In this hands-on and investigative series, we explore 3 major construction operations. We’ll look at the thought processes behind planning for them, the mechanisms used to build them, and the history of the constructions. This way, we see where they came from and how they can be developed to adapt to modern needs.
Season 1, Episode 1 – “The Suez Canal”
It’s a major construction project, aimed at doubling the width of the Suez Canal and deepening its main waterway. 500 million cubic meters of sand and soil have already been transported from all over the world. Using unprecedented 3D images, we reveal how the canal will be widened. We also look back to the original construction, back in 1859, to show how it first came to be built.
