Since Juniper Network has a commitment to sustainability, Build Group created an office that embodied just that with its 9,000 square foot green roof space, Bloom Energy, fuel cells, CoGenra solar hot water, photovoltaic arrays, and even a 2,300 square foot green living wall. It’s a state-of-the-art building, with a stunning executive briefing center, well-built networking labs, interactive digital displays, and more. It was awarded the 2013 Best Green Project and the Most Innovative Design Award from the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
