Highlights of the ATLAS Construction and Performance

The LHC programme is arguably the greatest coordinated scientific effort undertaken to date. One of the research facilities, ATLAS, is being prepared by more than 2000 engineers and physicists. The remarkable progress in the construction of ATLAS will be highlighted; some of the difficulties will also be mentioned. As we become more familiar with this complex facility we learn how to extract more revealing signals and to extend the physics reach,as will be shown with some examples.
