Following many months of working together in partnership with UK Membranes (Geosynthetic Installer), JUTA UK GP® membranes were selected to provide the foundation for future proofing the development.

JUTA UK commented: “ We are always striving to adapt to project demands, and stay at the forefront of product development by staying intimately involved with the various standards authorities.”

The Facebook project is split over two phases and is planned to run through until early 2018. Phase one will deliver two buildings with a gross floor area of 50,800 square meters, including eight data halls and office space.

Over 50,000 m2 of JUTA UK GP® geomembranes are being utilised in phase one.

Ireland has been home to Facebook’s international headquarters since 2009. The centre forms part of Facebook’s continued development into improving technology and future-proofing the multiple platforms. JUTA UK is the leading supplier of gas protection geomembranes into the UK and ROI.

Our customers always see the added value of JUTA UK products; from the comprehensive Technical support at desk study right through to site implementation, to the high quality of materials, manufactured to meet the specific requirements of the demanding construction environment.

It will feature the latest server, storage and network designs developed through the Open Compute Project, and will be powered by 100 percent renewable energy”.
