Compaq Visitors Center and Administration Buildings - The two 10-story administration buildings are connected by a central lobby area. Their cast-in-place concrete structures are covered with an aluminum and glass panel system that is compatible with the existing 8- to 12-year-old-campus buildings, but with a slightly modernized appearance. The precast concrete garage connects with the office buildings by means of a pedestrian bridge on the second level, in keeping with the existing “spine” system used to connect all campus buildings to parking garages.
