Abstract title

In complement to the largely site-independent accelerator science and technology study for Future Circular Colliders (FCC), the infrastructure necessary for implanting such machines in the neighbourhood of CERN is being studied, together with their operational aspects as part of the future accelerator complex. Main issues identified and progress made on possible solutions since the kick-off of the study in February 2014 will be presented, in domains as diverse as geology and civil engineering, utilities, cryogenic refrigeration, control concepts, machine integration, logistics and installation, reliability and availability, power and energy consumption as well as conventional and radiological safety.
