Reportedly, Microsoft (MSFT) is renovating its headquarters in order to add 3 million square feet of space to the campus including 500,000 square feet of amenities, with 17 new buildings built across 72 acres. To add to the excitement of the employees Microsoft is using its technology which will allow an employee to see the full rendered model of the under-construction section of the campus with the help of their phone. To design and build the campus, the technology giant is using its own products like HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality and is looking at ways to incorporate Android and IOS as fieldwork begins.
“We’ve got 40,000 employees on campus that need to know what we’re doing,” “They need to be as excited about it as we are. So a lot of work is going into evangelizing the project through this digital content as a marketing effort.” “Over the next couple of years, we will see what kind of devices need to be set, and what kind of experiences, and what are the ethics involved in that?” Donovan said. “What are the technology and personal and human limitations or opportunities related to these devices and experiences that will ultimately come to bear for our employees?” stated Microsoft Director of Real Estate and Facilities Keith Donovan
