The EVS is a colossal vehicle, dwarfing many of the structures it consumes. It closely resembles, and largely functions as, a sort of mobile grandiose factory that trudges its way across surrounding real estate. The EVS is limited by its size which makes the vehicle extremely slow and awkward to maneuver. The EVS destroys unwanted buildings by using its two front-mounted, mammoth arms. It scoops any salvageable wreckage into a mouth-like gap located at the front of the vehicle. The wreckage is then recycled; an action which drastically decreases the environmental impact of the EVS and provides some of the required material for new construction projects.
The interior of the EVS resembles that of a large foundry. Waste is carried through the interior to huge furnaces where recyclable materials are smelted and extracted for future use. This means the entire reconstruction cycle is self-sufficient, as parts for new buildings are created from the waste of older structures. However, several systems used by the EVS have become "glitchy" in recent years. Thus a small skeleton crew is constantly required to watch over the EVS and reprogram it when necessary.
