Analog Devices campus wins top prize at Construction Excellence Awards

The Analog Devices team celebrate their win at the Irish Construction Excellence Awards.

ANALOG Devices’ Raheen campus has been awarded the title of Project of the Year at the Irish Construction Excellence (ICE) Awards.

The company’s newest semiconductor fabrication plant took the top award at the ICE awards, after a €630million investment in the new plant in Raheen, which is set to triple the company’s wafer production and significantly boost employment in the Mid West.

The awards celebrate excellence and best practices across the construction industry by showcasing achievements in various disciplines, including architectural and engineering design, as well as project execution.

The new Analog project, which aimed to increase wafer production by 350 per cent, also included sub-projects including fitting out 1,400 square meters of unoccupied space into cleanrooms, upgrading plant facilities, including chillers and cooling towers, and installing over 200 new high-precision tools for producing 60-nanometer semiconductor chips.

Managing Director of Global Manufacturing and Corporate Facilities at Analog Devices, Niall Dillon, said that the prize is recognition of the work that has gone into the company’s new facility.

“Taking home the top prize is wonderful recognition of the effort that the team has put into the project over the last couple of years,” Mr Dillon said.

This year also marks the anniversary of a 40-year ongoing partnership between Analog Devices and Sisk, who have worked together on site developments in Raheen from concept design to tool installation and commissioning, “contributing to the continuous growth and innovation at Analog Devices,” a statement from the company said.
