Technical Infrastructure Section

The Technical Infrastructure, or TI, section operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year monitoring CERN's infrastructure.

We look after the Technical Infrastructure of what is known as machine buildings. These are buildings which house accelerators, experiments and other important or critical installations like the Computer Centre.


Technical Infrastructure systems include:

  • the electrical distribution network
  • heating, cooling, ventilation and air conditioning equipment
  • fire and gas detection
  • environmental water monitoring stations
  • and much more…

Call us on 72201 before any technical intervention on these systems!


For non-urgent requests, you can email us. Any other matters related to the infrastructure or not should be directed to the Service Desk (77777).
