"The user accommodation rooms will be so good that we’re worried our users won’t want to leave,” says Alexis Kouts from the Synchrotron’s Major Projects and Technical Services Group.

Although the user accommodation won’t be finished till 2012, several of the other new building facilities at the Australian Synchrotron are close to completion. The National Centre for Synchrotron Science has an upper floor and walls on three sides, cables are being installed inside the extended switchroom, and the technical services building and the office extension pod are expected to be ready for staff to move in within two months. Construction of the Imaging and Medical Beamline satellite building is complete and the building will now be furnished with equipment and office furniture.
