Thiruvananthapuram: Thiruvananthapuram-based US Technology has charted a mega expansion plan by building a 16-lakh square feet campus adjacent to the Technopark as a part of upgrading itself as the largest IT hub in Kerala, says a Business Standard report.

The campus, to be spread across 36 acres of land, would house 12,000 employees. The provider of end-to-end IT services for Fortune 500 companies, currently employs over 4,000 associates. With the upcoming campus, the U.S Technology space would become one among the largest IT hubs for a single company in Kerala, a company spokesperson told BS.

The final plan for the campus comes more than a year after the officials and then the chief minister of Kerala signed the agreement for the land. The Kerala government under the former UDF chief minister Oomen Chandy had allotted land for the campus in 2006.

The campus that will be ready in three phases will become operational by December 2008.

“The campus would represent our commitment to making Kerala a hub for IT services excellence,” Sajan Pillai, President and Chief Operating Officer, U.S. Technology told BS.

The campus will feature connected buildings that enable people to work together easily. Informal meeting and reflection spaces will be accommodated by pavilions in the external environment and will be operated round-the-clock.
