|Apple's Perfectionism Slowed Construction On Its New Spaceship Campus (video) by kay2care: 12:32pm On Feb 09, 2017|
Apple's "spaceship" campus was supposed to be ready in 2015, but it now isn't expected to open until later this year. If you're wondering why the project - which started back in 2011 - is still in the works, Reuters may have part of the answer: Apple is being ridiculously perfectionist about it.
Reuters spoke with about two dozen people who worked on the project to get a sense for Apple's behavior. And the picture it paints is one of a company that values attention to detail, but also has little idea of how construction works.
One particular highlight of the report is Apple demanding that doorways be perfectly flat, with no subtle bump between the outside and inside of the building. A construction manager told Reuters that "months" were spent debating this, because they'd have to spend time and money figuring out a way to accomplish it. Apple reportedly wouldn't give in because it worried that "if engineers had to adjust their gait while entering the building, they risked distraction from their work."
