TCS adds 8,000,000 SF in Trivandrum

Two-and-a-half years ago, I had reported that Tata Consultancy Services was setting up the world's single largest technology campus in Technocity, by establishing its Global Learning and Development Campus, in essence a residential University for 16,000 trainees at a time (up to 64,000 each year). Now more details and the first renderings of the mammoth project have emerged.

Spread over a whopping 8,000,000 SF (that's as much space as the much-touted but ultimately still-born "Smart" City project promised to create over 10 years) on 97 acres of land and costing Rs 3,600 Crores ($720 Million), the giant campus will train every employee that TCS recruits from across the world.

Oh yes, right across the road will be the approximately 3,000,000 SF Infosys Campus II, where they will accommodate 24,000 employees. Not to mention the 1,000,000 SF that Suntech is putting up next door.

Enjoy the first two prelimiinary renderings and stay tuned for more!

  1. thank you for choosing my photos of your city. We
    are just back to France after a fantastic stay close
    to Trivandrum. Nice city, but needs less garbage on the roads. We loved Kerala



Thanks for your comment, I will take a look at it and put it up at the earliest.
