Two years will be necessary to build the ITER Headquarters.
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 Headquarters building, and two additional buildings for visitor reception, admittance and medical services. The  20,000-square-metre project was conceived by local architects Rudy Ricciotti and Laurent Bonhomme.
Léon Grosse is currently completing the International School of Manosque.
