Building Giants showcases how key technological innovations enable giant superstructures to be built. Footage filmed during construction along with CGI reveal the building process with astonishing detail. The premiere episode charts the creation of the new 71,000 seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The 1.4-billion-dollar stadium is being hailed as an architectural wonder because of its eight-petal retractable roof. Other episodes include a look at a massive new cruise ship that can hold more than 7,000 passengers and crew members; a new flood barrier in Venice designed to prevent the precarious ancient city from sinking into the ocean; an ambitious circular subway system that will run directly underneath the historic city center of Copenhagen; and the world's longest suspension bridge ever built in the Arctic Circle.
Expert engineers race against the clock to bridge the River Barrow with the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Bridge, the longest in Ireland. They use cutting-edge tech and innovative construction methods in a fight against unpredictable weather and dangerous heights to complete the massive project on time.
Expert engineers are racing to build a 2,000-foot-tall skyscraper that will be the third-tallest building in the world. But first, they must use cutting-edge tech and innovative construction to finish this record-breaking megastructure, the Merdeka PNB 118 Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
A team of expert engineers must build the MSC Gülsün, the world's largest container ship, in just 12 months. To do so, they use cutting-edge tech and the latest construction methods in a race to complete the massive project on schedule. It's 1300 feet long and can carry 223,756 containers.
An innovative new building seems to defy physics and float in mid-air. To build it, expert engineers use cutting-edge technology and the latest construction methods in a high-stakes race against the clock. The 650-room Nhow Amsterdam RAI Hotel is the largest hotel in the Netherlands.
An expert team of engineers is using cutting-edge tech and the latest construction methods to build Los Angeles's biggest engineering project ever: a series of brand-new subway lines in durable, earthquake-proof tunnels.
