The TRIUMF Kaon Factory is designed to produce beams of kaons, antiprotons, other hadrons, and neutrinos 100 times more intense, or cleaner, than are available now, for a broad range of particle and nuclear physics experiments. This will require a 100- mu A beam of 30-GeV protons, to be produced by an interleaved sequence of two fast-cycling synchrotrons and three storage rings, with the existing TRIUMF H/sup -/ cyclotron as injector. A preconstruction study has enabled the overall design to be reviewed and prototypes of various components to be built and evaluated-fast-cycling dipole and quadrupole magnets, a dual-frequency magnet power supply, ceramic beam pipes with internal RF shields, and RF cavity (using perpendicular bias), an extraction kicker, an RF beam chopper, and production targets. Environmental, industrial, and economic impact studies have also been completed and the cost estimates and schedule updated.<>
