Data Centre

Precast Concrete and Data Centre Capital of the World.

The Irish government and in partnership with industry leaders are working to identify Ireland as the potential data centre capital of the world.

The country is seen as an attractive location for the facilities for a range of reasons, including the cool climate, which reduces running costs for heat-generating computers, its connectivity to the US via transatlantic data cables, and a favourable data-protection regime for tech multinationals.

Precast concrete meets the high performance demands of data centres by providing cost-effective open spans, passive fire resistance, and durable, high-efficiency, low maintenance buildings. Precast concrete is a high performance material that integrates easily with other systems and inherently provides the versatility, efficiency, and resiliency needed to meet the multi-hazard requirements and long-term demands of high performance structures.

This construction project consists of

  • 21 Mega watt co-location data centre comprising of 6 individual data halls and ancillary services.
