Tower made not only of ice — it also, according to the designers, was mixed with wood fiber and cellulose, to strengthen the construction (the average thickness of the tower walls, as reported, is 25 cm). It is noted that the tower project has been in development for two years. (In 2015, the same team built a tower height of 21 meters — now, therefore, the team was able to surpass the previous record by 10 meters.).

The experts that developed the project, suggest that the used method could be useful in the construction of temporary structures in extreme climatic conditions. They also plan to construct more ice buildings for the winter Olympics in 2022, which will be held in China.
