DEAP-3600 is a single-phase liquid-argon dark matter detector that at time of writing is cooling down in preparation for filling at the SNOLAB facility near Sudbury, Ontario, Canada. DEAP-3600 is designed and constructed to achieve a sensitivity of 10−46cm2 for a WIMP-nucleon cross section for a 100 GeV WIMP. The steps taken in design and construction to achieve the ultra-low backgrounds required for such a sensitive WIMP search are reviewed.
