Sears Tower



For 20 years, the Sears Tower held the record for the world’s tallest building. Completed in 1973, the 110 stories high building is almost half a kilometer tall. And it still holds the record for having the world’s highest antenna. John Zils, structural engineer and designer of this mega-structure shares some of the secrets about the tower. And get a behind-the-scenes look at some of the various systems and controls that are vital to the building, like security monitoring, the elevators, and the water and power distribution to the various levels, and even the machines that cleans the windows

Golden Gate Bridge





In 1906, an earthquake of magnitude 7.9 rocked San
Francisco. An earthquake of similar or greater proportions is expected
to occur in San Francisco again, and soon. The episode takes a look at
the efforts that are being made to retrofit and strengthen America’s
most recognized bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge, before the next big
earthquake happens. It also gives a brief history about the construction
of the suspension bridge, and the people who were involved in its
construction







Port Of Rotterdam









The Port of Rotterdam is a marine freeway and one of the
busiest ports. And on this particular day, the Harbour Control's skills
and machines are put to the test when three most challenging ships in
the world: 'The Berge Star', 'The Savana Express' and 'The Mighty
Servant III', respectively known as 'The Mega Deep', 'The Mega Wide' and
'The Mega Tall' are received.


















The Oresund, spanning 10 miles in length, is the longest
bridge in the world. The bridge links countries Denmark and Sweden, and
Megastructures chronicles the history in it's design and construction

Itaipu Dam







In the Paranل River of South America, lies the Itaipْ Dam.
Costing 20 billion dollars, the Itaipْ Dam is the world's largest and
most powerful hydroelectric power plant. It is a representation of the
efforts and accomplishment of two countries, Brazil and Paraguay. The
episode examines the efforts undertaken and the sacrifices made to
construct the dam, including how the largest diversion channel was
constructed to divert water from the world’s 7th largest river away from
the main construction site.
















The Rio-Antirio bridge is a cable-stayed bridge near Patra
on the Peloponnese, linking the towns of Rio and Antirrio on the western
mainland Greece, thus connecting with the rest of Europe.
The bridge dramatically improves access to and from the Peloponnese,
which could previously be reached only by ferry or via the isthmus of
Corinth at its extreme east end. It has a length of 2252 m (2882 m
including the access bridges); as it consists entirely of five
cable-stayed spans and four pylons, and it is one of the world's longest
cable-stayed suspended decks. Its width is 28 meters -- it has two
vehicle lanes per direction, an emergency lane and a pedestrian walkway.





Hoover Dam











Throughout human history, mankind has built monuments to
its ingenuity and skill. In Egypt it was the Pyramids. Rome, built the
Colosseum. The Greeks built the Acropolis. The great cathedrals of
Europe raised the skills of their builders to unequalled heights,
creating awe inspiring structures. In the Americas, the cliff dwellings
of Mesa Verde and the high mountain city of Machu Pichu speak to the
skill and ingenuity of their builders. In the modern era, it's buildings
that reach near half a mile into the sky, bridges that stretch enormous
distances in a single span, and machines that extend mankind's reach far
into space. One monument that must surely be counted among the great
achievements of mankind is Hoover Dam.












An enormous project is underway in the Arabian Gulf that
will change the face of the coastline. It is so vast that it can be seen
from space. Palm Jumeirah, one of the most audacious engineering
projects the world has ever seen, is an artificial island in the shape
of a massive palm tree. A breathtaking megastructure and an ambitious
engineering feat, Palm Jumeirah is part of an even bigger plan to
transform Dubai into one of the world's premiere tourist destinations.
But with only a few years to create this paradise island, it's a race
against time. Besides the construction of the island, there is also the
challenge of building a small city, including 4,500 luxury houses and
apartments, 29 hotels, miles of roads, and all the utilities required by
the thousands of people who will be living on and using this island
including water, electricity, gas and sewage. The project is due for
completion in 2008 - are they on course to meet their deadline? And what
other megastructures has the Sheikh planned for Dubai?

Millau Bridge











It is the world’s tallest bridge, at 343 m tall at its
highest pillar, the Millau Viaduct in Southern France is almost a third
taller than any other bridge in the world. A freeway in the sky, the
bridge crosses the river Tarn in France and can save travelers almost an
hour of travel between France and the Mediterranean. It also removes the
traffic congestion once faced in the town of Millau. The episode
documents the difficulties that the crew had to faced, and the
challenging processes that were used in its construction. The
documentary contains a few words from the mayor of Millau, Jacques
Godfrain, the bridge architect, Norman Foster, and designer, Michel
Virlogeux

Located near Johannesburg, South Africa, the Tau Tona is a
gold mine. The Tau Tona is the main economic life blood of Johannesburg,
supplying half the world’s gold needs. It is the deepest and largest
working mine in the world. Its main shaft is 3.6 km deep and consists of
800 km of tunneling. This episode gives viewers a tour of the dynamic
systems involved in maintaining a working environment deep in the earth.
It also provides a glimpse of what life as a mine worker is like in Tau
Tona. Risking heat exhaustion, and with 10 earthquakes a day, the miners
work through narrow tunnels to extract gold from a 25 cm thick gold vein

It is the largest passenger plane ever built and it is a 12
billion dollar investment. The episode documents the history of the
Airbus A380, from its design concept, its interior features, the
precision manufacturing, the logistics, the final assembly and its final
maiden flight

Steel is one of the strongest materials on earth. It has
altered civilisations and changed the course of history. From the
soaring skylines in a vast metropolis to dinner tables across the world
and razor sharp tools responsible for medical miracles: steel has helped
sculpt life as we know it. Come face to face with this alloy's
marvellous simplicity and the grand and innovative structures it has
given birth to, such as the Brooklyn Bridge and Empire State Building.







A look at the construction of the world's tallest hotel,
the Burj Al-Arab off the coast of Dubai. Rising 321 metres from an
artificial island in the Arabian Gulf, this sail-like structure boasts
numerous technical innovations, including the largest fabric wall and
atrium in the world, and a 'floating' restaurant. First envisioned by
Dubai's crown prince, the project was entrusted to an inexperienced firm
of British architects
