John Sisk & Son (Sisk) has been named as the main contractor for the first two phases of Vantage Data Centers flagship Ireland campus (DUB1) at Profile Park in Dublin.

The first two phases comprise 52MW of IT capacity, with the first phase expected to be operational in late 2024.

DUB1 campus

Located on 22 acres, the two first phases of the campus will consist of one 32MW facility and one 20MW facility, with the first phase expected to be operational in late 2024. The campus is being built in alignment with Vantage’s sustainable blueprint. The Dub-1 campus will include an on-site 100MVA multi-fuel generation plant capable of running a combination of fuels, primarily hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO).



Sisk has been leading an on-site initiative around waste and plastic management in conjunction with waste contractors Thorntons/Waste Matters, as well as its supply chain partner Kirby. The site also aims to become the first Zero-Plastic-to-Landfill certified construction project, a process being put in place by the site team and Responsible Plastics Management (RPM).

The certification will include third-party auditing of the site, looking at how the project aims to reduce plastic coming to site, good segregation practices on site and, ultimately, how plastic coming from the project is managed by Sisk’s waste contractors ensuring that the plastic does not end up in landfill.


Sisk sustainable practices

Sisk has recycled nearly one tonne of soft plastics and cardboard since January 2024.

Donal McCarthy, Chief Operating Officer, Data, Life Sciences & Tech, Sisk, said: “Sisk is pleased to announce our role as the main contractor for the initial two phases of Vantage’s leading Irish campus. Leveraging our experience in delivering large-scale data centres across Ireland and Europe, we are well-positioned to deliver a cutting-edge data centre for our client. Additionally, our on-site team has introduced impressive sustainable practices, such as segregating and processing polystyrene directly on site, a first for Sisk. We will be creating a world-class campus and leaving a lasting legacy for the communities surrounding Grange Castle.”
