Boyd Farms datacenter construction update

Microsoft is constructing the Boyd Farms datacenter starting April 1, 2024 to the Spring of 2025. The datacenter construction site is located off Zeb Haynes Road in Maiden, North Carolina.

Why datacenters are needed

Datacenters provide the physical infrastructure for the technology we depend on at work and in our personal lives. Whenever you open an app on your phone, join a virtual classroom or meeting, snap and save photos, or play a game with your friends online, you are using a datacenter. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacenters every day to deliver goods and services to you.

Construction timeline

Datacenter construction began April 1, 2024. The general contractor Morgan Construction Company is preparing the site by clearing and grading it. From there they will move into excavation work and continue construction through the Spring of 2025.

Together with our general contractor Morgan Construction Company, we will keep neighbors informed in advance of construction work.

We will keep the community up to date via our North Carolina page in our Microsoft in your community blog.
