A tricky place for colonisation, although a tidally-locked world would be somewhat cooler on the dark side. Perhaps it would be better disassembled to create megastructures at a cooler distance.

As an intermediate step, it might be doable to set up automated resource extraction systems (possibly just on the dark side depending on how intense local conditions are) that launch payloads out to a habitat(s) orbiting at some more comfortable distance.

This is basically planetary disassembly, just slower. Smile
