The Far Site Conventional Facilities (FSCF) of the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF) Project will be beginning their main final design in December 2016. The FSCF must provide surface and underground facilities to support the construction, installation, commissioning and operation of the large liquid argon (LAr) detector system of the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE), which will be located at the 4850 foot level at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, SD.
The purpose of this review is to evaluate the set of requirements, including interface control documents, and the set of specifications and parameters that follow from the requirements, to determine if they provide the necessary and sufficient basis for the launch of FSCF design. This includes evaluating the sufficiency of the FSCF requirements that are provided by the LBNF cryostat and cryogenics subproject and the DUNE detector project to support those parts of the project, and that they, in turn, can be traced back to the high-level scientific goals and engineering requirements of the overall LBNF/DUNE Project.
As a closing statement we would like to provide the FSCF A/E with a complete set of requirements and interfaces to which they will perform the final design that will meet the LBNF/DUNE objectives.
