The  FAIR mega-construction project, Darmstadt, Germany

On a site of approximately 150,000 m2, 25 buildings are being constructed. Amongst them are an underground accelerator tunnel with 1,100 metres circumference as well as other unique buildings, that they are designed to house and operate the newly developed high-tech research facilities. The construction work began in the summer of 2017.
The construction of each tunnel section is progressing with the ring coming full circle. The excavating and securing constructions are completed.
Ion42, a consortium of the DGI Bauwerk and schneider + schumacher architects, is responsible for the design and realisation.
