The Assembly Building—a vast antechamber to the Tokamak Complex—will house the specialized assembly tooling required for pre-assembly operations. The 6,000 m² basemat of the Assembly Building won't be visible for long: construction begins this year on the walls of the facility, which will rise 60...
