The MC-1 Building project met another major milestone by achieving beneficial occupancy of its experimental hall on April 10. This allows Fermilab employees and subcontractors to work in the hall while the rest of the building is being completed. The lab took beneficial occupancy of the refrigeration room in January, and the remainder of the building will be complete next month.
Subcontractors for the Accelerator Division Cryogenics Department have already started installing the final section of cryo piping that connects the refrigeration room equipment to the AZero compressor building. Once this work is complete, the Muon g-2 project will start installing the bottom yoke steel of the storage ring.
The Muon g-2 ring, currently stored outside the Meson Detector Building, will make its final move to its permanent home in the lower level of the experimental hall later this summer.
