A liquid oxygen fuel plant was also built to supplement the supply from the now redeployed Eperleques site and underground barracks and administrative areas were dug out and lined with concrete.
In January 1944 an enormous concrete dome, or cupola, was built over the top of the facility, giving the site its name.

V-2s arrived from a number of factories in a continuous stream on several redundant rail lines, and launching was almost continual.

Another site was then started nearby in a huge quarry and called La Coupole, but it wasn't long before that too was bombed into submission.
