ALMA's Operational Support Facility

Aerial shot of the Operational Support Facility (OSF) for the ALMA. 

The OSF is and will continue to be, in many aspects, the centre of activities of the ALMA project. Focus of the activities will change as ALMA achieves several and quite different objectives of the entire project. Presently it is the area where all ALMA Site contractors and their staff are accommodated. Special camps have been erected and by now can accommodate the maximum required capacity of 500 workers.
