- NEXTDC have previously worked with Multiplex on two data centres
- Greenbox will design the facility
NEXTDC have appointed construction company Multiplex to deliver the first stage of the S3 data centre in Sydney’s lower North Shore.
Multiplex have previously delivered many projects for NEXTDC including two hyperscale data centres with one being P2 Perth which is a 20MW facility in the CBD along with S2 Sydney which is a 30MWW facility in Macquarie Park.
P2 was finished in a record time of 18 months back in July 2020 and currently provides 10,000 square metres of technical space alongside providing 20 megawatts of power to the Western Australian economy.
The new centre will be located at 2 Broadcast Way, Artarmon and will feature a gross floor area of approximately 34,000 square metres across eight storeys.
The facility is set to deliver over 20,000 square metres of IT space and will comprise of 26,770 square metres of data halls and ancillary infrastructure.
Architects Greenbox will design the facility which is set to be the third and largest NEXTDC data centre in Sydney, interconnecting with the existing S1 and S2 Sydney data centres.
“We are thrilled to be appointed to this innovative project and continue our ongoing partnership with NEXTDC.”
“We’re excited to draw upon our experience building ground-breaking high-rise data centres and help expand NEXTDC’s world-class operation of data centres across Australia.”
David Ghannoum, Multiplex NSW Managing Director
Construction is underway with the facility set to be fully operational during the second half of the next financial year.
NEXTDC said the S3 facility will champion various environmentally sustainable design features which include a reduced energy consumption cooling system. To reduce power consumption and optimise efficiency levels, the building will incorporate ‘free cooling’ when appropriate.
