The new Zeiss Innovation Center in Dublin, California started construction this week. Of course, this depends on what your definition of the start of construction is. To me, this is when you have work crews on site.
We are getting a brand new building that will combine the US operations of several Zeiss divisions. It will be some time before the construction will be complete, but I am looking forward to teaching in my new classrooms already.
The lot has sat empty for so long that a seasonal wet zone had developed over time. If you look at the picture of the sign above, you will see that the wet zone area will be integrated into the landscaping around our building.
You will most likely be seeing regular posts about the construction process as I will be keeping a close eye on it. The new building is being built only a couple blocks away from our current office so I can take regular walks to check it out and take pictures.
On some days I will take a slightly different route to or from work so I can check on the progress on a regular basis. I don’t want to miss a picture opportunity 🙂
