Building design for high beam-power facilities, the example of SPIRAL 2

Abstract : The buildings and their equipments associated to the nuclear engineering play a crucial role for a successful operation of high beam-power facilities. They also represent the biggest part of the facility total investment cost and are frequently the critical path in the construction planning. The management of the building and conventional facility design and construction is a complex task including many aspects : set up of the functional and technical specifications for buildings, radiation shielding, remote handling, electrical power distribution, cooling system..., definition of the interfaces between the accelerator and experimental equipments and the buildings, selection of the building prime contractor, task sharing between the accelerator and physicist teams and the building prime contractor, infrastructures optimization up to the final detailed design... These topics will be discussed taking SPIRAL 2 as example.
