A high-tech firm sees the light with a Net Zero Energy design.
There is a difference between having a big reach and having a big footprint. Shipwire designs software that aligns worldwide shipping logistics, so naturally the company has a far-reaching perspective when it comes to workplace sustainability and flexibility. When they leased the RMW-designed Net Zero Energy-retrofit office building at 435 Indio Way, Sunnyvale, Shipwire signed on for a highly sustainable interior build-out, and RMW delivered. Individual benched workstations are paired with glass-enclosed meeting spaces to keep things light and airy. Shipwire’s employees like to meet spontaneously, a work style that’s supported by lots of whiteboard surfaces and a variety of collaborative spaces. The interior finishes are honest and simple, with touches of color that glow beneath the 43 skylights. The employee break room opens onto a back patio with bocce ball and raised-bed vegetable gardens. For a forward-thinking tech company, this interior build-out is the whole package.
