    • 8:00 AM 10:00 AM
      Chamber 1 initial occupancy scenario 2h
      - dimensions including tolerances, details of the finishing of the walls and floor, doors - what will be inside chamber (utilities), installed by CF (permanent and temporary utilities: lighting, ventilation, fire detection, fire protection, power distribution, grounding network, evacuation system alarm, phone and wifi …? - which of these items still need better requirements? —>action - what access is available from below? How? - Which emergency services/support we can count on during this phase (emergency, lights and electricity, ventilation, lifts, cranes, access, …)
      Speaker: Mr Tracy Lundin (Fermilab)
    • 10:00 AM 10:15 AM
      Break 15m
    • 10:15 AM 12:15 PM
      Chamber 1 cranes and lifts: fresh look, rethinking the monorails 2h
      - what functions do cryostat, cryo systems, and FD need to accomplish with cranes? - do we need for the duration of the installation of CF infrastructure, cryostat warm, cryostat cold, cryogenics, detector a set of dedicated and movable elevators? Which type? Who will be responsible? - define an action plan for all of the above
      Speaker: Jack Fowler (Duke University)

    • 1:00 PM 2:30 PM
      SURF surface and underground scenario for storage space 1h 30m
      during the construction of the first 2 cryostats and cryogenics and detectors (caverns, drifts, surface building, …)
      Speaker: Mr Joshua Willhite (Fermilab)
    • 2:30 PM 4:30 PM
      Grounding Issues 2h

  • Tuesday, 19 December
    • 8:00 AM 10:00 AM
      Scenario of the status of the logistics once cryostat #1 warm structure is constructed 2h
      - Who comes next? Which space we will have underground. How access is possible (bridges, ..) - First cold cryostat installation requirements in term of space, material lowering, logistics underground, scaffoldings, amount of people - Second warm structure assembly in parallel? Which additional requirements? - Which infrastructure should be installed at this moment in preparation of the detector installation in the first chamber? - Should mezzanine assembly come at this stage? Define responsibilities.
      Speaker: Prof. Marzio Nessi (CERN)
    • 10:00 AM 10:15 AM

    • 10:15 AM 12:15 PM
      Logistics and storage 2h
      - Cryostat steel lowering and temporary storage (underground) scenario. manipulation tools, shaft tools, draft transport tools. Define responsibilities and requirements —> action - What is underground personnel requirement during cryostat #1 warm structure construction? - Requirements for assembly & storage space in general off SURF site. Define responsibilities - Transport and logistic issues between these storage areas and SURF. Define responsibilities - Transport top of Ross shaft to underground. Define responsibilities
