NVIDIA has been constructing its new headquarters for a while now, and we’re still 5 months away from completion so that their 2500 employees can have a new home to work.
The company has spent $370 million on the new HQ, which spans 46,500 square meters, and is split into two floors. The entire building is centralized, which has all of the underground garage through to the toilets being accessible from the center of the building. NVIDIA did this, so that they could “capture the energy and the buzz of the company”.
NVIDIA has watercooled the entire building, where they’re using recycled water that will be piped into a tower sunk under the roof of the building, and will cool the building through “an evaporation system with three giant fans”. NVIDIA CEO and founder Jensen Huang will not have an office, and will work across different buildings in various places instead.
