The LHCb vertex detector (VELO) is shielded from the LHC beam by a thin envelope called the RF box. Tight constraints on maximum thickness, vacuum tightness, conductivity and rigidity make the construction of the RF box a challenge. We discuss progress in the construction of the RF box for the upgraded VELO detector, which is planned for installation in 2018.
