Facebook to spend US$1.6 billion on two US data centres

By Andy Brown06 April 2022

Meta, parent company of Facebook, has launched two new data centre projects in Temple, Texas and Missouri, in the US, for a combined cost of approximately US$1.6 billion.

The facility in Texas will total approximately 900,000 square feet, while the data centre in Missouri will total nearly one million square feet.

Kansas City-based J.E. Dunn Construction Group and New York City-based Turner Construction are reported to be the general contractors for each project, respectively.

The Temple data center will be the company’s 21st data center worldwide, with 17 of those in the US. Facebook’s total investment in US data centre construction and operations is estimated at approximately US$16 billion.

The building of data centres is one of the biggest trends in construction. A report by Insight Partners valued the international data centre construction market at US$43 billion, and predicted that it would rise to US$92 billion by 2025.
