Abstract
We report on the design and construction of a CsI-RICH detector composed of four CsI photocathodes of 64 x 40 cm(2) each, and two C6F14 radiator trays of 133 x 41 cm(2). A detailed description of the novel elements is given a nd the performance of the detector is illustrated with some basic results o btained during the tests at the beam.
