Sungard Receives Development Approval for A2 Data Centre

Project will provide local SA employment opportunities

The City of Charles Sturt announced this week that it has approved the development of Sungard’s A2 data centre. The approval was granted after an 8 month submission and review process that required extensive planning and due diligence. The planned development will see construction of a new data centre on land within the Sungard Kidman Park data centre campus. Overall design incorporates a modern and attractive building in keeping with the existing facility while enhancing the precinct and creating significant employment during the construction phase.

This is an important step towards building out South Australia’s information technology capabilities. The development is expected to attract high profile organisations as tenants, with opportunities for significant employment growth in the Charles Sturt area. The development is suitable as an “Industry Hub” for high tech companies, being close to Adelaide Airport, the CBD and a short drive to other technology centres.

The new 7,740 square metre facility incorporating approximately 1,000 square metres allocated for office space, conference and meeting rooms and Network Operations Centres will be purpose built to ensure that Sungard Data Centre’s current and prospective clients have sufficient future capacity to meet the growing needs of the data centre hosting market. The expansion will be in addition to the existing 6,000 sq metre data centre, Sungard’s A1 facility which was recently upgraded in July 2015, that has received positive uptake.
