Nvidia Steel Megaframe with triangles everywhere

Devcon Construction has built some of Silicon Valley’s most innovative structures, but its work extends far beyond the tech industry, with a diverse portfolio of nonprofit, institutional and large-scale development projects.

One of Devcon’s most exciting current projects is the $800-million Nvidia corporate campus in Santa Clara, Calif. For the first phase of this project, which was completed in September, Devcon built a complicated, triangular-shaped structure with 500,000 sq ft of below-grade parking and 500,000 sq ft of above-grade office space.

“Normally we build typical rectangular office buildings, but this is a big triangular structure, with a heart shape in the middle and hard cladding that is solid aluminum with perforated panels over a huge, steel megaframe with triangles everywhere,” says Daisy Pereira, Devcon project manager for Nvidia. She says they used Trimble software and BIM extensively to accurately construct the myriad angles on the design-build job.
