Data Centre


Categories: Data Centre


This commercial development project consisted of three single-storey data centres, split into three phases on a 95 hectacre (Ha) greenfield site in Clonee, Co Meath, Ireland. The data centre buildings include roof top mechanical equipment and measure up to 8.6m to the roof eaves, with a parapet wall up to 9.1m and a roof mounted plant screen wall around roof mechanical equipment up to 15.9m. The site infrastructure includes access roads, car parking, internal roads, entrance security hut, landscaping and a 220kV substation. This case study provides insight into integrated lean-BIM implementation on a Data Centre project in Dublin, Ireland, constituting highly modular off-site production. The project effectively acted as a system comprising of hundreds of such off-site modules. Hence, the team had to factor in each micro-level-detail of logistics, production pace, resources, and other potential constraints.


  • Working on height
  • Delay in handovers
  • Latency in progress update

  • VisiLean dynamically linked production plans to the 3D BIM model improving trade handovers to track activities in real-time.
  • A regimented process in collaboration with the supply chain ensured strict discipline in the planning, scheduling, and control processes.
  • VisiLean as a Lean and BIM integrated system replaced the traditional sticky notes with a systematic planning and execution system.


  • 60% reduction in project defects
  • 45% reduction in labour spend in the entire project
