Despite the challenges of winter construction, the MC-1 Building continues with the installation of the bridge crane, capable of moving up to 30 tons, and the completion of the exterior siding, windows and roofing. The large slot in front of the Experimental Hall (toward the left of the picture) will be closed off with a temporary wall until the Muon g-2 storage ring is moved into the building later this year.

Work continues in the Refrigeration Room to install the cryogenic equipment in support of the Muon g-2 and Mu2e experiments. Beneficial occupancy of the Experimental Hall to start installing the ring is expected in April.
