The detailed design and construction of the Cassegrain U-Band Efficient Spectrograph (CUBES) for ESO's VLT is expected to start in early 2022. CUBES will deliver unprecedented sensitivity at ground UV wavelengths, spanning 300-405nm at a resolving power of more than 20,000. I will give an update on the progress of the project and highlight some of the performance predictions for stellar abundances.
