The seminar reflects on the many activities that South African and partner teams are engaged in that form part of setting up the Karoo site to host the SKA telescopes. The engineering challenges, directed by the science goals, regularly push the teams into unchartered waters. Functional, deadline-driven dialogue between international partners, where contractors have to watch their profit lines, sets part of the boundaries. The presentation will be illustrated with some contemporary developments, which will be related to broader SKA project progress, especially with respect to aperture arrays, development metrology, deployment and lightning/RFI protection.
