Engineering Ground Zero

Image 1 / 8

Shot over three years and granted behind-the-scenes access ‘Engineering Ground Zero' follows the reconstruction of the hallowed 16 acres at Ground Zero. Profiling the architects, engineers and construction workers toiling to complete the September 11th Memorial, the transport hub and the Freedom Tower in time to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks; this extraordinary programme also explores their need to satisfy the public's expectations of a fitting site for national remembrance. Weaving intimate personal stories into this extraordinary construction endeavour, this unique one-off is an epic tale of engineering, innovation, and the perseverance of the human spirit.
