Mega Builders

Image 1 / 3

Sometimes a construction project is born of necessity and sometimes it's just for fun, but either way, commercial builders around the world are thinking big. With sophisticated tools, new high-tech materials and creative engineering, today's building projects can reach higher, stretch wider and push further than ever before. 'Mega Builders' takes viewers to the centre of these busy construction zones, with behind-the-scenes tours, computer-generated images of the completed projects and in-depth interviews with the project designers and builders. Viewers travel to construction sites all over the world to see the creation of everything from huge bridges and tunnels, designed to ease urban traffic congestion to sophisticated buildings, underwater dive sites and the world's fastest flying roller coaster. Construction is a risky job that is filled with unforeseen challenges and extreme tests of planning and fortitude.
