A EUR 40 million contract for the construction of  the permanent ITER Headquarters has been awarded by Agence ITER France to the French public works enterprise Léon Grosse, and Axima, a specialist in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems.
Construction is scheduled to begin this summer on the construction of the five-level ITER Headquarters Building, and two additional buildings for visitor reception, admittance and medical services.
