The principal offices of the General Electric Company comprise the executive offices and the offices of the Engineering, Commercial, Law, Patent, Auditing, Production and Purchasing Departments. The present office building, a five-story brick structure, was first occupied in the summer of 1902. It is equipped with elevators, mail and telegram chutes, telegraph stations, pneumatic tubes and telephone exchange, including more than 500 instruments, and a restaurant. The offices require about 96,000 square feet in the office building, and an additional 28,000 square feet in an adjoining building.
