Things You Dont Knew About Google

Google has extraordinary on-campus day centers for employees' chidlren. It's so good, that in 2008 the company calculated that it spent $37,000 a year on each child. That's $3,000 more a semester than Stanford's computer science PhD program.

Bikes are placed around the Google campus, unlocked, for employees to use when getting from building to building. To make life a little easier, doctors are brought onto the campus so employees don't have to leave for check-ups.

To be a bit more green, Google has installed 1.6MW solar panels on the rooftops of every building on its main campus in Mountview, Calif. The 9,212 panels generate 4,475kWh each day, or the same amount of electricity used by 1,000 homes.

Instead of lawnmowers, Google rents goats from a company called California Grazing to eat and fertilize the grass of its headquarters, plus help reduce fire hazards.

Last week, Google released an architectural rendering of its next headquarters: a 1.1 million square-foot corporate campus located across town from the existing "Googleplex" in Mountain View, California. You can zoom and explore the high-resolution rendering here.

In the architect's imagination, the forthcoming "Bay View" complex will provide ample ways to exercise, such as rooftop scooter-riding, jogging, biking, and yoga class. There will also be a perfect space for reflecting on the meaning of existence. And employees who never want to leave can pitch a tent and stay the night.
