This achievement is unlocked on the way to completing the "Absolute Domination" achievement because milestone 8 for each of the four planets is building a Monolith.

Building a Monolith requires first building a Signpost and then a Pyramid. Each of these exterior structures is built for the following material costs:

Signpost: 1-2 Metal
Pyramid: 20 Bio-Plastic and 10 Metal
Monolith: 30 Bio-Plastic, 10 Metal, and 10 Semiconductors

As far as I know, these structures serve no purpose except to earn you some prestige points and complete a milestone; they have no actual function within the game. The game itself describes the Monolith as "An epic and totally pointless symbol of achievement."

Accordingly, I recommend accumulating enough resources to build all these structures, saving the game first then building them to complete the milestone and then exiting and reloading the savegame before the wasteful construction. Alternately, you could just recycle and lose a minor amount of metal from the connections. However, construction of these structures is also costly in man-hours and impacts the hunger/rest/hydration/morale of the population so it is best to restore the savegame and avoid the hardship. The milestone will remain unlocked.

Hope this helps.
