IT major Infosys has started construction of the 1.25 lakh sq feet US Education Center in Indianapolis, US.

The company is providing an initial investment of $35 million in order to transform the 70.5-acre site into an innovative training centre. Infosys’ investment will fund major infrastructure efforts as well as beautification projects, the company said.

First phase of development is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2020. Bengaluru-based IT major has retained Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf and Browning Investments to assist in the development and construction of the project site.

This training campus and residential centre for its employees — and the employees of select clients — will prepare the American workforce for the technology jobs of the future, the company said.

The US Education Center will also serve as a convening ground for the development of advanced digital technologies, it added.

The initial phase of construction will develop a training centre and allow for the accommodation of a 250-person residential facility. The finished campus is expected to include extensive walkways and green spaces as well as recreational facilities.

“Continuous learning and reskilling are core components of Infosys’ DNA and we look forward to the important role this facility will play in our efforts to train our 10,000 new American hires as well as our existing employees and those of our clients,” UB Pravin, COO, Infosys said.

In March 2018, the company opened its first US Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis and in April the company expanded its hiring plans for Indiana from 2,000 to 3,000 new jobs by the end of 2023.

Infosys has already hired more than 300 American workers in Indiana this year toward this goal.
