ISG in Dublin fast-tracks delivery for datacentre giant

ISG’s datacentre and special projects team has completed the construction of a new two-storey datacentre in Dublin for a large US-based co-location datacentre specialist. 

The quick build was completed within an impressive 42-week timeframe, further strengthening ISG’s relationship with the client as they look to expand across Europe. 

The project involved delivering two 3MW data halls, which form part of the second of four phases of development on the client’s Profile Park Campus in Clondalkin, Dublin.

The high-specification datacentre includes indirect adiabatic air-cooling systems, and advanced resilient power solutions. 

The team’s first endeavour in Ireland hasn’t been without its challenges. 

There were some unexpected challenges regarding procurement, supply chain and the unpredictable Irish weather.

Project manager, Bill Burke, commented: “We suffered from a site shut down for almost five days - due to heavy snow fall - and were further stalled by high winds throughout late March and early April.

“Despite the challenges faced, the team rose to the occasion and delivered a fast-track high-quality result through constant collaboration and communication with the client, local contractors and the team.”

Warren Pickance, divisional director for ISG’s Engineering Services’ datacentre and special projects team, added: "Our datacentre client is a global leader in co-location and cloud services, and we have worked incredibly hard to forge an excellent partnership based on the quality and consistency of our service delivery.

“At ISG, we thrive in the delivery of highly-technical environments. 

“Our engineering-led construction approach has allowed us to demonstrate our value in the Irish market – which has significant growth potential – putting us in an excellent position to capitalise on the market.”

The team was also recently awarded an £9 million contract to deliver a 3MW data hall at the client’s Crawley Campus – ISG’s second project at the campus.
