New Confidential Data Center with an Improved Power Usage Effectiveness and an Overall IT Capacity of 30MV 

Two IT professionals working on a data server
The Mission Critical Team of Hoare Lea, part of the Tetra Tech High Performance Buildings Group, has been appointed as the mechanical, engineering, and plumbing (MEP) data center consultant to provide MEP Stage 2 and 3 design packages to launch a brand-new data center facility in the Republic of Ireland.


The client is a highly reputable international infrastructure developer with a focus on providing large-scale sustainable assets, supporting the growing demand for data infrastructure capacity while respecting the environment.

The data center project building consists of a two-story building accommodating data halls of 7.5 megawatts (MW) each, bringing the overall information technology (IT) capacity to 30 MW.


Tetra Tech has supported the client throughout the Stage 2 feasibility study and Stage 3 developed design. We have provided the client with mission-critical expert advice, which has had an impact on the overall design specification.

Stage 3 is supported by a BIM 360 model, internal and external thermal simulations, and a complete Employer’s Requirements package.


Our team made major design improvements through a main electrical configuration and resilience levels, a mechanical cooling airflow strategy, and complex but effective fire suppression solutions.

Our major design change proposals reduced overall initial investment, risk, and operational and maintenance costs.
