Station Road datacentre construction overview

Microsoft is building two datacentre buildings on Station Road in Seven Hills, Western Sydney.

Why datacentres are needed

Datacentres 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 datacentre. Local businesses, government, hospitals, and schools rely on datacentres every day to deliver goods and services to you.

Construction timelines

Building one

The general contractor FDC Construction (NSW) Pty Ltd (FDC) is currently progressing the construction of the first of the two datacentre buildings on site, with the construction estimated to be completed by July 2023. Completion of construction does not indicate datacenter operation/availability.

With major structural works completed on the building, crews on site have been focusing on the internal buildout. Work also progresses to building the carpark, walkway and the landscaping around the building. To ensure availability of parking by the construction site, contractors are not permitted to park along McCoy Street.  A traffic controller is enforcing this daily.

FDC continues to liaise with neighbours to provide early notice of disruptive works and ensure compliance with the Noise & Vibration Management Plan approved by the Blacktown Council.

We thank the community for their patience and understanding as we complete this work.

Building two

The general contractor Taylor Construction Group Pty Ltd (Taylor) will start works on the second datacentre building in June 2023. Datacentre construction is expected to be completed by late 2024. Completion of construction does not indicate datacenter operation/availability.

Traffic control managers will be stationed daily at the entrance of the site on Station Road to help ensure that traffic flow is maintained and that public parking near the site remains accessible for local residents and businesses.

Together with FDC and Taylor, Microsoft is committed to working with the Seven Hills community to minimise disturbance to neighbours during the construction period.
