Colliers International India’s Project Management team delivers Microsoft’s newest IDC hub in Noida

Microsoft’s India Development Center (IDC) facility at NCR will be its premier hub for research and development in North India. The project was undertaken by Colliers Project management team from its conception till closeout stage. The scope included feasibility studies, design management, procurement support, schedule management, construction management and change management.

Inspired by the iconic Taj Mahal, the three floors were conceptualized to capture the essence of its scale, artistry and symmetry while still delivering a modern intelligent workspace of innovation. The project utilized modern construction technology and local artisans to build intricate forms of Corian clad arches, ply domes, gypsum vaults, CNC cut lattice work and in-situ marble inlays. The result was an atypical corporate fit-out that echoed Microsoft’s ethos of diversity, inclusivity and sustainability. The facility was delivered well within timelines despite the onslaught of a global pandemic which impacted resource and material supply chains.

The Colliers Site Team overcame all challenges while adhering to strict Covid protocols, implementing EHS wellbeing measures and even introducing post-Covid value-additions like touch-free doors, chemical filtration systems, and sensor-based accessories into the design program.
