Description: 

The Google offices in San Francisco were designed to LEED® gold certification specifications. Plyboo edge grain amber plywood was the choice in the dining area for its durability and its warm, linear appearance. Applications included tabletops, seating and divider walls between booths. 

Google has company-wide mandates specifying FSC and formaldehyde-free products in their building products, which contributed to an IEQc4.4 low-emitting materials credit and an Mrc7 wood credit.
