BANGALORE: IT services major Infosys, which is on a massive expansion spree, is likely to have its own campus in Thiruvanathapuram in a year or two. N Radhakrishnan Nair, CEO, Technopark campus, who is part of the Kerala delegation at BangaloreIT.in said that the company would have its own campus in the city. “Starting November, Infosys will begin construction of its campus and has taken up 50 acres of land. It plans to have 2.5 million square feet of space that can seat more than 5000 people,” he said.

In the first phase of construction, around 600,000 sq feet of built space will be completed. “The catalyst for the Infosys’ interest in Kerala is the COO Kris Gopalakrishnan who hails from Thiruvananthapuram,” said Nair.

At present, Infosys has more than 500 people working at its facility in Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram. In May this year, senior Infosys executives including Kris Gopalakrishnan met with Kerala CM V S Achuthanandan to discuss their growth plans in Kerala.

The Technopark in Thiruvananthapuram houses 110 companies and 12,500 people. In the next six months, the number of employees is expected to touch 20,000.

Another initiative by the Kerala Government is an integrated township for the IT sector called Technocity. This project would be a private-public partnership involving 500 acres of land very close to the existing Technopark. The land acquisition is expected to happen in the next one year.
