Pipes Running Through Google's Seattle Office

Joe Beda, a Senior Staff Software Engineer at Google, posted a picture of unusual construction taking place at the Google Seattle office the other day. You can see this pipe, duct work, going right through the middle of an office space into the floor above and below.

Joe said, "Construction in the Seattle Google office or worst fireman's pole ever?"

It is funny but very weird.

He posted the picture on Google+.

Someone on a lower floor got a woodburning stove installed in their cube? Sounds cozy.

Old stuffy corporation install their ductwork as out-of-the-way as possible...but not at Google...we are wacky, our duct work goes through the middle of the floor. Grab your wacky sun glasses and check out our new wacky ductwork.

They have exposed concrete and ducts anyway. I guess they are just saving money by not building walls around it.

Can't Google use codes to construct "pipeless " connections and "pillar-less" offices so that Google's office spaces do not have to be littered with pipes and pillars
