Bruce took his project another step forward and consulted no less than Toronto’s subway designer and engineer. This designer was responsible for the construction of the system too, so he reviewed Bruce’s plans.
After inspecting it, he made a few changes. Now the plan of the site was complete, it was approved by a certified engineer (who even gave a few tips concerning the design) and Bruce could finally elevate his creation. Things were not going to stop there.
It Was Like No Other
"Ark Two" became the biggest structure in North America which was set underground. Yes, some of us might find it difficult to comprehend and see Bruce as an outrageous person, however, there is no doubt that on any scale, this was a great accomplishment.
Bruce created a 10,000 square feet bunker, and this bunker had the ability to be used as shelter during a nuclear blast. This astonishing place could accommodate almost 500 people at once. It was shocking that someone actually built it.
The Entire Community Could Fit In
It was designed in such a way, that it could house the entire community around them for several months. Bruce wasn't thinking only of himself, but he took his entire neighborhood into account. Now, if bruce thought constructing and pouring the cement was a challenge, there was more to come.
Bruce was passionate about "Ark Two". In fact, he was passionate about everything he did in life. There were no shortcuts, no easy ways, and whatever he touched was done to perfection.
Preserving Their Spot
No matter how talented bruce was and no matter how passionate he was about bringing "Ark Two" alive, there was no way he could execute this alone. He needed a few more pairs of hands and a few more believers. Only like-minded souls could participate in such a project.
Luckily enough, Bruce had many friends to come and help, and there was a good number of volunteers that could see the potential "Ark Two" had. They all shared the same vision and they all shared the same fear.
50 Per Day
More than 50 people gathered each day and took part in constructing this gigantic creation. For most, this place would be a haven of safety and as they did not know what the future might bring, they felt they had to do everything in their power to secure themselves.
Some of the volunteers thought the whole idea was ridiculous, however, they still took part in constructing the site. But why? Why did people who had no interest in eventually using the concrete bus premises spare their time and help in bringing "Ark Two" to life?
