Abstract: We present the status of preparations for a major installation in the Diamond storage ring which is due to take place in 2016, namely the conversion of one cell of the ring from a double bend achromat (DBA) structure, to a double-DBA, or DDBA. We present results of measurements of the new narrow bore, high strength, quadrupoles and sextupoles, as well as the four new gradient dipoles. Fabrication of entirely new narrow-gap vacuum vessel strings, a mixture of copper and stainless steel is also described. The status of assembly of the two 7m long girders is presented, as well as other preparatory engineering, power supply, controls and high level software work.
