The Beamline Project Office (BPO) coordinates the design and installation of beamlines at MAX IV – from the very early stage of forming a concept to the first light on a sample. The construction of each individual beamline is carried out as a project with a project manager responsible for the development of technical solutions to reach the scientific goals within the allocated time and budget.

Apart from having a supervising and coordinating role, BPO serves as the spokesperson for the beamline projects towards other parts of the MAX IV organisation. BPO also supports the project managers by establishing standards and processes as well as allocating internal and external resources.

An important role of BPO is to coordinate the procurement, design and engineering of installations that are similar across many different beamlines, such as insertion devices, frontends, radiation safety hutches, control rooms, ventilation and cabling.

BPO is also home to various specialists working in areas such as X-ray optics design and manufacturing, and insertion devices.
