Monday was Moving Day!



"Wow!" pronounced with many different accents was the expression of the day this Monday 8 October, as 114 staff and contractors moved into their new offices in the recently completed ITER Headquarters building.

"Wow" because of the view—spectacular in all directions; "Wow" because of the offices, clear and wide; and "Wow" also for the excitement of turning an important page in the story of ITER, now completely at home in a building designed by one of France's most brilliant architects.

The ITER staff and contractors who moved in on Monday are the avant-garde of a larger migration. By the end of November, half the ITER team will have settled in the new building.

A tremendous job was done over the weekend by the movers, by ITER Building and Site Infrastructure personnel and by the IT team.

Everyone found the boxes they had packed on Friday neatly stored in their respective new offices. Computers were connected and after many "Wows" had been uttered, life—that is, work—resumed as on an almost normal day.
