Executive Briefing Center provides an immersive experience across the breadth of HP’s innovative solutions, products and services. It helps HP customers around the world gain better knowledge of HP’s technological capabilities and displays the company’s commitment to its sustainability goals. The HP Executive Briefing Center is powered by energy from renewable resources and is designed to use less potable water and up to 50 percent less irrigation water.
