AOL West Coast Headquarters

Palo Alto, California

AOL is an American global internet services and media company that is in the process of a major rebirth.

Howell Electric was selected to provide pre-construction services, electrical engineering, and electrical construction for AOL’s relocation to Palo Alto.

AOL’s new headquarters was aligned with a company-wide transition from a conservative corporate office to a bright new innovative place to foster the rebirth of the company.

This new facility features: large open ceilings with dramatic colors, expansive sightlines, modern furniture, and highly creative lighting. A large area of the facility has been set aside as rent free incubator space for small start-up companies to grow and intermingle with AOL engineers and employees.  The modern feel of this building has helped to recharge the entrepreneurial energy of the company.
