Building Paradise Island
Factories are marvels of mechanical design: creating an immense number of products in a short amount of time so that you and I can have things for far, far cheaper. When the market for a product dries up a factory either has to adapt and make something new or it dies, abandoned to slowly decay to the elements.
This was the fate of an industrial island rendered redundant, but a group of people saw the potential that this island had. For two years they have worked tirelessly to transform this island scrapyard into a paradise island. Witness this incredible process from start to finish as we follow the crews fighting the forces of nature and the challenges of isolation to transform a forgotten wasteland into a luxurious holiday destination.
