In 2011 NWA were commissioned by DLR to master plan a 10 acre site in Dublin to deliver a campus comprising of four buildings with a total IT area of 8,000m².

The first phase, completed in 2014, included a 10MVA substation and delivered 2 data halls (1000m²/1920kW each), office space and plant areas. Cooling is by IAC units laid on the side of the halls, generators are mounted on the roof. DUB13 achieved BREEAM Excellent and is Tier III certified.

 

A second data hall building, Dub 14, was completed in 2018. It added 2x3MWA data halls, office and ancillary space to the existing offer. The cooling was again by IAC units, and generators were mounted on the roof.
