Abstract
We report on the mechanical design currently performed at the Magdalena Ridge Observatory Interferometer (MROI) and how the construction, assembly, integration and verification are planned towards commissioning. Novel features were added to the mechanical design, and high level of automation and reliability are being devised, which allows the number of reflections to be kept down to a minimum possible. This includes unit telescope and associated enclosure and transporter, fast tip-tilt system, beam relay system, delay line system, beam compressor, automated alignment system, beam turning mirror, switchyard, fringe tracker and vacuum system.
