Following an announcement last week that Microsoft is planning a massive expansion at its Redmond campus, the corporation posted a blog entry on Tuesday laying out its vision for a remodeled Silicon Valley Campus.

The remodel will be a 643,000-square-foot modernization of Microsoft’s 32-acre Mountain View, California, campus, which houses more than 2,000 employees near San Francisco. Microsoft estimates the remodel will be complete in December 2019.

According to the blog, the goal of the remodel is to efficiently use natural resources.

This will mean designing a net zero non-potable water certification through using integrated water management systems. This will recycle non-potable water on site and include using rain water and creating an on-site wastewater treatment plant.

There will be a focus on conserving energy and using solar panels as well.

As with the Redmond campus, the Silicon Valley project will modernize workspaces in a move to promote collaboration and productivity, the blog said.

“Microsoft has been a core part of the Silicon Valley tech economy for more than 36 years, contributing to the incredible innovation and partnering with the local community to have a positive impact. The new Silicon Valley Campus will build on our legacy in the area and demonstrate our commitment to empower employees, the community and our natural resources,” Kevin Scott, Microsoft chief technology officer, said on the blog.
