Meta Awards Hensel Phelps Montgomery Data Center

MONTGOMERY, AL — Meta has awarded Hensel Phelps the contract for an over $800 million data center in Montgomery, Alabama. This project represents a substantial investment in the region’s tech infrastructure, with the facility set to join Meta’s existing Alabama data center campus in Huntsville.

The Montgomery data center, spanning 715,000 square feet and designed to be AI-optimized, will become Meta’s 24th data hub and 20th in the United States. The construction of the Montgomery data center is expected to generate over 1,000 jobs at its peak, providing a significant economic boost to the region. Scheduled for completion by the end of 2026, the facility is expected to achieve LEED Gold certification and will be supported by 100 percent renewable energy.

Meta’s dedication to fostering positive impacts within its data center communities resonates with one of Hensel Phelps’ Core Values: Community. This is Hensel Phelps’ second campus with Meta, reaffirming Hensel Phelps’ commitment to supporting Meta’s data center endeavors across the United States.

The recent acquisition of the Montgomery Data Center project stands as a significant milestone for Hensel Phelps as it expands its portfolio within the mission-critical market sector. Hensel Phelps' support for the Meta data center will contribute to the growth and prosperity of Montgomery and beyond.
