Hello @gilleau 

Possibly, but I would not recommend it. Google/Nest WiFi are designed to be used in typical home environments. In In the Google Home app, each "home" can only have one Google/Nest WiFi system, and each Google account can only have five "home" instances. In addition to those issues, they will all be sharing a single 5GHz WiFi channel, but since they would be different networks, client devices would not "hand off" nicely between them. Instead, they'll tend to "stick" to a previously working network as long as possible before giving up and switching to a new one. So, as people move around this large building, they may have trouble holding connections. I would recommend using a system that is designed for larger scale installations like this.

Technically, 5 points can be added to each system. But, they will really all need to be close enough to the primary to get a strong 5GHz connection to it.

Generally, the total number of points in a single system is five.
