Fermilab is building eighteen full length cold masses for the LHC Interaction Region inner triplets. One prototype and several production assemblies have been completed. This paper summarizes the construction details. Topics include coil fabrication, ground insulation, collaring, instrumentation, electrical testing, and final assembly. In-process measurements are presented and explained. Problems encountered during construction and their solutions are discussed.
