“We are building the kind of space we need for the future. We’re building for the employees here now and the eighth graders who will be here one day,” said Michael Ford, general manager of Global Real Estate and Facilities. “In the past, the employee had to flex to the space. Now, the space flexes to the employee.”

The refresh will, of course, be infused with technology, but more important to Microsoft is the employee experience. It will include:

  • Apps for wayfinding, parking, intracampus shuttles, transit, and even placing lunch orders
  • Driverless vehicle parking/pickup points
  • A cricket pitch
  • Potentially a food-growing program heated by the buildings servers

Similar projects will be undertaken in Ireland, Israel, Silicon Valley, Brazil and elsewhere.
