G Juniper NetworksBuilding for over 60 years in Silicon Valley and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, San Jose Construction Co., Inc. (SJC) has been an integral part of the construction of the valleys most prominent corporate campuses. SJC has completed projects for many high-technology companies, including Cadence Design Systems, Oracle, Citrix Systems, Apple, LSI, and SJCs most recent corporate campus, Juniper Networks.SJC began a relationship with the premier networking company, Juniper Networks, 10 years ago with over 100 projects and one million square feet of work at its Mathilda Campus in Sunnyvale, CA. The objective of Juniper Networks Mathilda Campus was a build-to-suit master site environment to accommodate a growing workforce with state-of-the-art data centers, engineering labs, and offices.In December 2008, following work at the existing, neighboring Mathilda Campus, SJC commenced on the decommissioning, building and site demolition, hazardous materials remediation, and on-site and off-site improvements for Juniper Networks future 80 acre Global Headquarters Campus featuring 2.4 million square feet of innovation. The demolition on the former Lockheed Campus in Sunnyvale, CA included nine office, research, and manufacturing
buildings ranging from 50,000 SF to 300,000 SF for a total of 1.5 million SF. New construction consisted of relocated streets and utilities and a campus park on the brownfield site conversion.
The construction of the campus was underway with the ultimate goal of a connected campus to empower Juniper Networks and their customers. The first completed campus building was a 29,000 SF Assembly Building Sprung Structure with a seating capacity for 2,500 followed by Building II-A, an 8-story, 318,000 SF office building with state-of-the-art Executive Briefing Center, executive offices, and networking labs featuring interactive digital displays, LED e-cloud, walnut wood detailing, wool textiles, full-service cafeteria, and second floor green roof .Building II-B, II-As twin, 8-story, 318,000 SF counterpart is nearing completion along with a five-level parking structure, between them showcasing Juniper Networks commitment to sustainability with four Bloom Energy Servers, solar hot water (CoGenra) array, and photovoltaic array.

Buildings II-A and II-B are planned for LEED Gold Certification and feature a CoGenra System tied into a 208V panel board generating 2,500 gallons of hot water per day for the buildings domestic hot water system. This process is completed through 36 modules that are installed on the roof of Building II-B. In addition, PV and Bloom Energy fuel cell systems, connected to the Bloom Energy fuel cell service yard through two solar storage tank heat exchangers, generate 333kW of renewable power, while four Bloom boxes at 250kW each generate a total of 1MW of energy. Buildings II-A and II-B also feature green rooftops with live vegetation that absorbs pollutants, retains precipitation, and recycles stormwater to assist in indoor temperature cooling and heating to reduce energy costs.Juniper Networks Global Headquarters Campus project has been an amazing opportunity for SJC. The impressive design, high-quality construction standards, and teamwork have led the success of the project. SJC is honored to be a
