The LHCb muon system will use Multi-Wire Proportional Chambers (MWPC) in all regions with a particle flux between 1 KHz/cm^2 and 100 KHz/cm^2. After an overview of the chamber requirements and specifications, the design and construction procedures including the quality control of the detector system are described. The electrical layout is discussed and finally the cost breakdown and the construction schedule is presente
