The large scale project necessitated the digging of over 10 million cubic meters of earth, sufficient to satisfy 4,000 Olympic-size swimming pools. In the production of the design, 2.4 million cubic meters of concrete, enough to fulfill 950 Olympic-size swimming pools, was used. As considerably as 450,000 tons of steel was utilized for support, and added 33,000 tons of steel was needed for the construction; that’s roughly the weight of 850 Airbus A380s.
