FAIR civil construction

The new FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) international accelerator center that is being built at GSI is one of the largest research projects worldwide. The construction work began in 2017. The construction site is located to the east of the present-day GSI complex, whose existing accelerators will be used as the first acceleration stage in the future.

FAIR is one of the world’s largest and most complex construction projects. Information about the progress of construction and the unique building structures.

Here you can find current photos and videos of the FAIR construction site, such as updated drone videos showing the construction activities.

Environmental compensation measures and accompanying projects ensure that the construction project’s impact on the surroundings are being kept to a minimum.


A comprehensive traffic concept has been drawn up for the entire construction period. The concept regulates parking, the use of the access road routes and the traffic through the forests and open areas around the construction site.
