Despite its monumental image, the Great Pyramid of Giza would be a simple work to raise today. Only 12 cranes and 600 workers would be needed. It could be created in a few weeks rather than the 20 years that the Egyptians were taken.Turner Construction Company estimates that at today’s prices, the Great Pyramid would cost 1.3 billion dollars , less than hundreds of projects worldwide by utilizing latest technologies in the world. The cost is calculated with good food for the workers, but with Coke instead of beer.
