Work is progressing on the 6,000 m² Assembly Building work site as 1,400 tonnes of reinforcement steel (rebar) are being laid on the blinding concrete prior to the pouring of the "reinforced concrete foundation."

This concrete slab, 2.2 metres thick at the perimeter and 1.2 metres thick in the centre, will support the 57-metre high steel structure of the building as well as the assembling tools that will be installed inside it.

As took place in the Tokamak Seismic Pit, the execution of the Assembly Building foundation has been divided into plots and concrete pouring, which began on Thursday 20 Septembre, will be done sequentially. Steel reinforcement for the last plot is to be completed around February 2013.
