Progress has been made on NEXTDC's S3 data center, it has been announced. Multiplex, the company working on the development, has outlined that it has begun 'topping out' the structure in the Artarmon on Sydney's lower North Shore. The facility spans 26,770 square meters of data halls and ancillary infrastructure across eight storeys, with space for 20,000 square metres of IT space.

Designed by Greenbox, the facility has sustainable design features and is the company's third in Sydney, offering interconnection with its other two data centers: S1 and S2. The data center also includes a cooling system, with 'free cooling' to reduce energy consumption and maximize efficiency, and is the company's largest facility to date. 

Multiplex New South Wales regional managing director David Ghannoum, said: "We are delighted to continue our ongoing collaboration with NEXTDC, reaching this fantastic milestone on Sydney's newest data centre following the successful delivery of S2 Sydney and P2 Perth."

NEXTDC chief operating officer Simon Cooper added: "This is an important milestone as S3 is a crucial digital infrastructure asset for NSW. We couldn't be happier with construction progress to date, despite the adverse health and weather conditions which our project team has navigated safely and effectively."
