National Synchrotron Light Source (NSLS-II) is a new 3 GeV, 500 mA, high-brightness synchrotron light source facility being built at the Brookhaven National Laboratory. Approved for construction in January 2009, the NSLS-II project is expected to be completed in June 2014. In this paper we discuss the present status of the mechanical design and construction of some major components of this facility, namely (i) conventional facilities, (ii) injector complex (iii) storage ring, (iv) RF system and (v) beamlines.
