Macquarie Data Centres starts construction on its AI and Cloud data centre in Sydney
Macquarie Data Centres, part of Macquarie Technology Group has started construction on its IC3 Super West data centre after appointing prominent Australian construction company, FDC Construction (FDC) as the main building contractor. The project will bring more sovereign AI and cloud data centre capacity to Sydney.

IC3 Super West is being purpose built for high-density cloud and AI workloads, including hybrid air and liquid cooling options. The facility is the third and largest addition to the provider’s flagship Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus in Sydney’s North Zone and will bring the total campus IT load up to 63 megawatts (MW). IC3 Super West will open its doors with all end state power secured.

The new build is part of Macquarie Data Centres’ wider expansion strategy to meet the increase in demand for capacity from its hyperscale, government and enterprise customers.

IC3 Super West marks the seventh project between FDC and Macquarie Data Centres, reinforcing the companies’ longstanding partnership. Their most recent project was IC3 East, the previous addition to the Macquarie Park Data Centre Campus, which was delivered on time and on budget.

IC3 Super West will offer customers AI densities, resilient data halls, dedicated office space and storage. The large-scale project is expected to bring more than 1,200 jobs to the region. The construction cost will be circa $350 million from FY25 to practical completion of Phase 1, which will deliver the powered core and shell, as well as 6MW of IT load fitted out.
